Hopestill Pillow

Today we made the journey to Hopestill Pillow’s grave. Tucked away in the rear back corner of the graveyard under a tree, is her grave.

We heard her obitury and a brief biographical account of her life and works from the Baptist 2002 article. Its amazing that the second missionary from Nz and from our church to make such a commitmemt to service knowing that there was always a possibilty of never coming back. Communiction is made in months not seconds, no electricity, no modern medicine, none of the usual support from close ones around you.

But yet this lady put in 6 yrs more than what some will do in their lifetime. And has a legacy we still talk about to this day.
