More rain during the night. Another 1.5” by morning. Had a bit more sunshine this morning, but rain again this afternoon.
Yesterday evening, we worked together starting to outline the book of Acts. Daddy will use the outlines for teaching any men who want further teaching after the present Bible school courses. After that, we finished our game of dominoes.
This morning, we worked more on outlining Acts chapter 1. Then I played keyboard and worked a bit on the computer before lotu.
Daddy finished the book of I John this morning, verses 16-21 — four things God wants us to KNOW. Nuxawai translated for him, but had a hard time. Devit had charge of the singing. Praise God for nine people who responded to the invitation, including a couple of the teenage boys. Ben preached the second meeting. Luke had charge of the singing at the beginning of the second meeting.
This afternoon, we met with the youth pastor and leaders and wives and game leader. Ben sounds like he is getting a bad cold, but we are glad he came. It was a good meeting, as it helped them to understand the reason for having teams and competition. Erik said that the youth had asked why they have teams, and why that can’t just be one big group. We were glad to get some feedback and will have to explain to the youth group as a whole also.
Gibson came by a little while ago to get kerosene. I asked him about Taro, as I didn’t see her in church, and Serah had said earlier this week that she is sick. He said she is still sick. Has pains in her abdomen, is weak, and not eating well. The doctors gave her some medicine, but that made her feel worse. Gave him some bullion cubes for her to try.
Not much rain last night. By morning, the river had gone down enough for people to cross. So there was quite an exodus of men and a few women today, on their way to town for graduation and to bring back the younger school children for the holidays.
Daddy and I started studying the last half of Acts 1 this morning, the choosing of a man to take Judas’s apostleship. There were lots of interruptions as people came and went for one thing or another. We did manage to get through verse 20. We praise the Lord for His help checking the rest of Mark 12 this morning. After that, I opened the Dell computer to make last weeks corrections of Owena Romans in it, and discovered that the last of the Microsoft Office allowances had been used up. So I was not able to do any work. That means Devit and Jokapet can’t use it either, until we get Microsoft Office activated. So then I went to the Acer, put the Owena Romans file back in it, and made the corrections there. Also took care of the corrections for the rest of Mark 12.
Later more people came. Wan came by and tried to take care of that laundry room leak again. But there is still something somewhere that is not meeting his eye. Daddy sent him up to patch up the skylight on the church roof too. Devit came to work on Timothy. Matthew has completed translating through II Timothy 2 now. Had to transfer the Timothy file back to this computer too.
Serah finished working a little before 11:30.
We got out the other Dell computer to see if we could use it for now. However the tool boxes and everything are so small and have such small print, I could hardly see them. Both Daddy and I worked at it a while to see if we could get them bigger, but we couldn’t figure out how to do it. After that, I started lunch. Made some dumplings to go in the rest of the soup.
Didn’t sleep very long at nap time. Got up and started working on the newsletter. Then Daddy turned on the generator so I could print out the notes he needs for youth bung tomorrow. So I scanned in the piggy puzzle while the generator was on so I could finished up the kidznewzletter. Then worked more on the other newsletter.
Cut up the little popo. Daddy ate half, and I cooked the other half for myself. I was going to play the keyboard after that, but got caught up writing songs. That was okay. Played the keyboard about 20 minutes before getting supper.
