February 17. More rain during the night last night, but not as hard as the night before. Mostly cloudy today, but very warm and humid.
Some of the students really had a hard time today in math (especially on their speed drill) and in English. I’m afraid some of them are going to be left behind in the dust. I really need another teacher to work with the slower students. We didn’t do science today - instead I gave them extra time for math and English.
Please pray that God will give understanding to the students who are having a hard time in math. Math can be hard for some people to grasp.
There was a LOT of work to grade today, and I was thankful that math was not one of them because it always takes a long time to grade math. I got a lot of it done in class and finished the rest after nap. Also put work on the chalkboard for tomorrow.
Sunny came this evening before Bible school to practice computer. I let her use the Acer because I had work to do on this one. Am thankful to have gotten the newsletter finished and ready to go out. Will let Daddy send it from town as it is too big to send from here.

February 18. During the middle of Bible school last night, it started raining. Then harder, and harder, and harder, until Daddy couldn’t teach because nobody could hear. They took a break to see if the rain would stop; but by the time it stopped, it was too late to resume class. So they had prayer and everyone went home. Rained more during the night also.
Amos covered the first six chapters of Acts 14 this morning in lotu.
It was a busy morning in school. When I wasn’t teaching, I was grading papers. Still had papers to grade after nap today and then work to put on the chalkboard. It was 5:20 before I finished work in the schoolroom. Shortly before that Daddy reminded me that I didn’t have any tortillas left. Didn’t have time to make them either so just made a small batch of biscuits. It was a little after 6:00 before we finally sat down for supper. Bethuel and Phinehas were here for a while studying while I was working in the schoolroom.
After supper I had to proofread the new Bible lesson, make corrections, and then fix and print out copies for the students. The printer was somewhat of a pain too so it was late before I finished the printing. Then I remembered that I still needed to do the dishes. When the water was hot, I got them started; and Daddy finished them for me while I put the new Bible lessons in the students’ notebooks. Dallas was here studying this evening.
Daddy called MAF today, and the only time they can come get him to take him to town is this Friday. That means he would have to be there over the weekend. He is supposed to call back tomorrow to see if there are any changes.
A young man came this morning to get Daddy to bandage up his arm, which was cut across the wrist. This evening he came back to see if Daddy could sew it up because it is still bleeding. Daddy does not know how to suture so the young man wanted some used batteries so he could walk to Okapa.
