Clothesline

Last week Dar Mo asked me for a length of rope over which she could hang the clothes she had washed by hand in cold water in their bath tub.  I ran over to the Family Dollar and got her a line and some clothes pins.  On Saturday when I went by the house they still had not hung the clothes line.  So I took Peter (the husband) outside and showed him how to tie up the rope and use clothes pins to attach the clothes.  We didn’t need a translator, the family just needed my time and interest.  Now down the road we can work on a wash machine for them and then get their hot water working in the house.   “The need is great but the laborers are few,  just pray that the Lord of the harvest will send out workers.”

Update:  I checked in on October 5 and they now have hot water for use by this large Kayah family
