Cultivating The Seed

Lights have been out quite a bit. It seems to be on a schedule. One day lights are out all day for 8 to 9 hours. The following day we have lights during the day but then in the evening going off for about 4 hours. We have used our generator these last few weeks, more than we have this whole term. Being off for so long, we run the generator to get school done, and keep our refrigerator/freezer running. 

Our Mission Conference at Cornerstone was last week. It went well. I won't give any spoilers, I am sure my husband will post the events in his newsletter.

Twins: Tiltamus & Theophilus and brothers Jeff and Michael

Matthew has befriended Tiltamus (sp?) while playing football (soccer) on Saturdays, for the last couple of weeks. Usually after our visiting me, Naomi and mostly Nehemiah wanting to  head to the round about to watch the boys play. Nehemiah hoping to join in the game.Tiltamus came over and started talking to us. He said, he would come to church, last week, so I asked him why he didn't come? He said, "It wasn't me." I thought to myself, what? Then the kids around me began telling me, this is his twin brother, Theophilus. It was rather funny. Then we met their friends Jeff and Michael. They where talking to us for quite awhile. I began to witness to them. Matthew has been working on Tiltamus the last couple of weeks. I got a response from Michael that made me single him out. He said, "He was working on it." (salvation) About that time Pastor Prince met us at the round about. I said, maybe you would like to talk to Prince. Michael said, "I know him." I figured he knew him from just being around. So I continued talking to the boys and Prince called Michael to talk to him. About that time we headed for the church with 15 kids all around us, to give Prince a chance to talk with Michael. Prince was able to lead Michael to the Lord. Michael knew Prince, because Michael goes to West Ridge School, were Pastor Prince, Pastor Koasi and my husband, have devotions at the school every Wednesday morning. The seed was planted and each week being cultivated at the school and a soul was saved. They said they go to the SDA church. Pray for these teen boys, the devil wants them. It's a spiritual battlefield.

I Actually Grabbed My Jacket

We had a good rain last week, which brought some cooler weather. I actually grabbed my jacket. We have two banana trees with bunches of banana's on them, that I didn't want to blow over, so we helped prop them up with bamboo poles. I have been patiently waiting for the fruit. The wind carried a piece of our neighbors roof into our yard. It has rained quite a bit lately.

Our electric has been off and on for the past two weeks. So we have been using our other dinning room for our meals (our front porch). It is to hot to stay inside. In the evenings we usually grab our
re-chargeable lights, sit on the porch and do our devotions. Then we play, Phase-10, Uno, or some other game until the lights come back on.

Our kids are finishing taking their exams this week. 40 days left of school!!!

The boys got done with the yard work and then it rained.

Lights were out and it was raining.

It has been a quiet time around here. Just keeping up with school and ministry. I think I can spill the beans. We will be taking a furlough this June. It is not far away. Looking forward to it. As Dorthy from The Wizard of Oz says, "There's no place like home." OHIO.

On Monday our electricity was off for 8 hours then came back on for 3 hours, then went off another 3 hours. I got out of ironing for the day, hee hee. We went outside on our porch and played Phase 10, ate peanuts and crackers and had kool-aid, by candlelight, so romantic. It has rained off and on this week. The boys washed the car in the rain, and let the rain water rinse it clean. Of course I had clothes on the line and got soaked trying to get them down. Then it poured real hard, we got inside just in time.

Here are some picture of visitation last Saturday:
