The top photo is of all the people who were residents of The Pines. Actually, there should be one more since one of the house mothers is on holiday. The other photos are of our outreach Bible club at Reahola.
Yesterday was sunny once again, and we were all glad because we were able to have Bible club! Due to the rain on Saturday, we had to cancel. So, we decided to make up the day on Monday.
Games were crazy! There were at least 70 children present! Thankfully, Kara, Katherine, and Suzy were able to take the smaller ones aside and play duck-duck-goose. The older kids enjoyed playing steal the bacon and (Sparky)in and out. After game time is song time. Dawn, Holly, and I taught the children "Bind Us Together," earlier in the week, and it was definitely a hit! The kids just love to sing songs. After singing is our Bible lesson from Gina. She does a wonderful job, and praise the Lord, a little boy accepted Jesus Christ as His personal Savior! Gina shared a story with the children and gave an invitation just before she prayed. She told the children that if anyone wanted to talk more about Jesus, they should come up and stand next to her while she was praying. When we all opened our eyes, a little boy was standing at her side! Gina was able to share the plan of salvation and pray with him. How wonderful that the gospel is simple enough for a child!
No news will seem exciting after THAT, so I will share a prayer request with you.
Holly went to the doctor yesterday, and he told her that she has South African sore throat. He said that it is like tonsillitis, but worse! He gave her some strong antibiotic, some anti-inflammatory, some throat lozenges, and some vitamins to drink. However, a couple of hours after her first dose of medicine, she broke out in Hives. Then again today, after breakfast, she got Hives again! We went to see the pharmacist, and he told her to keep taking it for one more day, just to ensure that her Hives are actually from the medicine. Her throat is feeling somewhat better, but she is very tired. She is also feeling discouraged. Please keep Holly in your prayers!
