Henk stained the arbour over the patio, sanded and painted the window lintels, cut the lawn twice, washed and vacuumed my van, swept out the garage and helped out inside as well. I asked Henk to lead us in devotions during mealtimes and in the evenings. It was a wonderful time that we had together; almost like having your own live-in pastor. Thank you dear brother. I miss you already. God bless you in your work at Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary.
My sister took over most of the food preparation, serving, and cleaning up in the kitchen. She was a big help for Lena. Margaret also helped by taking many turns watching me in the night so that Lena could get a full nights sleep. The extra pair of hands lightened the load and her cheerful spirit brought a lot of joy into our home. We laughed and cried a lot together. It was vey difficult to say goodbye. We look forward to their next visit.
