So funny story, happened on James' birthday. Let me start by saying that I made him a carrot cake, that he enjoyed many nights. However, that day he decided to ride his bike to Bible study. He left and then me and the children left to go visiting with ladies. So when we get back home at 5:30, we found out that he had a flat tire about half way up to the Bible study, so he walked into Chinteteba, then on the way home, the sweet guys there would not let him walk back to Kaputa, they wanted to bring him and their bicycles. So one guy Mwansa, carried James' bike on the back of his bike. Then Sylvester, carried James on the back of his bike. I wish so bad I had a picture of that. Unfortunately there is no documentation of this. Only imagination. I am so thankful for those two guys, who wanted to see James safely home.
We still have hopes to one day have dairy cows. Since milk is expensive, and heavy to haul up here, we would love to have them one day. Its a huge project that we are trying to be as prepared for as possible, so its been slow moving. James goes to the place he's prepared and works to clear the land and make a place to keep the cows, and he's looking at trying to dig a well there too! It might still be a while, but we are hopeful.
The kids are doing so good in school, even though they don't love the sitting still to write, we try to have fun with it. It's always a challenge, because Charlie likes to help her brother and sister with school, so one day she asked to go with James to Bible study and I was thrilled! Well actually she asked to go to the market with him, but he was going to the market on the way to Bible study. So James took her. She loved it! She was such a good girl, and she enjoyed her special time with Daddy.
This month has been good, we are ready to have some rain!!! We are already well into wetting our hair at 2pm everyday!!!! Instant air conditioner!!!!
Here is a picture of the choir, and most of the people who came forward to join Christ!
Also we just finished a scripture memory set and everyone who was able to say all ten verses got one of these awesome tshirts!
James is still working on preparing for us to have dairy cows one day, but it is a very big project. These boys were helping clear the field to put up a catch pin. They also caught themselves some snacks.
Charlie said the other day she wanted to go with James to this new preaching point. She did so good! Of course everyone loved her! She's such a sweetie!
