What DO You Do All Day?

That was the question asked.  I wonder what people think I am doing here?  My work is not an 8 hour a day job where I teach specific lesson plans, or scrub floors all day.  God has blessed me with a variety of opportunities to serve others.  I am so busy that I have not had time to unpack everything.  When I speak, the house has a hollow sound because I have had no time to measure windows for curtains.  I hope to soon find a kitchen table and chairs.  It’d also be nice to find a bed frame for my mattress.

OK, so that’s some of what I haven’t had time to do, but what AM I doing?  God has sent some sincere people to me who have questions about the Bible.  Because I believe it is important to know what God wants us to do, I always take time to talk with them.  I have done a lot of one on one counseling.   I attend the LST Thursday night parties in order to get to know the Readers.  Some asked to be in my Monday night English Small Group Bible study that begins Oct. 19.

On Sunday evenings, I take the Lord’s Supper to a sweet new Christian who is ill.  Wednesday afternoon, I meet with the counselors to discuss cases.  I meet with the Director of the Red Cross to discuss and approve the use of funds donated to God’s Children.  We are providing some funds for special treatment for a handicapped child who received a walker from us earlier this year.  We are providing medication and vitamins for a little boy whose immune system is very weak.

I write newsletters keeping people informed about the work.  This often results in donations to help the children and elderly here.  When I can steal a 1/2 hour, I unpack a suitcase or box to sort through what is to be given to the Red Cross for the needy.  And, when my emotions well up inside of me because I am still grieving over losing the love of my life, I take time to be alone and allow myself to have my feelings for awhile.  The God of all comfort will see me through this.  — Anne

Csilla, my personal "Bag Lady" took me to the best plastics shop.  I now own a dish drainer, several small trash cans, a mat for the front porch, etc.  Everyone should have a "Bag Lady!"
