Another good day in the Amun week...

 Another good day in the Amun week! The weather is hot and there is quite a lot of (warm) wind. But the children are doing well and they are learning and responding on the teaching. Because the average age is this year a bit lower than the last years, our teachings are also shorter and more practical...
 These are 3 of the youngest children. They are doing their own thing at times, one had found some balloons.... But they do pick up from the teachings and in their small groups in the afternoon, they come up with interesting statements. We have gone (so far) with 7 children to the clinic next door, several of them have malaria or other infections, which needed treatment.
 Dominique gave a teaching about the subject: You are special. A message we can't give enough to the children. She used games and other creative ways to let them know that they are special. Naume is the translator.
The second lessons was about relationship. What are the basic pillars in every relationship (Love, trust, respect, communication) When I saw this picture I had to smile, Margaret was translating from English into Atesso, while at the right you can see Andrew sitting, with some children around him, he was translating into Kumam. We noticed that several children missed too much, because they speak another language, Kumam.I wonder what they are saying here, Margaret and Julius are pointing into different directions... This lessons was with many questions for the children, they were very active in answering.

P.S. I want to ask your prayers for baby Esther. I was called this afternoon, by Deborah, who is with her in the hospital, I went to see them, It was not so good with the baby, the NG tube was back in and no foods were given anymore, the baby has some seizures. I took a blood sample to a laboratory, tomorrow we will get the result.
