No I don’t have a 6th grader, but the Edmond Memorial Men’s choir performed for the 6th graders. They do it every year. They sang an African folk song about taking a village to raise a child. Of course it was very good and had some fun lyrics to it. There is always a guest director for the 6th grade. This year it was the vocal music director from my school, Midwest City HS.
One thing a Boy Scout isn’t lacking is patches. So when Will finished his Eagle, I took the time sew all his patches in a blanket for him. I got Justin’s blanket caught up also. This past June, while I was working as a summer school secretary, I met a lady who wanted me to sew together all the doll blankets her daughter had received and make one big quilt. It went pretty quick and it’s exactly what the woman wanted for her daughter.
I can’t say enough about how wonderful this family is. They are some of the hardest working people for the kingdom of God. Every where Robin goes she is showing God’s love. She is constantly inviting people to church and to the theology classes, such as people she meets in stores, nail salon’s, etc. Over and over again I saw her at work.
Allen is constantly working to. He has an eye clinic, that is a free outreach for the church. He’s usually teaching bible studies and the theology classes once a week. He also does some counseling too.
It was very exciting to work with them for three weeks.
We went with the Dutton’s to this town for a long weekend. It was a beautiful hotel and area. The city was beautiful. The town hosted the Ivory Coast during the World Cup. This town is in the mountains in Brazil. The flowers were beautiful even though it was winter.
Rio isn’t the only place in Brazil that had a Christ statue.
