When UBF shepherds and missionaries fish on the campus, they do not know whether the person they are fishing is married or not. Even if the sheep accepts Bible study, the sheep may not mention they are married until the first Bible study. If the sheep chooses to continue Bible study, the shepherds and missionaries will continue to study with them. If the married sheep becomes more active in UBF, an effort will be made to encourage the sheep's spouse to study the Bible. My experience has been that as long as a sheep is willing to study, the shepherd will not worry about any conflicts until they come up. In the ministry I was in, we were so desperate for growing sheep, anyone with a pulse would showed up for Bible study was great.

In Christ,
