July 14. Not quite as chilly during the night or this morning. The fog rose quickly, and soon the sun was shining.
Made wheat pancakes for Daddy’s breakfast and rice pancakes for my own. After breakfast and quiet time, I cleaned everything out of the freezer. Put all the bread, cheese, and butter into a big bag to send with Janeth and Kelly down to the haus sik freezer. Then I got gift bags ready for our elderly members. After that, it was time to sit down a while. Spent a little time working on notes in the Daniel study until time for lotu.
Even though it was a nice morning, people were late. It was almost 10:30 when lotu started. The song leader was very late so Daddy finally told Mike to lead the songs. He was scheduled for the second service. Then David, who was scheduled for first service, led songs during the second service. It was a blessing to see Mandah and her mother here for the meetings today – the first time they have ever come, and they stayed for both meetings. It has been a long time since we have even seen them. We don’t know why they came here, but we are glad they did.
Tomas translated for the first meeting. Amos was scheduled for the second, but he has a cold so Mathew took his place. Daddy preached today on verses 1-11 of 1 Corinthians 15.
After our dinner, Daddy rested a bit in the recliner; and I went ahead and lay down for my nap. Figured I would be up in time for the preaching in the second meeting. When I got up, however, they were still singing. They had gotten a late start.
After lotu, Daddy had a short nap, and I swept the schoolroom, rearranged the seating, got books put back on the shelves, unlocked the cupboard, and moved some things around on the bulletin boards. Then I got supper.
After supper, I got things together for tomorrow’s classes. I had planned to put material on the chalkboard for the students to copy in place of their math worksheet. However, this lesson’s worksheet is a clock page. So we checked the voltage and wattage on the Canon printer and found out that we can run it off the inverter. So Daddy helped me move the Canon over to the other table where we could plug it in, and I was able to photo copy the clock page for tomorrow and one for Thursday. After that, I did the dishes.
“Or despisest thou the riches of his goodness and forbearance and longsuffering; not knowing that the goodness of God leadeth thee to repentance?” Romans 2:4
July 15. I was awake at 5:45 this morning so went ahead and got up. Had my morning drinks, leftover pancakes for breakfast, quiet time and walking time. Got the bed made put a few eggs on to boil for egg salad sandwiches, and then worked on the Bible school lessons to get the students’ copies ready for printing whenever Daddy needs them and whenever the generator comes back.
Today was the first day of the third term of school, scheduled to start at 8:00. At 7:59, there was still nobody here. I closed down the computer and got ready to go to class. A couple minutes after 8:00, two students came in - Bethuel and Steve. So the three of us started school. We had already prayed, talked a bit, and started going over the schedule for the term before anyone else came. It was about 8:30 before we finished going over the schedule and talking about things we would be doing this term. Then we started learning the books of the Old Testament, starting today with the books of Moses.
I was thankful that we finished everything by noon today. That way we could have an earlier lunch and earlier nap. For dinner, we finished up the popo crisp. It wouldn’t have been good for another day.
After nap, there was grading to do, lessons to get ready for tomorrow, and some lesson material to write on the chalkboard. I also looked through the picture files to try to find a chair lift, but didn’t find one. “Chair lift” is mentioned in their new social studies lesson which we’ll be starting tomorrow. I guess I’ll have to try to draw a picture.
By then it was supper time and then time to do dishes.
“19Now we know that what things soever the law saith, it saith to them who are under the law: that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may become guilty before God. 20Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight: for by the law is the knowledge of sin.” Romans 3:19,20
