Yesterday I decided to read the first chapter of Ruth with my two friends via a phone call. They took turns reading and I read some too. One of the friends had to leave the call sooner than planned, so the other friend and I discussed it further. She said she likes to read these stories and she feels like she is in the story. Her mother in law died 6 years ago and she said she was a very kind woman who prayed a lot. This friend has also read the story of Rahab with me and really liked it. I see Ruth as a good book to read together with our friends who are in transition of moving to a new country. The one friend who left the call early is moving to Canada within the next 9 months or so. I also shared Psalm 91:4 and the word refuge and refugee. She really liked it and told her.
