Village Hopping! We didn't go to Eek last weekend. We are going to try to go this weekend. They are having a big basketball tournament, ha, maybe Steph and I can jump in on a team. Wish Ani luck, he'll be flying the friendly skies for his very first time. He's still not too sure about the whole 'kennel' idea. I've been feeding him in it. So what he has figured out??? If he keeps his back feet firmly planted on the outside the kennel while reaching into the back where the food is and eating it from this stretched position, he is rescued from actually having to be in the kennel. There is some kind of analogy to life there, for me anyway. But it's too profound to have to think about right now.
We finished our 2nd Beth Moore Bible Study on the Fruits of the Spirit. Our little group up here has really been enjoying and growing from those studies. They require a lot of reading and digging in the bible, learning, sharing and thinking. We are ordering our final one for this year and are already excited about next year's. We would recommend Beth's Studies to any women's groups out there, they are solid and deep! Great stuff.
Finally they call themselves "Michael's Angel's" Quyana Mike for the bracelets and shades. We are putting them to good use:) The girls came over after school so we watched "The Great Outdoors" and dressed up pretending that it was summer time, hence the sunglasses.
As you might recall my kitchen drain was frozen the entire time MIke was visiting so this is how we emptied it after washing dishes.
A few more pics from Mike. These are the kids waiting on my porch to 'visit' after school while he was here. I was conveniently at work until 5 or 6 that particular day;)
Shout Out To: Mum and Sammie! Happy Birthdays (28 and 53 respectively!) on the 16th! Love you and miss you so much!
I can see clearly now the dark is gone. It is 10:00 pm and looks like it's maybe 5:00 pm. The Midnight Sun is definitely upon us here in Quinhagak, Alaska. Lots of Light! And that is a blessing. This verse seems to fit and made me smile... someday.
