I am thankful for my co-workers. The Dunn family is back in Hewa dealing with the fallout from all of this when we just couldn't handle it emotionally and physically. They are teaching and discipling after the suicide and are now leading the rescue attempt for these families.
The Kopf family has served the Hewa for 12 years and in three different locations. They have seen tragedy upon tragedy and have dug deep into the minds and hearts of the Hewa people to know how they think and what exactly needs to happen to help these ladies who are marked. They are currently on furlough in America with a very busy traveling and speaking schedule but are still taking the time to email and guide us in what needs to be said and done in these situations.
In these times when I feel so alone, confused, helpless, and inadequate I am so thankful that God blessed us with two families with different gifts and abilities to share this burden. And above all I am so thankful for each of their hearts for the Lord and for the Hewa people.
