April 18. 9:30 P.M. It’s been a long day. Daddy had hoped to come in first flight this morning, but the weather was bad this side of Goroka so flights were done on the other side first. By afternoon, the weather had turned bad in Goroka so there was no flight at all. I was so sad. I couldn’t help crying.
The weather wasn’t really good here, but it was open enough for the plane to get in.
Before lotu, I got the laundry all sorted out so we could wash clothes as soon as Daddy got home — something that never came to pass. Put clean sheets on the bed and remade the bed.
Lotu started fairly late this morning. Matthew taught more on knowing God’s will, using “The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord.”
During the day, I finished up another Bible school lesson outline. After nap today, I got a fire going because the air had turned chilly, and it rained lightly for several hours. Also washed my hair and cleaned the bathroom. This evening, I worked on the Power Point presentation for the school kids.
Graham and Sunny came this evening and corrected school work for me. There was a lot of work from yesterday’s classes. I was thankful for their help. Sunny also prepared greens for me which Sakias had brought this afternoon so I can have them for dinner tomorrow. Graham brought in some fat pieces of firewood for me because that side of the wood box was nearly empty. I also let him practice his typing a while, while I marked and recorded grades.
“68Then Simon Peter answered him, Lord, to whom shall we go? thou hast the words of eternal life. 69And we believe and are sure that thou art that Christ, the Son of the living God.” John 6:68,69
April 19. Almost 8:00 p.m. Raining.
Didn’t get up until a little after 6:00 this morning. After getting dressed and having my morning lemon-soda drink, it was time for Daddy to call. I was happy to hear his voice. After talking with him a while, I made some pancakes for my breakfast. And after breakfast and quiet time, I got the questions made for the Bible school lesson I finished yesterday. Then I got notes together from the other files so I can make the outline for the next Bible school lesson. By then it was time for lotu.
Matthew preached this morning on Galatians 1:3-6, and in the afternoon on verses 7-12. Praise the Lord for the salvation this morning of a youth named Antau from Marivo. His father has been dead for some years — recognized the name when Matthew said it, but I’ve forgotten now. His mother is still living, and he lives with her. Sometimes he comes and stays with Matthew. Yonupero is one of his uncles, and George’s wife is his sister.
After the second meeting, I talked for a while with some of the people. After they all left, I looked over things for tomorrow’s lessons and wrote some practice work on the chalkboard. Later I looked for some weather pictures to use in science class later this week. Then I did the dishes before coming to the computer.
“16Jesus answered them, and said, My doctrine is not mine, but his that sent me. 17If any man will do his will, he shall know of the doctrine, whether it be of God, or whether I speak of myself.” John 7:16,17
