Moms and Friends Bible Club Returns!

Today we met for the first time  since Winter break. As I did with the girls, I taught about Eve. I also practiced sharing a gospel presentation in Hindi! Of course at this point, I had to read some of it, but they were happy to see me read! After I tell our story in English, one of the ladies reads it from the Bible. That's good for both of us. At Christmas, they each got an NT. If any of them asks me for a full Bible, I will give it to them. These ladies are from Hindu Sikh, and Buddhist background.
I also shared about St. Patrick's Day. It gave me yet another opportunity to share His story through sharing the story of Maewyn Succat, who later came to be known as Patrick. We made two dishes: pretzels shaped like shamrocks, and Colcannon, an Irish dish made with potatoes, leeks, and cabbage.

4 tsp yeast                  1 tsp sugar                1 1/4 cup warm 9110 F or 45C ) water
Dissolve yeast and sugar in warm water.
In a large bowl, mix 5 cups all purpose flour, 1/2 cup sugar, and 1 1/2 tsp of salt.
Make a well in the center and add the yeast mixture and 1 Tbsp of oil. Knead on a flour surface until smooth, about 7-8 minutes. If dry, add a little oil.
Make into a ball and put in a greased bowl in a warm place to rise for about an hour.
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Dissolve 1/4 cup baking soda in 4 cups of warm water.
Divide the dough into twelve balls. First make a snake, then twist into shamrock shape. Dip the pretzels into the baking soda water and place on a greased cookie sheet. Sprinkle with kosher salt, or a topping of your choice. We used chili flakes, chili powder, garlic salt, parsley, and other seasonings.
Bake for about 10 minutes.

Five large potatoes peeled and sliced
1 head of green cabbage chopped
3 leeks sliced
1 cup milk
1/4 tsp nutmeg
salt and pepper to taste
1. Put the potatoes in a pot and boil until tender, about 20 minutes. Drain and mash.
2. In a separate pot, boil cabbage for 15 minutes.
3. In a skillet, cook leeks in milk until tender.
4. Add nutmeg, smashed potatoes, cabbage, salt and pepper. Stir to combine.
Serve hot.
My ladies like topping it with diced green chilies!
