W’apɔw mu ɛ?
We had a good morning at church. Brother Dare preached a good message out of Matthew 22 about the wedding garment. The power went off during church. I was hoping that our power had stayed on at home because lunch was in the crockpot. Our power at home must have stayed on because lunch was ready when we got there.
After lunch, the kids and I took a nap. Joe made hamburger buns for me in preparation for tomorrow’s company. The Aarons are coming for a couple days.
After naps, Joe, Gilbert, and I went out to tidy up the guest room. On the porch of that building, Joe killed a snake and a scorpion. Yuck! They were underneath some boxes. We took all of the boxes off of the porch.
We had another good church service tonight. Whenever there is a fifth Sunday, they have testimonies and special music. Our children sang “Jesus Loves Me” in English and then in Fante. The people really liked that. A lot of them did not know that we have all been working on learning Fante. I also sang a song. There were many good testimonies given. Our boys were commenting on how short church was tonight. I told them that it was the same amount of time as usual; it just went by faster since we were doing something different.
The Siekberts have some family visiting from the States. They are going to the ocean tomorrow. They need help transporting everyone; so, they invited us to go along. Since the kids are out of school tomorrow for Ghanaian Independence Day, we are all going to go with them. Hopefully we will get back home before the Aarons arrive in the afternoon. Then, on Tuesday, we are having some other missionaries over to celebrate July 4 a little early. We will have 25 people here. Some busy but fun days are ahead. I will try to get an e-mail sent tomorrow, but if you don’t hear from us, you’ll know why.
Joe, Laura, Gilbert, Danny, and Bonnie
