A Volunteer for Jesus

As Emma finished introducting her song with the aid of translation by missionary Nancy Quinlan and walked over to the pinao to sing, Larry Quinlan leaned over to me and said, “you have to be very proud of your daughter.”  I could hardly answer back as my throat was getting a little choked up and my eyes were getting ready to be wet (with tears).  Yes I’m very proud of all my children but this trip has given me the opportunity to appreciate some things about my oldest that I may not have noticed under “normal” conditions.  I’ll save the specifics for her when she wakes up, but for now I just want to send all those who supported my daughter and prayed for her while she was on this trip a few recent photos so that you can see her in action.  She has been a tremendous blessing to her father, the missionaries and the nationals she has interacted with.  Thanks to all who have invested in her.  God has used her for good and I think He is very proud of her as well.

Emma has tried every thing put in front of her and has liked most of it.  This traditional Thai tea not withstanding.
