    Thanks, Sr Ruth Ellen, for your service. What a privilege it is to be able to live with the wonderful people of PNG. I had that privilege for only a year and a half back in the 1970’s teaching high school. Your stories brought back delightful memories. Being a part of the global Christian faith community brings home so forcefully that it is God who is at work calling and drawing all people to saving faith in Him. We are his hands and feet, being willing to even eat snake and live in the cross cultural divides that can either draw people in or turn them away. May God bless you and the the next place of service, wherever he is calling you to next.
