what a fun evening we had with this family. She taught us to make sopapillas. Brian put together a game for the older girls to play. He had them blindfolded and then set up a maze for them to navigate. Meanwhile the elders were trying to either help them stay on course by telling them which way to go… or trying to confuse them by telling them the wrong way. The people in the room are just calling out directions.. Go right… turn left… walk straight… turn around… etc. etc.
You can guess what this activity was trying to accomplish. We all have voices everyday giving us advice on where to go and it is important to listen to the right voice that will help us make better choices every day. The older girls loved it. They will be 10 and 12 this year. Everybody had a good time.
This week I start teaching the older girl how to play the piano. She loves to play. She has an app on their phone they they use and she loves to come up after church and play on the keyboard. She is excited to start learning notes etc.
It’s my hope that when I am gone she can play for their congregation. That would be great. They say over and over how much they enjoy having someone who can play for them. Otherwise they just do the best they can without a piano.
Hugs to everyone. We love you
Oh yeah…. and Hope you all enjoyed the Eclipse!!
