A couple of weeks ago, one of our translation families was getting ready to go out to their village for a 3-4 month stay. We hosted them for Sunday dinner the day they left. Later we discovered that one of the kids had left his ONLY pair flip-flops at our house.
After the family got to the village we got a radio message asking us to please send the flip-flops out to the village sometime. “No big hurry,” we were told. He only needs them in time for the trip back to town on the ship in August!
