After checking his room- no answer and the various hiding places out the back, again no answer, we decided to wait till 9. If he was not back by then then we would go out looking for him. Well 9 came and went, so we went too
Today the preschool children started practising for the opening of the new building at the end of October (well thats the plan anyway). they are bringing the band back for a reunion. With an exception they have a drum that they are beating. They gave it to Afsha initially but quickly discovered that she has worse rythm than me, so was quickly demoted and Sapuni is the new lead drummer! It has also meant that the infamous rythem of 123 123 1-2-3 is back and will going through my head for the next few weeks!
The afternoon class had their free day which presumably because the teachers coudn't think of anything else to do with them, played games. I took the boys and played a few vollyball based games, then a catching game which they enjoyed. Then chaos broke loose when I made the fatal mistake of taking out my camera
I do have 2 prayer requests if possible. One is for a boy called Namal, who I swear is like doctor Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. He was with us fishing on Sunday and was the most plesent child you could ever wish for. Then he comes to Smile and turns into a terror. He can be very rough and has a violent streak in him which today and yesterday resulted in 2 girls bawling their eyes out after he had hit them for no reason, and me at the end of my patience with him. So if you could pray that he calms down a bit and for patience for me!
Also pray for myself, Caroliine and the staff here over the next few weeks. I think it has clicked with them that we are going home soon, as Niami said twice to me that we are going home soon and the children will miss us. As it gets close to us going home, it is going to get worse so any prayers as regards that would be grteatly appreciated!
