I missed a couple photo ops last weekend. The 9th grade classed showed the movie Monsters University in our Meeting House as a fundraiser. They sold popcorn and it almost felt like we were at the movies, except for the very uncomfortable wooden benches. Josh was also in a short play about Job during our Sunday morning service.
We have lots of spiders all over our yard! Some of them are so pretty that I’m starting to see spiders a new way. It’s much easier to appreciate them outside my house. If they venture inside, that’s another story!
Josh’s basketball team had their first game this week. They played against a local school and a big crowd of PNGns came to watch. They lost in double overtime, but it was pretty close. Not bad since one of the kids on Josh’s team used to go to that school in 6th grade and there was an 18 year old in his class! School looks very different in PNG. Sometimes kids have to take off a year or more of school because their parents cannot afford school fees or their village may be fighting.
For the past 2 weeks they’ve had “Book Fair” going on at the primary school. They’ve had reading goals, a chance to exchange books and also donate books to a local school. Today was the last day and they ended it with an annual Book Parade where the kids dressed up as their favourite book character and paraded around the school.
