Today because of the heavy rains, we had to wait for them to minimize so the students could hear because of the rain hitting the tin roof. Then the students all moved in closer so they could hear as I finished the teaching on the Gift of the word of wisdom… Brother Mark Machado.
Today at Brother Theophilus (wearing blue on the right in the photo) church the sermon was on tithing. Praise God the congregation came and paid tithes and gave offerings!
This morning I spoke to this young Muslim girl on the way to our Training Course teaching. I asked her if she read the Koran? She said yes then I told her about the Prophet Jesus that Mohammed has written in the Koran . But she was not interested…09-12-2018.
Maybe we need to be a little more thankful in America? The three black buckets on the right in front of the two-tone pillar are the school children’s toilets! Yes everyone can see them as they stand in front or sit on them! Sometimes there will be a child on all three buckets at the same time. That’s the way it is done here! 09-12-2018.
