Last Friday morning saw us farewell a group of fifty-two netballers in Lae for national junior competition….. only to turn around and start preparing rooms for around forty senior netballers in town for the weekend.
It is a rare sight to see the “Cleaning in progress” tags on virtually every livable space in our Guesthouse.
Our staff worked feverishly to strip and remake beds, wipe down surfaces, mop floors, reinstate kitchen cupboards, and of course…. set a vase of fresh flowers on the table. Available office staff also pitched in dealing with a constant stream of sheets and towels needing to cycle through the washers, dryers and clothesline space stretched to the limit.
It is a credit to our staff that both groups spoke highly of their wonderful stay, the beautiful grounds, clean rooms, and the way in which we made them feel welcome.
That said… we REALLY appreciated our quieter week that followed!
Please pray …
- thanking God for the servant heart that our staff display in their work.
- that the outcomes of our work will be seen for what it is… an expression of our desire to honour God with our efforts.
- thankful for the positive injection into our budget for the year [which ends September 30], with all proceeds from our operation contributing to the work of translation and related ministry.
