August 26. Amos finished chapter 19 of Acts this morning, emphasizing the importance of just preaching the Gospel and letting the Gospel change people’s lives. It isn’t our responsibility to make people change. For those who truly become new creatures in Christ, old things will pass away and all things will become new.
It was a shorter school day since there is no more math class. We did two phonics/ reading classes and then English class and were finished by 12:00.
I was thankful to have some time to get out in the sunshine this afternoon when the wind wasn’t blowing too strongly. My, how dry everything is getting!
I had just written an e-mail yesterday evening to CH telling her that we still have enough water here, and suddenly there was no water. We didn’t know what had happened until this morning. Apparently there was a big leak in the pipe at the top of the airstrip. Tomas and Phinehas had taken the pipe apart to fix it, but it got too dark and they didn’t finish. So they just left it. Then someone stole that rubber that was used to tie the two parts of the pipe together. This morning Nana came and fixed it, and water was back around mid-morning. Praise the Lord for water!
Youth have been here practicing songs this evening to sing during the special meetings.
“11For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God. 12So then every one of us shall give account of himself to God.” Romans 14:11,12
