This Week's Highlights

Lots happens in a week. Last post was last Saturday.
The weeks seem to be long, but when I look back at all we've done, 
well that answers why the week seems long.
The Students are busy with notes for a new blouse pattern, or sewing it.
 Production is busy with sewing items Peter has ready for them.

Anne Marie
 Theo has taken on sewing uniforms in his spare time during the day.
He asked us to buy two bolts of cloth for the uniforms and to take it off his pay. 
He will be busy with that when not teaching and being there for the students.
Peter is busy cutting for the ones in Production.
We have 2 to 3 come in the morning, and 6 to 8 come in the afternoon.

And what do I do?
Well, I check all the work that the students sew. Telling them where they could improve and marking what they have finished. I am seeing some great sewers develop. That is very exciting. 
They have 1 1/2 months to improve on their skill. 
Also, when each one in production is finished an item, I check it over and give them a number to sew on what they have finished. As of right now, 2 sewers in production could buy a sewing machine, IF all of their items they have sewn were sold. Many more are very close to being in that same place. They are excited about that. 
It would be so cool if they could get those machines before we left for Canada, but that would mean we would have to have them all sold before we left.

Today, Saturday, was another baking day in the outdoor oven.
Alphonsine has cleaned the garden up getting it ready to plant maize and beans,
which will be in the next couple of weeks.
Ovens getting heated.
Devil's food cake on the menu.
no eggbeater.
Bread dough for bread, pizza, and cinnamon buns.
Pizza sauce
Toppings, along with pineapple, and green pepper and cheese.
The cake turned out great despite it being unlevel.
the cheese
First the sauce.
Pizza for Peter
Pizza for me.
The cake was very good with tea, while we waited for the buns, bread and pizza to cook.
These will go to the school on Monday. Give them a taste of what our oven is capable of doing!
the bread.
One of our young hens just laid her first egg today while we were baking.
This hen is one of the chicks from our first hens we had.
Two months from today we will be flying.
Can't believe that twenty and a half months have gone by already!

Praising God again for His protection over us, and our families in Canada, and the USA.
Also for giving us strength each day for the work He has for us here.
