It's kind of fun, having early morning wake ups with outdoor dogs at the bedroom door and/or children screaming and searching for big black ants in their beds - which turn out to be the corner of the pillowcase. After making sure that medications, breakfasts, daily events are planned, I also jump back into ministry. Last week I taught every afternoon at a local child sponsorship program.
The curriculum was Understanding True Love / Sexual Purity with P7 students.
I always love tag teaming with my junior discipler - Teddy
and energetic - Peter
This was the first time I have completely taught this curriculum and it was exciting, rewarding, and challenging for both me and the participants.
It's not a topic that teens talk about easily, but it is such a necessity!!
I love it that God truly does have the perfect design for my life!
Day one was a little awkward, but day 5 had great discussion and I think some clear understanding, or at least a little more of a challenge to date wisely.
Celebrating with the class!
Throughout the week, various team-mates would invite us over for dinner... and us being the Tiesenga kids and me... or find ways to help me out with being a full-time mom while Steve and Tanya spend time getting medical care in Nairobi.
Ronnie makes the best mash and chicken for these kids.
If I wasn't busy enough, I also booked two morning trainings for Sunday school curriculum. To be honest, these days put a smile on my face. I love sharing God's Word and creative story telling methods to new teachers.
This adorable thing is one of my alarm clocks in the mornings...
And apparently Santa can appear long before Christmas. Ho HO HOOOO!
Today, dear Kate was "bored" and needed some extra time, so I gave up my feet to be with her. :)
She was very intent on creating a masterpiece!
The many layers took hours to dry!! I'm not sure who wins... her sister also did a great job painting my finger nails. A rare treat for me.
It's not certain, but motherhood may end on Friday for me. Oh, I'm going to miss this fast paced life.
