Well, the kids have been back from their holiday and in school for one week. They are enjoying seeing each other and being back to their comfort in the village. Friends and food says a lot. School kicked off on Monday with the addition of 2 new teachers to replace 2 that are no longer here. The children were dressed in uniform and ready to go. We opened them with devotions, they said the pledges and sang a few songs including the national anthem. It was a nice morning and we are proud of the study they are doing and the work that the teachers put into their education.
Sports day already started and we found out the morning of the sports event. We still did not have vehicles to come to get all the kids so many started by foot as the vehicles made it back and forth to get them where they were in route. The girls played net ball (for the first time in competition), boys and girls soccer and were supposed to also play basketball but the other school did not have a team. They also practiced for volley ball but did not compete here this time. We tied in net ball, won girls soccer and lost boys soccer. Guess the boys should learn from the girls
The weather has turned cool in the evening, night and morning. The days are pleasant. I guess we would call this sweater or sweatshirt weather. The flowers and the sky is just beautiful. God’s creation is evident everywhere!!!
AND… the water is going down, down, down!!!!! The flood is OVER for another year!!!! Praise, Praise!!!!!!!
The boat can get it’s well deserved rest and it will not take us 8 hours to get groceries – going out in the boat, getting to the car, loading the car, unloading into the boat, parking the car and walking back because the boat is too heavy with groceries!! 8 hours reduced to 4 or 5!!! BIG!!!!! The water is not even running over the bridge!!!
…but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. Isaiah 40:31
