Sunday School: Olivia's Blog #6

We have been settling into our home, and we’ve taken on the challenge to make friends.  One Sunday I noticed all the kids get up to leave for Sunday school.  I thought it would be a great way to meet friends, and connect with other girls.  As Winnie, Given and I approached the group under the mango tree, all eyes trailed on us.  I held my head as confidently as I could, as we approached and stopped near the back.  We joined in clapping and singing the simple song in English.

Soon it was time to sit down for the Sunday school sermon.  My sisters and I started to sit down on the grass mat, but the teacher wouldn’t have it.  After clearing about eight kids that were crammed on one bench off, for the three of us.  The teacher then started on the short sermon.  The teacher asked some questions that were directed at us, and then we memorized the memory verse.  As I think back on that first time going to Sunday school, I remember how nervous and small I felt, and how grateful I was to have my sisters at my side.  We have now attended Sunday school about five times, and I think friendships are blossoming. 

Our farm continues to thrive under the careful care of Mr. Abraham, our gardener.  Mom has remembered to state the fact that, without him, all our animals would be dead by now!  Well, that’s all for now folks…HA! I love saying that!   But anyway, thank you for reading,
