NWR: Something's happening...! :-D

So a good friend of FI's moved back to Florida recently. He was a typical bachelor type nice guy but not really religious or anything. When he first moved here about 2 months ago FI had invited him to church to just get to know some people since he had moved a few years ago and really didn't know anyone. He actually came, which was kind of surprising because church wasn't really his thing. FI invited him a few other times, sometimes he came, sometimes he didn't. He would go out with our group after church though and really seemed to enjoy it. Well tonight at the end of service, as they were singing the last song, FI's friend came over to where we were sitting! Apparently he had come on his own, without FI inviting him, without even telling FI he was coming, and sat there the whole service by himself even though knows where we sit and could easily have found us...! I was so excited to see him! So I asked FI on the way home if he'd invited him (at that point I wasn't sure) and FI got all excited saying that he hadn't. He says he feels like he's got an opening now to talk to his friend to kind of hear his thoughts, see where he stands on it. I'm so excited that he could be on the way towards a whole new life!!!

    That's awesome!  It's great that your FI is not being pushy and it seems like God is working on him.

    FI is definitely not a pushy person, he's an observer, he likes to gauge the situation before he steps in. I love that because when he takes the time to evaluate it, he's realy smart and knows how to go into the situation. He's been available to his friend without turning him off to church and faith, and now he's got such a great oppurtunity!!
