Monday afternoon Vernon, Shad and Reuben (the kids that are used to playing with our grandsons) came to play games. Terry started teaching them chess while I taught reading to the kids from GE, then they played soccer together. I had not seen Moses anywhere for a couple of weeks, but he came Friday to play games and was in church this a.m..
A missionary couple came for lunch on Tuesday. They are a little bit younger than us.We had a really good time with them…. They are from Lexington, NC.After they left, I went to Twatasha to see Gloria (a young pastor’s wife) . I helped her with knitting, then we went to visit some people. I got home just as Mr. Kaoma from next door arrived for Bible Study. So thankful for many blessings and strength for the day.
That day we also had ordered a dumptruck of stone from the mines. Because the IFMZ atm card wouldn’t work, we could only get 9 tons instead of 15. But, the neat thing we found out when talking to the driver about the Lord, was that he is Kaonde (the language group of my childhood). We are thankful we have a contact now when we need a large truck for hauling.
Bana Dan’s granddaughter who has been sick for some time, died on Monday. The funeral was Wednesday. I went with four ladies to the funeral at the Chingola Rd. Cemetery. There were about 400 there. The question “Where will you spend eternity?” was the message preached, but no answer was given to the question! (not our pastor!)
Ba Richard, Ba Stella and Bana Brenda went visiting with us to Garneton East on Saturday. We were walking by three older teens who were working and they called to us to come and talk to them. After talking for about one hour, all three said they wanted to accept the Lord. One was really struggling. He said, “I want to be saved, but I know I am going to sin.” (he had some plan for later in the day) We told him he had to make his choice. Ba Richard talked to 2. We went to pick them up for Bible Study this afternoon, but their boss made them go and unload a truck full of sand!
We had about 35 kids today. They were very good, considering the number there!! Some really listened (about Jacob stealing Esau’s birthright).
So thankful for Emmanuel,
Sandy for us both
