January 20. The Lord gave us another nice, warm morning. I was thankful that it wasn’t as hot as yesterday. Winds came up again this afternoon, but no rains until late afternoon. It is raining just lightly this evening, and students are here for Bible school.
We had quite a busy day at school. The students started translating Jeremiah 32:23 this morning, but got stuck on the last part of the verse. So they are going to talk it over with their fathers and see how it should be translated. The work we did in the other classes took longer than I expected so it was after 1:30 before we had our lunch and going on 2:30 before we had our nap. After nap, I had a little more of their work to grade. Then I cut up a popo and put it away in the fridge. Looked over lessons for tomorrow. Prepared veggies (carrots and uxai) for dinner and made a pizza. While supper was cooking, I put some math work on the chalkboard for tomorrow’s class.
It was after 6:00 before we had supper this evening, but that was fine since we had had a late lunch.
“Be ye therefore merciful, as your Father also is merciful.” Luke 6:36
January 21. Amos preached from Acts 13:4-12 this morning, talking about going out and preaching the Gospel, perhaps taking some younger men along to help you and to teach them how to do God’s work, standing strong in the work even though there is resistance.
Started school around 8:30 which gave us a good amount of extra time to finish up some things in our reading workbook and do most of the next phonics lesson. We only had two other classes after that - math and English. It was nice to have a bit earlier lunch and nap today. Sunny stayed a few minutes after school and fixed greens for us.
After nap, I enjoyed sitting outside in the sunshine for a while, although sometimes the sun ran away and hid behind some clouds. Wanted to take advantage of the nice weather while it was here, but had lots of work to do so took math papers out to grade. When I came back in, I graded the English lessons. Then I looked over lessons for tomorrow, rewashed the chalkboard, changed the job chart, put a pot of rice and soup beans on to cook and cooked the greens, made brownies for Daddy, started writing things on the chalkboard for tomorrow, had supper, wrote more things on the chalkboard, wrote a few e-mails.
Only a small group of youth are here this evening for youth meeting.
“Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again.” Luke 6:38
