June 30th was a sad day at ZION

Auntie Lena spent 6 months at Zion and left a lot of foot prints on everyone’s hearts.  On Thursday June 30th she began her journey back to the US and then she will head on home to Germany.  She will be married to Johannes (another volunteer who spent several weeks here at Zion) on August 13th.

Lena was a clown.  She made many laugh.  She taught the kindergarten class while she was here and I am sure those little kids will remember her for what they learned and the good times they had.  She worked in the med room and even taught a first aide class to the staff.  Lena spent a lot of time with the staff and they grew to love and care for her.

Lena certainly blessed our lives.  She was flexible and did what ever she was ask to do without any complaint.  She would even thank us for asking her to do any task.  We became “mom and dad” to her and that made us smileSmile  We know her “real parents” and her heavenly Father are proud of her and her service at Children of Zion and service to the Lord.

God willing, maybe she and Johannes will return again some day. 

Thank you Auntie Lena and God Bless you and Johannes in your marriage and new life together! 

Love, Your “African” parents.    P1170224
