June 23. When we went to bed last night, the sky was clear with lots of stars so we expected it to be pretty chilly this morning. It was still the same when I got up at 1:00. At 4:30, however, it was all clouded over, and I even heard some rain a bit later. The world was all fogged in when we got up. Matthew and Erisapet were here not long after 7:00 this morning for lotu. A little bit later Amos’s family came and soon Amos came too. Amos was in charge today. His text was Matthew 6:9-13, the Lord’s Prayer, and he brought out different things we could say when we pray. He did a good job.
After lotu, Steve stayed and read his fourth Owena primer. He did very well and breathed a sigh of relief when he was done.
After that, I did laundry. Elijah and Sera and Gloria were here, and I picked out a dress for Gloria and gave her a little hard page picture book too. By the time I started laundry, the sun was shining. It was around 10:15 before laundry was all washed and hung out to dry. It felt really good to get out in the sunshine this morning.
Jonas Yamahvi came and cut firewood.
I had Daddy cut up a pumpkin for dinner since I got stomach cramps from the hard peas and corn yesterday. The pumpkin was really hard to cut and peel. It was really tough. It must have been in the garden for a while. It didn’t taste really good either, and was hard and dry even after being cooked. I felt really uncomfortable again after dinner and decided that part of it was the veggies and part because of the potatoes and yams — just seem to have a hard time with root veggies anymore. So I guess I’ll survive on rice, noodles, and bread type foods.
While I was cleaning up the dinner table and putting away food, Daddy went out and brought the clothes in. We both had a fairly long nap. After nap, I washed the chalkboard and swept and mopped the meeting room floor. Daddy worked on the plumbing for Connie’s bathroom sink. We are grateful for Philip’s getting us some parts for that in Hagen.
After doing the cleaning, I worked on getting school materials together for next week. Then Graham came to read and did an excellent job. Then we had supper, and I did dishes. And then I wrote toksaves and did some scanning, photo copying, and printing. Found out that the Canon printer is working from this computer now. However, it still tells me that the MP Navigator (the scanner) is not installed. So we need to figure out how to get that working.
“10For he that is entered into his rest, he also hath ceased from his own works, as God did from his. 11Let us labour therefore to enter into that rest, lest any man fall after the same example of unbelief.” Hebrews 4:10,11
June 24. Even though it was cloudy last night, it still got down to 53º by morning. There was cloud cover part of the morning, and then the sun came out. After breakfast and quiet time, I got yesterday’s laundry folded and put away. Then I worked on Owena language lessons until lotu time. People came at a good time today which was a blessing. I was happy to see Taina here today. Tania came too, but left Maura at home with the baby. Tania needs the joy of the Lord in her life.
Daddy finished the book of Romans today in the two meetings, and then summed up each chapter.
I really zonked out at nap today. Finally extracted myself from the bed around 3:30. Got a few e-mails ready to send out this evening. Worked more on the Owena language lessons. Fixed supper. Ate. Did dishes. Did some printing. Made corrections in the next soul-winning lesson. Wrote answers on the chalkboard for the soul-winning lesson when people were here for class.
There was a good group here this evening for soul-winning class. Maura was here this evening. They nearly finished the lesson on Lot so will be ready for a new lesson next week. Eric said that Esau is wanting to stay and go to school here so he will come tomorrow and see how things go. He was in sixth grade in town, but don’t know how well he was doing in school or what level he is on. I guess time will tell. I told Eric that it would be fine for Esau to come to school as long as he doesn’t mind being on the same level as the others.
“12For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. 13Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in his sight: but all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of him with whom we have to do.” Hebrews 4:12,13
