April 25th and 26th: Br. Ibrahim Youxi Kang and his wife, Sr. Fatima Chen, delivered a fantastic series of lectures. On Friday, Br. Ibrahim spoke about "Being Muslim in China." Br. Ibrahim and Sr. Fatima continued this conversation on Saturday, as well as reflecting on lessons from Surah Yusuf. What a blessing it was for our community to welcome these scholars to our town!
We also enjoyed Baby Sarah's Aqiqah on Saturday!
Thank you to our community for a wonderful weekend of learning and bonding!
