June 14. A few drops of rain fell from the sky around midday. Otherwise it was another very dry day. Since I didn’t do the wash last night, I did not get up early this morning. Got up around ten past six and had breakfast and quiet time. Got the bed made and laundry sorted out. Still nobody was here for lotu. It was 7:30 before a handful of people were here and lotu started. Tomas did the teaching this morning, using Romans 8:5-8 and 13 as his text. He talked about the difference between those who walk after the flesh and those who walk after the Spirit.
Right after lotu, Daddy started the generator and we did the wash. Only did two loads today as we will need to wash again Tuesday evening so Daddy can pack his things on Wednesday to go to town on Thursday. The sun was shining nicely, and there was lots of blue sky when I went out to hang clothes. It felt good to be out there in the fresh air and sunshine.
After I came back in, I had a snack and then spent the rest of the morning finishing up lesson plans for this coming week of school.
After nap this afternoon, I put the pictures from Tuesday’s project day into the Kodak file. Then I shut down the computer and went to the kitchen. Daddy had cut up part of a large pumpkin for me, and I got that peeled and diced and put into the pot for soup. Peeled, washed, and diced a few potatoes, and also cut up some spring onions. Added herbs, butter, and beef bouillon, and put the soup on to cook. Then I turned on the computer again and started fixing up the math lessons for this next week. Since the battery was getting low, I plugged the power cord into the inverter, and turned on the inverter. After I had worked for a while, I suddenly noticed that the computer wasn’t charging, and the battery was almost down to 40%. What could be wrong? We checked all the connections, and everything seemed to be fine. Had the computer adapter gone bad? We couldn’t figure out what was wrong so I shut down. It was almost time to eat anyway.
After supper, while I was cleaning up the table, Daddy went again to see if he could find out why the computer hadn’t been charging. Finally discovered that one of the prongs had broken off the adapter that we use to connect the computer cord to the inverter. Now, where did we put the old adapter? We hunted all around the office, looked through a couple drums, boxes, suitcase. Where could it be? I asked the Lord to help us find it. Otherwise, I wouldn’t have any way to use the computer or printer when Daddy goes to town. The Lord put in my mind to look on our bedroom shelves where my craft things are. Praise the Lord, there it was! Daddy charged up the computer for a while, while I did the dishes.
This evening, I finished getting math lessons ready for printing. Daddy had Bible school class with Wilson, and now a couple handfuls of young people are here practicing some songs to sing at outreach tomorrow.
“18For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: 19And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.” Revelation 22:18,19
