She stayed a few months longer then was planned — this was the good news. Yesterday, we had a good-bye party for the nurse, Marit Weilbach — this is the bad news.
Always friendly, helpful and positive, Marit Weilbach personified the perfect missionary nurse!
Most of the hospital staff celebrated with her, although the occasion was sad.
We remembered the last 2 ½ years with sketches, songs and a movie.
In the end, we can only say “thanks” to Marit for her work. There are memories and the hope that she will come back again one day.
Joan Baez sang her song: “Diamonds and Rust.” Nonetheless, we know that Christians never see each other for the last time.
Marit, may the Lord bless you and be with you wherever you go.
