We spent the first part of the school morning learning a little bit about music and practicing the new song “Imanyuel I Kam Daun.” Then we practiced all our verses and songs again. Finished a little bit early and started English class a little earlier. Today we finished up lesson 18 in English - reread the lesson in the reader, did the pages in the reading workbook, and did the worksheet. They had fun drawing green frogs in the grass. It was a green picture. That was our last English class for the year.
After recess, we looked at Bonita’s stones (I need a stone expert to help determine what kinds of stones they have). Then we did some more of unit three in their science book.
After school, Bonita and Sunny shelled corn, husked corn, husked uxai, folded clothes, and swept the floor while we had dinner. Then Sunny said her verses for the term.
When they left, we had our nap. Afterward, I cut up another big popo, and we had some for snack. The rest is in the fridge. Then I practiced playing the songs that the choir will be singing for the New Year meetings.
Worked on a soul-winning lesson for a while before supper. This evening, we need to try out the projector and see how things are going to work for showing the video on Friday.
“18Hear ye therefore the parable of the sower. 19When any one heareth the word of the kingdom, and understandeth it not, then cometh the wicked one, and catcheth away that which was sown in his heart. This is he which received seed by the way side. 20But he that received the seed into stony places, the same is he that heareth the word, and anon with joy receiveth it; 21Yet hath he not root in himself, but dureth for a while: for when tribulation or persecution ariseth because of the word, by and by he is offended. 22He also that received seed among the thorns is he that heareth the word; and the care of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, choke the word, and he becometh unfruitful. 23But he that received seed into the good ground is he that heareth the word, and understandeth it; which also beareth fruit, and bringeth forth, some an hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty.” Matthew 13:18-23
October 30. A little rain before sunup this morning, but the Lord gave us a lovely, sunny day. Breakfast was granola with bananas. There was plenty of time after quiet time to walk and pray. Then I worked on the soul-winning lesson until school time.
The students wanted to do their science lesson first so we did that. Took a short break and then practiced for the program on Friday. Had recess. Spent the rest of the morning making signs and decorations for Friday.
Had a longer nap than planned because of interruptions. The rest of the afternoon, I worked on the soul-winning lesson and finished that up. Also made sure the program schedule for Friday was all in order so I could print that out this evening. Got the refreshments ready for tomorrow’s school fun day. In the mean time, SIL landed here, and Daddy went up to talk to the pilots.
After supper and dishes, I went out and burned the trash. Then I made sure I had everything together for the games tomorrow. Practiced the choir songs for the New Year meetings before having a bath.
“37He answered and said unto them, He that soweth the good seed is the Son of man; 38The field is the world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked one; 39The enemy that sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the end of the world; and the reapers are the angels. 40As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire; so shall it be in the end of this world. 41The Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity; 42And shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth. 43Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.” Matthew 13:37-43
