Paper Folding

mm01 ===mm02

The first example holds 4 pictures, seen by folding and opening in the middle. The second example folds into a box.
The first is the story of Abraham and Isaac, and the second shows pictures of Jesus' birth.
I use these (and others) with the kids on Saturdays. Works better for me than just narrating the story. The kids enjoy coloring their example which I print in black and white.

A mixed group

BS

School starts tomorrow, Tuesday, for these kids. So next Saturday, we hope to see a more stable group. Of these six, only three can read. The others are too young. Although the youngest girl in front of me stays attentive when I work with the older ones, the two across from me have a short attention span. Faby helped me keep those two occupied. I was pleased that the three older ones really enjoyed looking up Bible verses. We're memorizing the first 5 books of the OT and the first 4 of the NT. They themselves have made it a competition to see who finds a verse first. Hopefully, next week, we'll have another 4 who can read. Then we'll see what to do with the younger ones. Always a challenge.

Patience

Take a lesson from our dog, "Bellita:" sit back and relax, and trust God for His timing. School starts next week for the kids. During vacation the attendance has been irregular. I hope that will change when classes start. Our Wednesday night Bible study continues. More than a class, the group is becoming a family. Not sure where we're going from here, but the two couples and single woman are faithful attenders.

"Let the morning bring me word of your unfailing love,
for I have put my trust in you.
Show me the way I should go,
for to you I lift up my soul."
Psalm 143:8

Faby and kids

Good to see Faby back in action again. Still struggling with health issues, headaches and memory, but we're trusting God for each day.
This week God led us to a Quichua church only 15 minutes from our home! We're talking with the pastor about where we might fit in and help.
