While we didn’t have a full week of school, we did finish our first week. I’m still trying to get into the swing of things on the van driving front. Remember where to be when and all that good stuff. This week Pam will be joining me and I will be expanding my route a bit. This will be a full week of driving and our students first full week of classes. As part of worship this morning, Pam prayed for our students, teachers and aides, administrators, bus drivers and aides, and support staff. We also prayed for James as he will be headed back to Houghton before next Sunday.
This past week our ministerial association served lunch to our teachers. They were grateful for our time and service and it is a pleasure to serve our teachers.
Not much else happened last week, just a lot of getting used to new schedules. As I already mentioned, this week James will be getting ready to head back to college and Anna will have an in-service day this week. I’m hoping to get my running routine back on track.
It was a beautiful weekend – in many ways. The weather has been very nice. Yesterday, we went to INDIAFest, which was a great way to hear and see the arts from India as well as get a taste of food from there as well. I think one of my favorites is naan, which is an Indian flat bread. We also sampled Chicken Tikka, Butter Chicken, rice, palak paneer (which is a spinach dish) it was very good. Both Anna and I enjoyed the food – I was surprised that it wasn’t all spicy, but very flavorful.
This morning we again had a wonderful, Spirit-filled and Spirit-led service. Our attendance was down because of sickness and end-of-summer vacations. But that didn’t dampen the enthusiasm. God spoke to us in a mighty way. After the service we took James one last time to Taco Bell and this evening we went for ice cream. All in all, its been a great week and I’m looking forward to another great one!
