Bananas, T, and Aaron’s Trip
Tuesday, August 30
This morning, my kids, Naomi and I paddled over to Karumolun with a couple friends to take some ubikola (cassava) for the workshop. The kids worked hard to get most of their school work done ahead of time, so as soon as the morning chores were done, we slathered on the sunscreen and headed out the door. Several of our Karumolun friends met us on the beach after our paddle. Our kids played with the kids from Karumolun, and I visited while we waited for Aaron and the translator candidates to finish their morning session.
I especially enjoyed visiting with Janet, Ezekiel's wife, and playing with some of their grandkids. It was nice to see Aaron again and to visit with the five translator candidates that attended this workshop. Thanks for your prayers for him as he trains these leaders who are fast becoming friends.

We have no bananas today...but soon we will! Our first bunch of bananas, over by my kitchen, is almost ripe. I'm depending on my friends to help me know when the bananas are ready to pick.

Our family has been enjoying celebrating letter T this week with Katherine. Sarah made tarts and had a tea party with Katherine. They both thoroughly enjoyed it.
Aaron returned home this afternoon from teaching a Translation Principles workshop in Karumolun. We are so thankful to have him back home again. A big thank you to everyone who has been praying for him as he taught this week!
