Special Morning Tea
Yesterday afternoon, I had a kitchen full of beautiful girls laughing and decorating a cake.
Sarah led the class. She is so good with younger children.
The girls were working on a very special surprise cake to help us celebrate a very special lady today.
This morning we joined the rest of our SITAG family for morning tea. Morning tea is a normal, everyday break around 10 to grab a cup of tea or coffee and sit down to visit for a few minutes with anyone who happens to be in Honiara. Sometimes we have visitors from other countries, sometimes national translators are around, sometimes employees and translation advisors drop in.
But this morning was anything but normal, it was a special surprise time of thanksgiving for Cynthia's return, initiated by sweet Betsy, one of SITAG's faithful employees. Cynthia really made an impact on the employees here while she lay in the hospital bed close to death.
After a few songs about God's faithfulness, we gathered around Cynthia to thank God for her past and to pray for her future here in the Solomon Islands.
And then, like all good people of God, we celebrated with a table full of good things to eat!
