Well, my young friend ended up developing a migraine a couple of hours before we were going to the class on baptism, so I took him home. But he did enjoy the few hours he spent at my home - he said it was peaceful ("No yelling and arguing and cussing"). He watched me make a few animals, and got on his facebook account, and we watched a couple of movies. One was Hardflip, about a skateboarder and his struggles, with his single mom in the hospital. The other was Beware of Christians, which followed four college students trying to live out their faith during a trip to Europe. Of course, both with Christian theme, just to feed my friend - stuff he probably doesn't get at home. He may not get in on this particular baptism, but that's okay. He has time to grow. And I gave him a "Jesus" Bible ( which has small studies showing how Jesus is revealed in the OT, plus some devotionals throughout) to keep at home. I'm going to start bringing a Bible to school with me - since my present assignment doesn't have computers in the classroom (love Biblegateway.com) - so when he stops by to see me, if he wants, we can cover some passages. If HE wants to. No pushing on my part - gotta respect the laws of the land.
