One of my favorite people in the world is my sweet sweet friend, Lena.
I hired her a couple years ago to help me when I was getting overwhelmed with housework...but over the years she has become a wonderful blessing in my life. She has an amazing heart of compassion and kindness that shines the light of Jesus! I'm so grateful for the opportunity to visit with her when she comes over once a week. I enjoy the casual chats we have about what's going on in the villages around us...but she also lets me ask difficult questions, when I'm not understanding something about the PNG culture or language, without judgement.
I'm also thankful for her willingness to help me clean (I know I would be drowning in housework without her!), and her patience with Miles who is continuously by her side asking, "Whatcha doin, Lena? Whatcha doin?" or "Lena, come play toys? Come on?"
Miles adores Lena, and she will always lovingly take a few minutes to play on the floor with him or involve him in her work.
Thank you, Lord for Lena's friendship!
