The dark work of missionaries

Sit in the dark or choose to press-on.
No power for a sewing machine, but measuring and cutting curtain panels is; one more thing off the list.

What if, in your line of work, a battery lantern is near the top of the required equipment list? It’s evening, and for whatever unexplained reason, the power is off, again.

“There are choices to be made……..sit in the dark and reason why or find another way.”

Robin always has a project or two in the works. Tonight, rather than admitting defeat, she is on the kitchen floor with a lantern, measuring out material for curtains that will be used in the Christian Academy, here in Quetzaltenango, Guatemala. I call this the missionary spirit at work.
