School Life

Hi everyone! Sorry we haven’t written for a long time! There is so much to talk about. But I will just tell you a bit about school now and also a Hip Hop Party.

School
We have really been enjoying ourselves at the school! I have loads of friends, including Lily from Finland, Tonya from Tanzania, Astrid from Denmark, Tia from Arusha, Ryan from Canada, Caleb from Bulgaria and many more! On Mondays we have Swahili lessons which I really enjoy. On Tuesdays we have cross country; I am the fastest girl in my class, but I am finding it hard to beat a girl called Alphie in the other class, and a few boys. On Wednesday we play Rounders, and tomorrow we have a Rounders tournament! I’m in it and I’m a little nervous. After school we have Netball Club which is very fun. On Thursdays we have French and science. In science we are learning about lifecycles. After school I have Tennis club and Louisa has art and crafts club. On Fridays we have ICT and swimming. I love swimming so much!
At school, there are monkeys everywhere! In the trees, in the rubbish bins and in the corridor. We have to lock our classroom doors so they don't come in!
The Hip Hop Party
On Saturday ( a few weeks ago) we went to a hip hop party. It was by the lake, and good fun. Pastor Zakio and his family were there, as well of many people from MICC ... and lots of street boys. We had hip hop music and dancing and conversations. Then we set up the tables with Pilau ( a delicious type of rice with vegetables) and rice, cabbage, meat stew, beans and watermelon. I served the beans and the watermelon. Then we had more dancing, and my dad won the dancing contest! Then we heard rapping testimonies (put to a beat and said very fast). It was loads of fun. Since then it has been really good seeing the boys around and at church.   
 
 
Saturday was a great day! I got my Liverpool shirt! I love it so so so so much! Go Liverpool!!!!

Making Little into Big

We are finishing our SODIS Shake fundraiser soon and we want to say THANK YOU to everyone who has helped us. After the Braithwaite Boys 6km Water Walk (which is on Friday), we will tell you the final amount raised and then we can give the money to Dr. Makori for the medical camps on the islands. We will tell you all about it when the camp happens in August. We really hope he can get an ultrasound and lots of other things he needs. The other money will start a fund to get a land cruiser. We are very thankful! Louisa read this story in the Bible and this is what she thought ...
 
There was just a little boy with five breads and two fish. But Jesus could make it enough for five thousand hungry people. Jesus can do lots of miracles like that. When you need help, maybe you don't need to go to your mum, you can pray to God because he knows even better. The story in John 6:6 when Jesus feeds five thousand people is a bit like the fundraising we did. We don't have enough money (like the man called Philip, who said they would need 200 silver coins to feed that many people), but if we pray to God, we will have enough. I thought it was amazing that Jesus made little into big. Just a little boy with a little bit of food but Jesus could make it for five thousand people. God can answer your questions better than your mum or dad! And even if you only have a little, he can make it big.
 
Here is my prayer ...
Dear God,
Thank you for a lovely day! I pray that I have helped people even being little. Thank you for my mum and dad. Amen.  
 

This is me at the Hip Hop Party on Saturday!
