January 25. Some sunshine this morning, but quite a few clouds today. It is about 7:15 p.m. now, and it just started raining. Daddy is teaching soul-winning class this evening.
After breakfast and quiet time this morning, Daddy turned on the generator for a while, and I worked on math review lessons. After the generator was turned off, I marked and recorded grades for the math papers that Graham and Sunny checked for me yesterday evening.
It was nearly 10:30 before lotu started. Silvia was here today with their lovely new baby. Matthew preached this morning from Galatians 4:1-7, talking about our adoption into God’s family. Between meetings, we met with the youth.
Please pray about a matter involving the youth and the students of Glory Christian School. Pray that the young people will choose to do right. Thanks so much.
And here is another prayer request. After the youth left, Lilian stayed and wanted to share a burden with me and have me give her some Bible verses of encouragement. I was happy to do that.
Please pray for Lillian and the burden that is on her heart.
When we finished meeting with the youth, we had our lunch and nap. David preached this afternoon about the punishments that God gave Adam and Eve for their sin.
After nap, I looked over lessons for tomorrow, put the students’ math lessons back in their notebooks, and put a few things on the chalkboard. Then I prepared broccoli and carrots for supper and fixed spaghetti.
“And it came to pass afterward, that he went throughout every city and village, preaching and shewing the glad tidings of the kingdom of God: and the twelve were with him….” Luke 8:1
January 26. It was mostly cloudy all day today. Just a few minutes of sun here and there.
Phinehas was sick today. He came late to school and only stayed for about a half hour before going back home.
Part of our Bible class this morning actually turned into a sort of math class as the students divided out the lollipops, candies, paper clips, and pencils that Lonnie had sent. Thank you, Lonnie! For the candies, we looked to see how many servings were in a bag and how many candies in each serving. Then I let them figure out the total number of candies and how many would go to each student. The paper clip package had a total on the package so I let them determine how many each would get from that.
By the time we had lunch and nap, it was almost 3:30. I then looked over tomorrow’s lessons, wrote down some extra oral exercises for math, and wrote one exercise on the chalkboard. Worked for a while on the computer, making corrections on the next soul-winning lesson and starting to prepare the students’ copy. Then I started making tortillas, warmed up supper, ate, finished making the tortillas, and just finished cooking them.
Graham and Sunny are here again. They just finished washing dishes and now are grading today’s math lessons. Then they are going to scrub the boards on the office floor. Daddy took the linoleum up today because it was getting too torn up.
“And he answered and said unto them, My mother and my brethren are these which hear the word of God, and do it.” Luke 8:21
