Seeing God Colors in Other People

This is Rosangela.

Rosangela

She cooks for us every day: breakfast, lunch, mid-afternoon coffee and bread, dinner, and desert.

Lunch’s dessert.

She is a fantastic cook.

Rosangela rarely went far from this stove.

Rosangela came from Rio de Janeiro. 20 years ago, she thought she’d be a missionary in Africa, but could not go. So she came to Taunay to work with the Indians instead. She was told that there were Indians everywhere out here. She was told that they’d meet her at the train station. She thought they’d be painted and feathered. They were not. She thought she was lost and sat down to cry at the train station. But Adier’s family found her.

Adier is on the far left.

Now they call her their adopted daughter. For the past 20 years she has lived with them and served in the local bible school across the road. She is such a blessing everyone around her. I am thankful to God for Rosangela. Her hospitality and love was never ending. We were in her kitchen from 8am until 9pm and she always had something for us and always wanted to talk… or communicate somehow since we only knew pieces of each other’s language.
