I am just going to send out a bunch of photos to show you a few highlights of my October 2018.
I love sharing in the role of teaching Stories of Hope at Vineyard Christian school. On Wednesday afternoons it's exciting to see all the staff pull together to make sure that Bible Class is a treasure for the week. Students are excited about their own books.
I'm grateful to be partnering with OneHope as they provide amazing Bible curriculum for the children of Uganda..
I am also teaching the "17 Stories" during devotions at Stars of Hope Nursery School.
David was packing a picnic lunch to take to his brothers who were fighting in the Israelite army.
Little David refused King Saul's heavy armor. (Kids were delighted though!!)
I don't want to tell you next week's story - it's super exciting... but I will tell you that:
The Lord is God! Yes, the Lord is God!!
I was privileged to go with a friend and deacon of the main PAG church, to share with the youth in his home church in Kalaki village.
Tom hosted very well and I pray that the youth will truly know that God has a plan for their lives and that HE sees their hardships, but will never let go of them.
Another day I was able to host all of these P7 PLE candidates (in other words, elementary grads) for an afternoon of fellowship and encouragement.
I did well with some one-time honey business!! I sold enough honey to pay for the 2 jerry cans of honey and I am still eating some at home. :) Yum Yum.
My friend Peter JJ was sizing a dress that my dear Tata (grandma) gave to me as a random gift.
Still crafting with kids and schools.
I was blessed with huge spools of weaving thread - so let the crafts continue!
Visiting my Indian friends in their home behind one of my favourite supermarkets. They are so hospitable. Praying God's truth will be grasped in their lives.
Speaking of hospitality - I decided to have a few friends over for Canadian Thanksgiving.
It was a great evening of snacks, a meal, cards and sweet fellowship.
A few of the ladies who come to my discipleship Bible study group have also gotten into the spirit of crafting with me... all rubbish has become potential in my realms now days. :)
Painting and cloth wrapping glass bottles.
I almost don't want to admit this... but I hadn't been sleeping well... so I moved to a friends house, and washed all my clothes and bedding from there... and fumigated my room... and well, now, I'm sleeping peacefully once again. I do believe I had a colony of tiny ants move in that were greatly disturbing my sleep.
Another one of my new art projects.
"Let us never stop encouraging one another..." being with our friend Jesca after she lost the baby during delivery.
I have found a great space above my upper cupboards to host my craft project.
Mom and Dad blessed me with a few treasures sent through a friend returning to Uganda. I'm so glad that valuable luggage space was found to love on me. :)
I love this Bird of Paradise... so colourful.
A trip to Kampala meant canned cherries... red cabbage... and other yummy eats that are hard or impossible to get in Soroti.
Over the years I have been working on a Noah's Ark collection and I just added to sweet owls that are actually family heirlooms. Yeah.
A new baby was born to our compound the other night... we are 7 apartment... 3 of which are occupied by singles, but the other 4 flats have managed to get us to 17 children running around.
Here's another shot of the PLE candidates who received a surprise visit to my house to watch a movie, eat snacks, and be encouraged for their finals.
I pray that their FAITH will be strong in the days, weeks, and years to come.
