Last night we got to show a fun movie to the orphans and some local kids complete with popcorn and candy. It was fun to hold some kids in our laps who had the opportunity to forget how hard their lives are for an hour and just laugh at the silly things happening on the big screen with a belly full of popcorn!
We’ve had a great Monday here in the Mole. We had a record number of women show up for our first Bible Study. They must have heard Betty was teaching and came from miles away to hear—some ladies even walked for 40 minutes (with 2 year old twin boys) just to attend.
Betty shared a lesson on the Psalms and showed the ladies how to read a psalm and understand to deeper meaning. Even though I burned the brownies and the hot tea didn’t have salt (?!?), I think the ladies enjoyed the time. There was even a little time before lunch to hold some orphans.
After lunch we walked with our translators around town and up the mountain stopping at houses and huts to invite kids to come to the mission to see another fun movie tonight. We also got to sit in on Jody’s women’s study this afternoon and I think it was just as convicting for us as well as them!
Be in prayer for the study we will have tomorrow teaching about God’s free gift of grace.
Thanks for all the comments on the blog. We have enjoyed hearing from you and receiving the encouragement!
