A couple of weeks ago I was shocked to see that one of the kitchen/ wash areas had been totally transformed into a new nurse’s room.
And, not only had it undergone a total makeover, it had been done in just three days!
Kelly, Lisa and Amy Boone from a supporting church in Los Angeles, breezed in to the ZOE Children’s Homes and quietly went about their mission.
All three young women painted, cleaned, moved furniture and set up the room as a blessing to ZOE. All who witnessed their complete dedication to the task were overwhelmed at the dramatic developments in such a short time.
After my brief interview with the Boone sisters, Kelly, a trained nurse, was beginning a workshop with the house parents on basic medical procedures as well as an explanation of the layout and storage systems in the new nurse’s room.
Despite my best efforts to convince Kelly to stay and be our ZOE nurse, and her admitting to being tempted, she is returning to America to further her qualifications. Kelly did admit, however, that she isn’t opposed to missions-related work in future.
To Kelly, Lisa and Amy: thank you so much for your hard work. Everyone at ZOE really appreciates your efforts. We hope you come back again – either for a short-term visit … or for longer!
