Packing

We have spent the last two days packing which is not my favorite thing to do. You would think we would be great at it since we have done it so many times over our 10 years of marriage, but it still isn’t much fun. (Truth be told, Joseph is great at it–I am not.) While…

Sylvie’s Perspective

“Oh good, they are distracted taking a picture…I think I can snag some cheerios” “Why does that crazy lady have her hand in my mouth? But check out my new tooth!” “Ah, that’s better…keep your hands out mama!” “My big sister is so fun!” “You can’t keep me pinned up for long!” “I wonder how…

This and That

We have had an especially busy week so far and want to update you all on a few things. So, here they are: Bible Study I met with the guys on Monday, as usual, and it went really well. I reviewed the basic points of the gospel thoroughly and asked a bunch of questions to…

Food Container

  This weekend a container full of food arrived from the U.S.! Yay! It is so exciting to get a new load of American food. Since there isn’t a lot available in town, the store on our base orders stuff from America to give us more options. The shelves have been pretty skimpy since we…

Lapilo Lesson #16

  This is Mokame–the second of the two ladies who have been attending our Bible Study. Friday we reached the end of our story. After reviewing previous lessons, I read Romans 3:10-20 to remind them all of our sin problem and the inability of obedience to the law (or other behavior) to make us right.…

Lapilo Lesson #15

This is Balux. More on him at the end. Yesterday was not a work day here in the commonwealth where we were celebrating the Queen’s birthday, so we met today (Tuesday) instead. We talked about Jesus’ teaching working through the following points: Jesus preached repentance (Mark 1:14-15) Sinful actions are a result of our sinfulness (Mark…

Lapilo Lesson Intermission

  This is Gosalakame, one of the two ladies who work with COC and come to our Bible study. They have been coming more frequently over the last few weeks after only showing up intermittently initially. I’m glad that they are showing up (even if it is only to drink coffee and eat Elizabeth’s banana…

Skate Night

Here at Lapilo, the Junior class at the school is always raising money to go on a big trip when they are seniors. They do a lot of different things like selling fresh squeezed lemon juice or tortillas and hosting events throughout the year. One of the big events they do is called skate night.…

Lapigosa

Our local rugby team got new uniforms and asked me to take a team picture. It turned into six team pictures and seventeen individual ones, but who’s counting. I turned one of them into what you see above just for fun. I’ll see tomorrow how some of them like it. Three of these guys work…
