Photohunt: Kindness

This week's theme Kindness made me think how to do this. Then I thought of Pat Holdaway. I have been privileged to work in Mt Albert Baptist Church's ESOL Class the past 5 years. To me, Pat is the epitome of Kindness.

Pat lived her working life as a nurse in Africa, survived a revolution. How she survived when the attackers came was a miracle.

When she retired, she came back to MABC, first as a helper and then a teacher. She has much rapport with the African refugees and her knowledge of French helps. Her health failed and she can't eat anything not prepared by her.

Here to you, Pat, my hat off to you.
