Wife of Joka, she hasn’t come to anything we’ve done until now. She’s been at the study at Terry’s house the last two weeks and is really into it. Pray for her.
Today another child was buried. This is the grave with Joka, the grave digger, on the right and Tomas, the father, sitting above it. Tomas is the man from our post “Chipping Away” who said he wanted me to come and teach their group some time. Pray for them.
This is Ken, a young husband and father who lives across the river. He didn’t attend our teaching, but has been coming to our church meetings. Api has taken it upon himself to meet daily with Ken and his family to walk them through the gospel. We are excited for Ken to hear and thrilled about Api’s enthusiasm–God is clearly doing a mighty work in and through him.
I had a great conversation about the gospel with Terry and some of his family today. From this group, only Terry attended our lessons back in the spring. It’s exciting to see new believers like Terry wanting others to hear the truth they are believing.
Our big river has lots of tributaries. Yesterday the kids got explore one they’ve never seen before.
There’s not much happening in Menya so a “court” about who is responsible for the sorcery that killed an elderly man draws a crowd.
Last day in town. Ice-cream in cones!
After 7.5 months in Menya, I was ready for a change of pace. This is just the right pace.
Api (who has rocketed into my top 5 favorite Menyans) asked me yesterday if he and his wife, Tema, could come over so I could teach them something. So we had them for dinner by the fire tonight. Food menu: potatoes and greens; spiritual menu: grace and faith.
