A new week!

What a beautiful Sunday it's been!  We went to Kisongo this morning for worship, because Jacob was asked to preach.  He did a wonderful job!  It was a really nice treat.  Our evening devo with the missionaries was canceled, because almost everyone wasn't going to be able to make it, but our family still had a devo with just us, which was nice. :)


 I started my Romans\Galatians class on Thursday, and I really enjoyed the first class!  At 8am there's a devo for all the students (*insert me shuffling to a chair trying to look inconspicuous*), and at 8:30 we go in and have class until 10, when there's a half hour break for tea {Mwahaha!  It's great, and especially useful for thawing you out once you've become an ice cube}.  Then we go back in until noon, then we break for lunch.  After lunch, it's class from 1 until 3.   


On Saturday, the Samfords had a "fish fry" at their house, and it was alot of fun!  They had bought some fish and cooked them {they fixed most of the fish how they like them here - whole fish, minus the insides}, and invited a bunch of people over.  Almost all that came were from the Arusha congregation, but most of the ACSOP students came as well, along with a few others.  In all, there was about 80 people.

The Samfords have a trampoline, so a game that Bonnie had the guys play was the "Masai jumping contest".  By far, my favorite part of the day, haha!  When she first told them they were going to have a Masai jumping contest, they got all excited, because most of them have had real practice!  They had alot of fun trying to do it on the trampoline, though.  Joseph was my favorite {he's actually a Masai}, because he got onto the trampoline, took the jumping stance, and started jumping, doing the Masai "Eeo!" sound at the top of his jump, then starting doing another sound that's made by sucking air in and out of your throat  {Yes, sorry it's so hard to describe!}.  After that, the women played musical chairs, and they loved it!  We all had alot of fun.  :)


I hope you all are having a wonderful Sunday!

Dun dun duuun

Our internet is finally back, yay!


Not too much has been going on, just the usual things.  I went with Jacob today on his Bible studies.  He has two really good ones going on right now.  One is a lady who's husband is a member of the church at Kisongo (they're newly married), and the other is a girl who also lives in Kisongo.  Jake's been studying with the second lady's husband as well, but unfortunately the husband wasn't able to be there today.  We weren't able to stay and study long at all today with the second lady, so we're going back tomorrow morning.  Please pray that these women and also the husband will have honest hearts, open to the gospel.  

I might take one of Dad's classes (Romans and Galatians, I think) at the school, starting next week. 


It's the rainy season, so we've been getting tons of it lately, which is really nice, because that means we have plenty of water.  We get to do laundry and everything! :)  Gray, dark, rainy days always make we want to snuggle up with a blanket and either read or take a nap.  {happy sigh}
(By the way, how do you all spell "Gray" with an "a" or an "e"?  Just curious, because how I spell it always changes.)


{What a wimpy little post! :D}

Our internet is out at the moment...something's wrong with it, so we're working on getting it fixed.  Right now Julia, Lydia and I are at the Samfords using their internet.  I love having them as neighbors!!!  Usually I use any excuse to walk over and see them. Bwahaha!

Hopefully I'll be able to do a "real" post soon.
