It has always been amazing to me that these young adults love to WORK! My American children would run away rather than do garden work and the kids here can't wait for spring to plant. Its a God thing, He gives them the drive.
In Missions there is always wonderful news but now and then, just like in real life, some of the bad sneaks in. We found out that Maria has cancer and though we all went through a dreadful time of sorrow over this news, we are now beginning to see what a glorious world she will be entering soon. Maria has always been confined to a prone position, has never walked, talked or mobile in any way. Now we all understand she is going home to have the time of her afterlife with Jesus! Please pray for her and the rest of the mission that we will be ready to let her go.
