Lifting the window blinds, Senjuti saw the small patch of grass in front of her tiny apartment turn from a sunlit pale green to a darker shade as the sun made its final descent for the day. Soon yellow street lamps would turn on. Cars would pull into tiny, designated carports, and people would hurry into their homes, without so much as looking at the people they walk past. It was 7 p.m. before she realized it. The small grassy courtyard stood empty and alone, reflecting how her life had turned out.
Senjuti spoke little English. The only time she dared venture outside her home was when her husband accompanied her shopping or going to the mosque. Her days were spent cooking and cleaning and making long distance calls to a family and community whose warmth and affection accentuated this cold isolation she endured. She loved her husband who did his very best to make her comfortable, but he had to work long hours and often during the weekends.
Pray that members of the Bangladeshi community in Los Angeles will come in contact with a loving Christian community that would embrace them with the love of Christ. Pray that Bangladeshi Muslims will experience the loving-kindness of the Lord.
