sunday pics

So yesterday I just blogged some thoughts, and today I will just blog some pics...okay, maybe with a few words tagging along...

Yesterday (Saturday) was a day of homevisits for Andrew. In the morning he went to visit a lady who, though she knew he was coming, got confused and for some reason thought he was coming in the afternoon, so had gone to the market instead in the morning. So instead Andrew made an impromptu visit to another member of the congregation who lives in the Kamkumung area. Then he came home for a few hours before heading back to Kamkumung again to visit the lady he intended to visit in the morning, who once again was out. So he did another impromptu visit with a man who had attended our church for a while (not a member) but had stopped coming, and then finally actually got to visit with the member he had planned to visit all along... That's the way it goes in PNG, but the great thing about the day was that two other visits got done as well. But then that was the Lord's planning, hey? (He always does have His plans, despite our minor frustations!)

This first picture is just of Kirilee putting a bilum on her head in
preparation for independence day celebrations at her school tomorrow (hope to post some pics of this later if I remember to bring the camera tomorrow!).

And then some pics from Today:

How many people can you squish into a ten-seater car on the way to church?

Two gorgeous faces in Sunday school. Christina is on the left singing heartily and Robert is on the right (he was the three year old boy I wrote about on yesterday's blog, who came with us to pick up Shiana) - aren't they just adorable?

Kirilee and Shiana joining in during Sunday School

Sunday School became too tiring for little Yoniche - so she went to her Mum for a sleep (daughter of John and Polena Lanta) - she is also such a cutie!

Then, back at home and playing some games (this one was Racko) with Justine (a Phillipino girl who lives in our compound) and Monique (who also lives in our compound). Hey, Elise, do you see Flat Stanley hanging on the wall above our laptop? That's so Shiana can remember to type all about his adventures on the computer!

While the big kids played games, Ashlyn had the more important task of peeling a cucumber for Mum. Ian and Nadia, please note that the cucumber is from your garden (and they do taste good!!) - oh, and thanks Tim for planting them!

Hi Auntie Nat. I liked seeing Flat Stanly on the wall. I can't wait to hear about all of the adventures Stanly has done in PNG. I can't wait till he comes back and then I can share it with my class.
Love, Elise
The pictures are just gorgeous. TFS
Love, Denise
