Milia Pino is a The Word for Today reader in Papua New Guinea. Her husband was a police chaplain but he recently passed on leaving Milia a widow.

Due to loneliness, she was left alone and The Word for Today was her best friend.

Tragically, her house burnt down and she lost her power sewing machine. But she read in last year’s The Word for Today a similar story and that story encouraged her. It quoted Isaiah 43:19-20.

Forget the former things, do not dwell on the past, see I am doing a new thing.

Amen. She felt like God was talking to her. She immediately felt God’s peace. She is now trusting God for new things to happen in her life.
