Shamattawa- Day 7-Thursday- 7/20/2017

Beautiful sunny day so far. All up and had breakfast prepared by Dave. Dave left to go to a funeral on our behalf for Sam Miles, who passed away last week. It is being held at the Anglican Church. This is a member of the community who has lived here his entire life. A grandfather, father, and uncle to many. The story today was the story of Zacchaeus the tax collector that Jesus called down out of the tree and invited himself to his home. We also sang the song about Zacchaeus. The kids played a couple of relay games, and follow the leader, snacks and coloring pages. We spent much of the afternoon organizing and packing tubs and boxes. Friday these containers will go into storage for another 51 weeks until we return next July. This evening we went to the school to use the internet to update the Trinity LAMP Blog, but internet was intermittent so no updated blog again today sorry! Oh well we needed the exercise anyway. The school is a one mile walk each way. Back home again for final packing, devotion, and prayer.
