Barnabas Award

Pamela West is a repeat volunteer at Kudjip.  We pretty much can't keep her away.  She has traveled to PNG five times now, giving of her talents and her life.  And she is VERY talented.

Pamela is a radiographer (x-ray technician.)  Every time she comes, we notice a dramatic improvement in the quality of our x-rays.  She does a wonderful job training our national staff.  And she has miraculously kept our equipment running despite power surges and broken machines and water shortages.

In addition to her technical skills, she is a blessing to missionaries and nationals alike.  Pamela is a banana-bread-baking, dish-washing, dog-walking, house-sitting, friend-making servant!

Pamela recently finished up a six month stay at Kudjip.  Just before she left, she was presented with the Barnabas award.  I missed the special day because I was away on holiday.  Here is what Dr. Erin wrote in her blog...

"[The Barnabas Award is] an award that we give out to folks who have gone above and beyond the call and have encouraged us as they have served.  Pam definitely deserves this award and I am thankful that I have had the chance to know her and have certainly been encouraged by her example of service.  Thank you Pam for loving and serving our Lord and for serving us."

Pamela Westimela... YOU ROCK.

"Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward.  It is the Lord Christ you are serving."
~ Colossians 3:23-24
