Faty

Last night we went up to Negrito to lead the youth group.  We have moved location from the living room to the outside porch.  Our space has doubled and we are filling our space up quickly!  Last night 28 teenagers came, and the 2 new girls who came gave their lives to Jesus.  God is convicting hearts and it was a powerful service. 

The kids get in line to sign in so we have a record of our attendance.  I noticed that one of the girls was new (who later accepted Christ) and so I asked her her name.  She said what sounded like Fah-ti.  I asked her to repeat herself multiply times because it sounded like Faty, but I couldn't imagine that that would be anyone's name!  I asked her to spell it for me and she told me : F-A-T-Y.  Yep, it's Faty.  I had to bite my lip hard to keep from giggling and was able to hold it in until I was alone.  Wow, what name!
