Photography is fulfilling and fun
I have enjoyed having a nice digital camera. Today I discreetly took pictures of the funeral of one of our most precious missionairies, Iliana Pincu, who was born in Romania and spent half the year overseeing the building of rural congregations, youth ministry and the care of a group of widows and handicapped people.
These singers are all Romanian, and they sang a hymn in their native language. It was very moving. Her death at 61 was totally unexpected as was the medical malpractive death of her husband who was the pastor evangelist seven years ago. Its mysterious why some live and some die young. Iliana was the real thing, and with all my heart and soul I believe she lives on another shore, in a greater light.
