Spring onions, peppers and tomatoes. I can’t wait for the harvest!
Holly Baptist Church from Corinth, Mississippi playing games with the students at Bangco Elementary School. We enjoyed hosting the team here and hope they return again.
Dormitories are under construction and will be completed around the first of the year, 2014. These will house only sixteen students, but it will be enough for our current students and those we intend to enroll next June. We thank the Lord and those who have helped us raise the funds to accomplish this.
Not everyone could make this hat look good, but he makes it look natural. This is one of the construction workers helping to build our two storey student dorm. Our missionary students will be moving into it in January. We will soon be ordering furniture, but we don’t want it too soon because we have no place to put beds, desks, or dressers until the construction is completed. We praise God for the assistance provided to our students and faculty!
Too often we become focused on our trials and problems that we forget to celebrate all the good things in life. Yesterday is gone and there’s nothing we can do to change what has already transpired. We can plan for tomorrow, but it isn’t here yet (tomorrow never comes). But we are in control of today. And in the waking hours we have today, we have the opportunity to accomplish what today was intended for. And my simple understanding, after many, many years of focus on ‘productivity’, is that positive interaction with other people is why today was created. There are hours remaining, so compliment, encourage, or help someone. Share the burden of life with others. In time, lifting the burden of others strengthens us so that carrying burdens is no longer a difficult task.
”...do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.” - Matthew 6:34
Yesterday is but today’s memory, and tomorrow is today’s dream. - Khahil Gibran
So neither the one who plants nor the one who waters is anything, but only God, who makes things grow.
1 Cor 3:7
Early mornings in Aurora are something special. I was out of bed as it became light today and feel as though I’ve experienced something extraordinary. We’re blessed to experience God’s majesty on display in this place every single day.
“An early-morning walk is a blessing for the whole day.”
