Linda Krieg departs from the Siawi people with one packed suitcase and one full heart.

Linda Krieg said her good-byes to her beloved Siawi people last week. The evening before she left, the Siawi church organized a “big send-off meal, with wild pig, greens from the jungle cooked in coconut milk and rice.”

After the fellowship meal, one of the elders stood and said, “Don’t mourn tomorrow when Linda leaves. God sent the missionaries so that we could have life.”
