The weather is a changin' here in Papua New Guinea. We've gone from very very hot weather to cold nights and wet, drizzly days.
This week also brought major problems with one of the backup generators that powers our center when (not if) the national power supply goes out. Our house was one of the lucky (?) ones to be without power from around 4pm until 9 the next morning. Brian helped with a temporary fix that is currently keeping the lights on while they work on ordering a new crank shaft from Australia or the U.S. Until then, we are praying that the national power stays on!
Tonight is Banquet - probably the biggest event at the end of the school year. It's a special dinner for the 11th and 12th graders. The parents of the graduating class always put together a play poking fun at and celebrating their kids. The Teen Center building is transformed and decorated with a very top secret theme. I'm not directly involved with Banquet this year, but I have been doing my part by doing alterations for a few of the students on their dresses and pants.
Our neighbors gifted us a very large lettuce!
Gina, despite my original misgivings, has been on an impressive egg-laying spree the past two weeks, but now she has gone broody. Since our hens have no access to a rooster, it's an exercise in futility for her to try to hatch any eggs, and I've been trying to break her mood. She's not a happy chicken right now.
It's been a long time since the boys have played in their dirt spot under the front of the house, but this week the construction work has resumed.
I found a great price on cream cheese at one of the stores in Kainantu, and so I made cream cheese Danish for our Bible study group last night.
Caleb was very excited to have a friend over to play this morning.
That's all for this week!
