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.
He is clear on some points, but still seems to be having trouble putting it all together. I’ve talked to him a few times since we finished the lessons, but every time I have to cover the same ground again. Also, Rita is really worried because he hasn’t changed from his sinful ways overnight.
We love that Clara (one of our babysitters while we are home) is praying for Damatis and the Menya people.
This guy (or gal) measuring 7” from tip to tip started weaving its web right over our door. Do we get rid of it or cringe under it every pass so it can help with mosquito control?
We are getting the house in working order: adding rain water to the batteries on our solar electric system.
This week we walked around our neigborhood passing out New Year’s banana bread that Elizabeth baked.
