Last night when we went to bed, we could hear some crying down in the village, Wanyapeq direction. This morning, Devit came to tell us that they got a phone call last night, saying that Silvia’s father had died. So they left today to go to Gimi to be with Silvia’s family. (Found out from Silvia this morning that her father had died just like Tema – within 24 hours time.)
The school kids played inside today for recess between lotu and first Wednesday class. It was misting outside after lotu, and the ground was much too wet this morning. Five of the boys said their new verse already today. They just started learning it yesterday. This verse was not as long and was a bit easier pattern to memorize. Several others tried and almost got it. So maybe tomorrow.
"I know that my Redeemer liveth." Job 19:25 “A living Redeemer, truly mine, is joy unspeakable.” —Morning and Evening
April 22. About .6” rain last night.
Daddy has been trying to make bookings for us to go to town in a couple weeks, but has not been able to get in touch with MAF.
Nuanda was supposed to go out next week for health meetings in Morseby, and was hoping to spend some time with his kids, too. But Kathrin said she can’t get a booking for him so Kelly will go in his place.
"Him hath God exalted." Acts 5:31
Jesus, our Lord, once crucified, dead and buried, now sits upon the throne of glory. The highest place that heaven affords is His by undisputed right. It is sweet to remember that the exaltation of Christ in heaven is a representative exaltation. He is exalted at the Father's right hand, and though as Jehovah He had eminent glories, in which finite creatures cannot share, yet as the Mediator, the honours which Jesus wears in heaven are the heritage of all the saints. It is delightful to reflect how close is Christ's union with His people. We are actually one with Him; we are members of His body; and His exaltation is our exaltation. He will give us to sit upon His throne, even as He has overcome, and is set down with His Father on His throne; He has a crown, and He gives us crowns too; He has a throne, but He is not content with having a throne to Himself, on His right hand there must be His queen, arrayed in "gold of Ophir." He cannot be glorified without His bride. Look up, believer, to Jesus now; let the eye of your faith behold Him with many crowns upon His head; and remember that you will one day be like Him, when you shall see Him as He is; you shall not be so great as He is, you shall not be so divine, but still you shall, in a measure, share the same honours, and enjoy the same happiness and the same dignity which He possesses. Be content to live unknown for a little while, and to walk your weary way through the fields of poverty, or up the hills of affliction; for by-and-by you shall reign with Christ, for He has "made us kings and priests unto God, and we shall reign for ever and ever." Oh!, wonderful thought for the children of God! We have Christ for our glorious representative in heaven's courts now, and soon He will come and receive us to Himself, to be with Him there, to behold His glory, and to share His joy. —Morning and Evening
