Rondy was an amazing woman. As I have thought about her over these last few weeks, I realize that she was truly filled with the Holy Spirit. She went to her job early every morning and did not get home until dusk. She was extremely involved in church ministry, as a board member, leading Bible studies, and many other ways. She did a lot to bring the Know Your Bible studies into PNG and translated many of the studies into Tok Pisin. She raised her four children and helped pay for her husband to study in the Philippines. I never heard her complain. We held an English Bible study with one other woman on being an excellent wife. The three of us shared deeply during this time, but still she never had a harsh word to say.
I am challenged by Rondy's life. She did so many things, and she did them well. She did them with a good attitude. She did them in God's strength. Our pastor shared a brief sermon the Sunday after her burial on the vine and the branches. Rondy truly was abiding in Jesus, and He abided in her.
