Rachel Answers Questions
1. Where are you from?
I am originally from Penty Village, but I have spent most of my years in a little town called Runtford -- not far from the castle.
2. What is your greatest hope?
Before the story started, I suppose my greatest hope was...well...there is a young man...I suppose there is no need to hide anything from you...there is a young man whom I love very deeply...and my greatest hope was that he would ask me to marry him. There! That was my greatest hope.
3. What do you pray for?
I pray for the young man that I love - that he would prosper and do well, that he would always be secure in the love of the Lord, that he would walk in wisdom. I pray for my little town - that change would come for the better, that the injustice and cruelties would stop, that our food would not be taken away. I pray for the kingdom - that God would turn the hearts of our leaders toward Himself.
4. What is your greatest fear?
I try to not be fearful. The Lord tells us to be anxious for nothing. He tells us that He has not given us a spirit of fear. I remind myself of that often - sometimes it is hard when that dungeon brute is in town. I fear for Jacob. Then I go home and spend time in prayer to remind myself that I need not be afraid when God is on my side.
5. Do you have any pets?
No, I don't. Poor people cannot afford to feed extra mouths.
Oh, Jacob is teasing me! He says I had a pet bull once. That is not true. I only took a shortcut through its field one time, and I never did it again. By the way, he and I have two slightly different versions of that story...
