In June we said a sad goodbye to Dr. Melissa and in the same month, God answered prayers to the 9:38 initiative. We are so very excited to have Edith officially join the 61 Isaiah team this year. She has worked as a translator for the past two years so many of you have met her. For those who have not had the chance to work with her yet… well… get ready. They say that good things come in small packages and Edith is no exception. I tried to find ways to describe Edith but have come to the conclusion that there are no words. Seriously. She is a spitfire and one of the most humble, caring, giving, and loving young ladies I have ever served with. Her contagious laugh and mischievous grin are rivaled only with her desire to serve Christ and those around her. She feels deeply for others. In the two years that I have known Edith, I have seen her cry only a handful of times and every time has been for someone else. I have seen her make hundreds of people laugh and watched her serve and love hundreds more. She is a great example of Colossians 3:11. I hope this verse gives you an idea of the young lady Edith is and the little sister we ask that you pray for daily.
“Put on then, as God’s chosen ones, holy and beloved, compassionate hearts, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience.”

I have also heard that dynamite comes in small packages! That too describes Edith. The explosion of Gods love gets all of those around her! I still remember that first summer we went door to dot sharing that love in the neighborhoods around the hotel we all share each year!
We love you, been praying for this since March. Welcome aboard!!

What a blessing indeed!
Can’t wait to come back and visit with everyone, and continue building relations within the community.
We enjoyed Edith so much. She is dearly loved by our team and can not wait to see what God continues to do in and through her.
