October 14. It is 6:30 p.m. It has been raining steadily, with thunder and lightning, for over 1 1/2 hours now. We thank the Lord for a lovely morning. I was up early and got pancakes made — wheat pancakes for Daddy and rice pancakes for myself. Made the bed while my pancakes were cooking. Then I had my breakfast and read my Bible. It was such a nice morning, I decided to go out in the sunshine and walk around and pray. I remarked when I went out how dry the ground was and that we needed rain. The Lord sent the rain this evening.
After I came back inside, I finished up the quarterly newsletter and started getting journal notes ready to send to Christy and Connie. Then I wrote an e-mail and tried to send it. The Digicel box said there were two bars, and it said it was connecting; but it would never finish connecting. We will try again this evening if the rain lets up.
People came early this morning. There was a good group here, including a number of visitors. Daddy gave Matthew time to finish up his talk on John chapter 3.
Mata had cooked food for everybody so they all had a meal in between meetings while we had our dinner. It was good to see Penina here today for the first time in many months. Apekio was not here — is sick with a bad cold. And Esau was out sick too. Betty went home sick after the first meeting. Janeth and Kelly were here today. Oh, that they would get saved! And the new medical worker (male) came also.
Daddy preached the second meeting, continuing with I Corinthians, chapter 1 verses 4-9. It was after 2:30 when we went for nap, and we slept about an hour. Afterward I got things together for school tomorrow. By then it was just about supper time. While I was doing dishes, I suddenly had an “oh-no” thought – we were supposed to have called Christy and Connie yesterday morning.
We are supposed to resume soul-winning classes this evening so we’ll see how many come in this rainy weather.
