Since the team left we have been so busy trying to get back into the swing into things.
We also got approved to have some (actually quite a bit) of work done on our house.
Then there is school. We need to finish this school year before we go back to the states next year. Even in the midst of everything going on right now, we are making good progress.
All three of our "guards" are working on the outside of our house. We also have two pastors from Quelimane (where we lived for language) helping inside the house.
Here are some of the things that have to/are getting done.
We have to replace the roof. Half of it is already done, they just have to finish the other half.
We are scraping the paint off of the whole house…then painting it.
Us three girls are moving down stairs so that we can make the
whole upstairs a guest house for when we have visitors.
We will be enclosing a porch to make a bedroom since there are only two small bedrooms downstairs. So the three guards have been working on that small project.
It might sound like not very much. But it is so a lot of work. Boy howdy, they are working all day long, sun up to sun down, to get this house done by a certain time.
Please pray that everyone will be safe while working and that they will be able to do everything in a timely manner.
Church is still the same. Some of the youth saved up their money and bought a keyboard.
We are very impressed by their talent in playing different instruments!
Mom is still singing with the women. She loves to do this every Sunday.
We still love our youth. They are so talented!
The kids that come to church love to watch Emma draw things.
She starts drawing anything and they will be mesmerized.
Here are some random things that I took a picture of when mom, dad, and
I went out to buy some things one day.
|This man had on real live TOMS!|
We were so surprised! They have those nock-off Toms here.
But to see that someone has real TOMS! Crazy!
|People sell lots of old used tires here.|
|This women had been selling food at lunch time in a market. |
She came out of the market with things on her head and in both hands! I could never do this!
|Here is a picture of a part of our city.|
|Here is a market that is close to our house.|
I hope to update the blog more regularly, but because school is taking up lots of my time…I might have to give my sisters and mom a turn! How does that sound?!?
