Tomorrow we finish up another unit of language study, and on Sunday we hit the road again. We’ll be going to the capital city and spending 5 days at the mission home there so we can start learning the new responsibilities that we will be taking on when we move there in October. Pray that we’ll have a profitable time and also be able to get in a little rest and relaxation, since we’ll be starting right back into language study when we get back.
Areli and Galilee turned two years old on July 26. Our hard working house helpers made a traditional birthday meal for them–yellow rice, fried chicken, potato patties, a fried peanut and soy mixture, finely ground dried meat, etc. About 20 of our friends showed up to help us celebrate, so our porch was filled to capacity, and we didn’t have much food left over after they all went home. You can see pictures of the girls’

I (Jennifer) have started a chronological Bible study with the lady who comes twice a week to help me with language. We are starting in Genesis and studying through key passages in Scripture that teach who God is, who mankind is, what sin is, and how God has provided a way for us to be saved from the consequences of sin. I’m using a guide for this Bible study that has been translated into the national language. Pray for the Lord’s work in my friend’s heart. She has a lot of knowledge about the Scriptures, but it is mixed with her own beliefs, as well as with the belief that her good works will get her into heaven.
