En solstrålehistorie for en værtsfamilie

Danielle boede hos os i efteråret 1996. Hun var den 20. DIS studerende ud af de 35, vi har haft. Hun kom fra Florida. Hun havde tidligere været i 8 forskellige lande og opholdt sig en tid som barn i Indien. Hun havde været lærer for adskillige søndagsskoleklasser.

Men i modsætning til andre aktivt troende studerende lod hun sine religiøse aktiviteter hvile, mens hun var her. Hun var meget ensom, og ulykkeligvis havde hun nogle familiemæssige problemer, der optog hende en hel del. Men der ud over var hendes ophold en succes.

Da Danielle rejste, skrev hun i vor gæstebog:

“It seems like only a few days ago that I arrived in Denmark, and now in just a few hours I will be returning to the United States, coming from a larger family, I have often felt lost in the shuffle, but I have enjoyed being “the only child here.” I can’t tell you how much I loved having my own bathroom.

I anticipate it will be quite a difficult switch to eating the Floridian subtropical fish for I have grown to like the cold-water fish much more, and I will always remember all the blackberries, apricots, grapes, plums, tomatoes, and potatoes that grow in your backyard. I hope you will let me share my oranges and grapefruit from my backyard with you.

I really enjoyed cooking meals for you for I do not think anyone else has ever made remarks about it. You have made me feel so comfortable and welcome in your home, and I have really been thankful for this because sometimes I am not sure where my home is – Florida, Ohio, or other places I have studied or lived in the past few years.

It has been so good to know that I have a home in Denmark. All the conversations with Leif have been very helpful for I am now thinking about myself and my future in a different way, and Kirsten, your enthusiasm for your work and the tenderness you show to your patients has been an inspiration to me. I hope that when I become a doctor I can treat my patients the way you do. Thanks for a wonderful four months and a lot of pleasant memories
