Auntie Margaret's 50th anniversary

Margaret Mugang, or "Auntie Margaret" as so many affectionately call her, is the head nurse in the operating theater at Nazarene Hospital.  And her position is well-earned...  she has served here more than 30 years now!

Last weekend Margaret celebrated her 50th anniversary a.k.a. birthday.  Friends and family gathered at her home place of Gunga Village.  Of course no celebration in PNG would be complete without a program!  Several students from the college of nursing lead the group in worship.  Pastor Philip shared some scripture.  Dr. Jim thanked Margaret for her years of service at Kujip.  A mumu feast was laid out for all the guests to eat more than their fill.  Somehow we still had room for cake and ice cream :).

Auntie Margaret is a tireless servant, champion of the Gospel, prayer warrior, friend of missionaries, and so much more.  What a joy to celebrate her life!

"The righteous shall flourish like a palm tree,
they will grow like a cedar of Lebanon;
planted in the house of the Lord,
they will flourish in the courts of our God.
They will still bear fruit in old age,
they will stay fresh and green,
proclaiming, "The Lord is upright;
He is my rock, and there is no wickedness in Him."
~ Psalms 92:12-15
