We've finally made it past carnival and can leave our house. Now that we have our freedom we can finally try to establish a good schedule of service. We have one Bible study so far with the daycare we mentioned earlier. So far its going really well. The kids are all three or four years old on average. We were prepared to do the Bible story book and Learn from the Great Teacher but the Bible Story book seemed to be more their level so we've been sticking to that. We hope to get the Learn from God brochure (once they get more at the Hall) because everyone uses it here with kids and also to find a way to use the videos or the activities from the website. We've only been twice but the owner wants us to come four times a week! There is an aide who sits in to help manage the kids and she adores the stories; She even follows along and helps the children to answer our questions or helps us with our Spanish. We reward them with stickers and candy when they answer questions to try and help prolong their attention spans.
When we read the story about the Garden of Eden we had all the kids act like animals so "Adam" could name them.
This is Monica being an elephant. She was super eager to answer all of the questions.
This is the other Santiago, Elena's new boyfriend, being a giraffe. He is such a sweetheart, he would just stare until he couldn't contain himself and had to kiss her.
Our new goal is commenting at meetings, its so hard in another language. It really makes us appreciate the efforts of ones in our hall like Rosa, Gosia, and Hyon-Ju (sorry if we spelled their names wrong we just had meeting and we are a little brain dead). I also got my first talk assignment tonight. In a month I have a talk (not a householder! AHH!) about the Memorial emblems. Yikes! We have early morning service tomorrow so we better head to bed. Talk to you all later.
