Just a few sprinkles this afternoon, but mostly a dry day. Praise the Lord for good weather for ladies’ meeting this evening.
Everyone was here for translation last night except Matyu who is still laid up with his bad foot, and Daniel who is in town. Matyu’s group finished checking Romans 15. One more chapter to go. Daniel’s group worked with Erik on translating Matthew.
This morning Daddy and I finished studying III John.
After Daddy left for Bible school, I had prayer time and went over tonight’s ladies’ meeting lesson. Then it was time for Serah and Jokapet to come. Serah had a busy morning and was working up until noon. Jokapet learned how to use bold type, use the tab, and draw lines. I worked on a song for tonight to strengthen some of the teaching they are getting — ”Bilip Tasol,” based on the chorus of “Only Believe.” Also worked on Bible study outlines, and made sure things are ready for printing tomorrow.
When I played the keyboard this afternoon, Daddy and I sang the chorus to “It Will Be Worth It All.” It is such a joy and comfort to think of the words to that hymn.
Steady rain most of the night. Roof is leaking quite badly now in the laundry room. Wan has patched and patched and patched, but still can’t seem to get to the source of that particular leak. Rainy most of the day today too. Serah hung out the clothes, but we ended up bringing them back inside and hanging them around the house. Kept the fire going most of the day.
We figure it rained steadily until wee hours of the morning. It was still raining at 2:45 when I got up. There was 1.8” in the rain gauge this morning.
After the ladies left, we got a shopping list made. Played some dominoes, and relaxed a bit before going to bed.
Daddy had charge of lotu this morning, as Nuanda didn’t come back yesterday like he originally planned. Devit took care of the song time and prayer time.
Epekio came by afterward with Ema and Vitoria. I gave Ema one of the little dresses that had come in the box with the computers. Wasn’t able to spend time with Epekio as there was lots of printing to do.
I worked on a pig puzzle for the children’s newsletter and have that all ready to scan in next time the generator is on. Daddy worked on the little bathroom cupboard, and I helped him with that when he needed me to. He finished that up today and got it sanded. Will have to get it painted this coming week.
Made some popo crisp this afternoon, cleaned the bathroom, and played the keyboard a while. The old hymns are a wonderful source of encouragement and strength. Thank the Lord for these songs of faith and doctrine.
“That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death.” Philippians 3:10 Why should souls who are quickened with Jesus, wear the grave-clothes of worldliness and unbelief? Rise, for the Lord is risen. —Morning and Evening
