As a local 4th of July aside: So it finally got hot - 113 degrees yesterday, down to 112 today, and a cold front of 105 by Sunday…FYI - 106 is ‘hot’, but 105 only rates ‘sunny’ [or so says the weather-guy].
Spent yesterday building Franken-Pulpit at the foreign fellowship…lots of brackets, drill bits and glue. The Spirit showed up, and the clear plastic pulpit imploded the Sunday prior during service while Todd was acting as MC, and just prior to Mike offering a message. We felt the least we could do was to try and repair what was broke.
Late night chatting about those things missionary…good stuff.
This morning Todd’s daughter taught me how to turn on the stove top to make coffee…I just asked her…it really surprised Todd that she knew how to do that. Then she started to teach me some Chinese:
Nee hun bun...........................you are stupid
Eda pee jew hund ah..............your butt’s so big
Nee chur fung la ma...............have you eaten?
Nee hun piao liang..................you are pretty
The impromptu Chinese class is then interrupted by ‘naked Bible-man’.
Eli is running around the house playing superhero in his Bible-man cape, and that’s pretty much all he’s wearing.
“Hey look, it’s naked Bible-man” - me
“No I’m not! I’m the good guy! I’m Bible-man!” - Eli
“Okay, you’re good naked Bible-man.” - me
“He may be good bible-man, but he’s also naked bible-man” Makayla
Kid’s are fun…
Off to the Play Center to un-Christian 130 shoeboxes full of gifts for delivery at a school out near the ‘dreamers’ village…all in hope to open the way to Jesus, and the reservoir project
