I woke the last two mornings at 5:30 am to someone outside singing and praying. I could hear at one point that they were praying . “… we don’t know if he is going to die or not, but it is your work (euphemism for “Up to you or in your hand”)”. Well I freaked out and thought someone was dying in the house sick next door. Alembo is really sick (TB) his wife is sick (Probably the same) also Yanis’ boy Jon has been sick. as have several others. So I jumped up – threw on clothes went outside. and it was barely light. nobody was around. then walking down the trail was Faimbot — he was just walking, praying, singing. I said, “What’s wrong?” He looked at me and smiled with that look like “why are you asking me this” and replied, “Nothing – I am just watching the sun rise and singing and praying.” We had never taught the Hewa people to do this, yet it is a natural outflowing to spend time early in the morning watching the sun come up, praising and praying to our Wonderful Father. VERY COOL.
