A little rain last evening, but none during the night as far as we can tell. It rained a little bit today, but not very much.
Daddy and I finished up the study notes on Acts 1 this morning. Serah came around 7:30 this morning to start work. Got everything done before youth meeting. Not very many at youth meeting today. Some have gone to town.
The plane came just after the meeting got started. Brought Nuanda and Daniel and five other passengers back from town with a plane load of goods.
Before the teaching, Daddy explained to the youth why there are teams and competition. Otherwise Devit took charge of the meeting. He did a really good job.
When I came back from youth meeting, the weather was very humid, and the house was very stuffy. I went around and opened all the windows in all the rooms. Worked on the computer a while before getting dinner. Fixed rice with tuna and onion/butter mushroom sauce. Also had pumpkin.
Wan and Ari worked more on the addition this afternoon. They are starting to get the poles up for the walls now. Daddy and I worked on checking Mark this afternoon. Finished the first 13 verses of chapter 13. Thank the Lord for His help. Then David came and finished getting 1 Timoti 5 into the file. I cut up the two popo and made popo crisp, as both popo were starting to go bad. Didn’t want them to spoil all together like that one did the other day. Then I worked on Christy & Connie’s letter until I got tired at the computer. Played keyboard a while before supper.
When I went to the cupboard to get the bread out for supper, I said, “Oh, oh.” Neither Daddy nor I had remembered that I was supposed to make bread today. When Daddy came back in, I was making biscuits. I asked him if he knew the story of Mother Hubbard. He said he didn’t so I told him, “It goes something like this:
Old Mother Hubbard went to the cupboard
To get her poor husband some bread,
When she got there, the cupboard was bare,
And so she made biscuits instead.”☺
It is now 9:00 p.m. Epekio and Serah just left after their third crochet class.
Epekio seems to pick things up pretty quickly. She is doing well. Serah is doing okay, but has a funny way of holding the hook and wrapping the yarn around her finger. Oh well, it seems to work for her. Tonight they learned double crochet. So they will practice that until we get back from town. Then we’ll see if they are ready to start on something bigger.
It was raining this morning when Serah came to work at 7:30. It didn’t look like a very good morning. By the time she was done washing the clothes, however, the sun was shining so she was able to hang them outside. We were thankful for that blessing, and the rest of the day turned out to be beautiful weather. There was clear blue sky and fluffy clouds this afternoon. It was a bit too hot in the house, but nice outside. Seemed a bit humid so there is probably more rain on the way.
I worked on getting Acts outline into a file while Serah was doing laundry. Then we went to lotu.
We got back to the house a little after 10:00. Serah finished work a little before 11:30. Then we had a short Bible study, starting a study in the book of Acts.
Devit came around 10:30 and worked on getting 1 Timoti 6 into the file. He worked until we were ready for nap. I was enjoying a really nice nap, when Father Hubbard came and woke me up. Yes, we had forgotten again about making bread. So Mother Hubbard managed to crawl away from nap and get the bread going. After that we worked on checking Mark and finished chapter 13. Thank you, Lord, for your help.
Then we went outside for a little fresh air. Tema came by and we talked with her a while. Then Devit came so we could show him some indoor games, in case the weather is bad, and they can’t play outside next youth meeting. Erik is gone to town so we couldn’t show him the games. So Devit will show him later.
Daddy went to bed around 9:00 last night. No rain last night, and there was moonlight. A lovely day today.
Daddy and I worked more on outlining Acts 2 this morning. It is a blessing to study the word together.
After Daddy left for Bible school, I was able to be refreshed with prayer time and studying the ladies’ meeting lesson again for Friday night. When Serah and Jokapet came, I had Jokapet use the other Dell computer this morning and type Pilemon’s letter so I could work on this computer. I worked today on the Acts outline and on phase 1 outline. After Jokapet finished typing, I had her make colored circles on the pieces of cardboard for the youth “Painim Rot” game. Serah finished working about the same time Jokapet did, so had Bible study with both of them. Covered verse 9-14 of Acts 1. While we were studying, Daddy came up from downstairs with one of the glue traps and four small rats on it. He had been hearing rats crying for a couple nights and thought there were babies in the wall in our bedroom. But the past two nights he didn’t hear them anymore. Yesterday when I was making the bed, I thought I smelled something dead. But then I forgot about it and hadn’t told Daddy. The rats were already starting to stink. He must have heard them crying after they got stuck in the trap.
Devit came and finished getting 1 Timoti 6 in the computer.
Wan, Poqo, Ari, Junias, and Toni worked on the addition today. Got one whole wall frame up and most of another. Praise the Lord for the good progress that has been made. Maybe the room will be ready to use by the first of the year. Daddy got his trousers caught on a nail when he was out there helping today and made a long tear down one leg. So that is the end of those trousers.
