Well, I needed eggs for baking, so I decided to bike to town. I stopped at a few places. The bank, Peter's tailoring shop to pick up some more sewing, and OM Supermarket. As I was hopping off my bike at OM my foot twisted on uneven ground and I dumped myself in the gutter, with my bike on top of me. Ah Yi Yi!! Embarrassing more than anything. I quickly got up, brushed off the mud (and didn't realize I had cut my shin until a half hour later). Everyone at OM was concerned about me... so when I bought my eggs and a roll of candy, they gave them to me for free. Yeah!! I was starting to feel better already.
Then, this afternoon I went to go check up on some friends of mine. I visited two blind ladies and made an appointment to meet with their whole group on Friday... I want to help them with their knitting crafts. Then I went to visit two other friends, Carol and Susan, who really need some encouragement. (I invited them over for shepherd's pie for tomorrow - we'll see what they think.)
When I got home I found the sweetest note on my table, on top of a bunch of fresh bananas. It read: Dear Aunt Karen
A small gift for you just to say;
thank you for loving me
thank you for giving me clothes
thank you for visiting me always
and I love you too.
Wow, so precious, especially since she is only two months old!!
So, I have had a full weekend. On Sunday I had to teach close to three hundred children at a "General Assembly" service. Thankfully I didn't have to teach the children the whole day, just the first two hours. We started off by singing and playing games outside, and then I did a super fun story with Rahab and the Walls of Jericho. I tied a red sheet to the window of the classroom, and walked around the front with a huge cows horn... blowing my head off. So much fun and the kids loved it. I think the teachers from five other churches also found it interesting!
This is one of the sweetest boys in my class. He always smiles and draws some of the best pictures. I sometimes worry about his future because I don't know how advanced Soroti is on skin grafting, but he seems to be dealing with his burns just fine.
