She jotted down a few sentences from their prayers to share with her supporters a glimpse into the hearts of the Lisu Christians:.
I am worthy of death, and Thou has given me eternal life. The teachers encouraged their students to "keep tryst" with Jesus for a time of prayer and listening.
Isobel wrote:. At sunset time I slipped out for my usual tryst in the mountains.
I turned to the upward path, and suddenly turning a corner I came upon Junia and Lucius who were descending, apparently from the same errand on which I was bound.
