  1. This is a beautiful story. Thank you for sharing it. Blessings to you and your husband as you serve in Indonesia…and to your precious friend. I pray for Jesus to become irresistible and real to her…that she would know His peace and His love for her.

  2. Love this! It’s those guest who won’t leave that seem to frustrate us the most, when they also tend to need us the most. Thanks for sharing your experience!

  3. Praying for your friend to find courage and Jesus!

    Thank you for being there in the moment for her and not worrying about dinner or a clean house. God has put you there for a reason and is using you–thanks for being available!


  4. This moves me so — helping me see the Father and His heart for the broken hearted. I am so thankful for your words and beautiful heart. Thank you.

  5. Be present….now that is an exhortatioin straight from the Lord. Will be praying your Indonesia friend comes to know the King of Kings Rebecca. For sure she is seeing something different in you.

    We are missionaries with New Tribes, served for 7 years in Papua New Guinea, right around the corner from you. I have flown on those MAF planes, so very thankful for Godly pilots who give of their talents to take the gospel all over the world.

  6. So interesting that I came across this post after reading Jessica’s about not over-committing during the holidays. Sums it up beautifully – just to respond to God’s timings and not stick strictly to our own agendas. Lovely post.

  7. Oh my, that’s beautiful. Thank God you were there and listened at that time she needed it. Praying it all works out and God bless you and your family.
