This past Sunday we had a wonderful time at our Drop Scones Party…which somehow changed its name to Food Party.
This time round, it was done at Teacher Monica’s home and what a treat she gave us!
In addition to teaching us how to make ‘Drops,’ she threw a surprise party for her daughter who’s birthday was only 4 days away.
We learnt about responsibility, breaking the name down to Response Ability. This was in two ways
a) Responding with obedience and respect to what our authorities tell us; and
b) Anticipating future needs and preparing to meet them before they come e.g. preparing for exams, picking out clothes for Sunday earlier in the week, etc.
This was followed by our usual question and answer time, some related to the topic of the day and some not, but all girl issues! J We love to bond!
We had two new girls, Brenda and Tracy; and also some other guests. Becky Bixler and her two sons Titus and Isaac joined us later together with Bishop and Betty Mwangi of Uganda.
The girls played outside skipping rope, and playing some football before leaving for home.
We thank God for this and for the future proposed plans:
a) August: Poem-the girls will be presenting a poem for CCIT’s 30 years anniversary celebrations, so this month will be dedicated to rehearsing and preparing for that big day. Responsibiillity,huh?
b) September: Baby Party – This will be when they go to Anngladys’s home to see her expected new born baby…
c) October: Milk Shake Party – Rachel will be teaching us how to make milkshake, and a girl lesson will be incorporated in this as well.
d) November: Prayer Party – when we shall encourage and pray for the candidates among us, as they prepare for and sit their final exams, and others, regular exams.
e) December: Samosa Party!!! – this will be together with a Christmas and end-year party, to thank God for 2010 and to plan for 2011.
Please pray with us for God’s continued presence, provision and above all, a great relationship with Him, helping the girls know their identity, worth and purpose in Him.
