Marulaon Woman's Daybook
Just for today...Monday, April 25
On my bookshelf..."Tambora: The Eruption that Changed the World"
From the kitchen...leftover pizza from yesterday. Sunday lunch in the village is always homemade pizza, this week with some of our precious pepperoni.
Around the village...Sarah has been learning how to weave different kinds of baskets from Leku. Now we don't have to ask for other people to make them for us when we need a container to hold yard waste or to transport lots of pineapples.
From the learning rooms...Katherine is learning about light and mirrors and magnifying glasses. She had fun playing with the mirrors, and Benjamin had fun scorching things with our bright sun coming through the magnifying glass.
Pondering these words..."Let your religion be less of a theory and more of a love affair." ~G.K. Chesterton
Outside my window...the red papaya seeds are finally sprouting and growing like crazy after two weeks of sitting quietly in the soil.
A few plans for the rest of the week...Aaron is gearing up for a translation awareness tour this weekend to remind each village that they need to elect new translation committee members to come to Marulaon for the May 8 meeting.
