April 18, "One On One"

by Margaret K.

My name is Margaret I am 17 years.
It was on Sunday when we woke up very early in the morning with my friend whom we live with.We did our duties and after we had finished our work we went to have our breakfast at around 7.30 am and by 7.50 we had had all taken our breakfast, that’s when our maytron told us we are free to go to church by 8.00 am I was in the church.
I was very anxious to hear what the preacher was going to preach. After five minutes the preacher came in we all stood up and said the lords’ prayer and after the Lord’s Prayer we sang one song and by that time the preacher was standing at the alter ready to preach. The first reading was from the book of proverbs 24.1; 5, he preached for half an hour and the offertory was collected.
We prayed for the offertory and we ended with the benediction and the service was over .We went home and on a ourway home everybody talked about the preacher.

I'm writing from Chicago. Just wanted to tell you I enjoyed reading "One on One." I'm curious though, what happens in Proverbs 24:1; 5? (I don't know the Bible very well--but it sounds like you do.) Do you like singing in church? How big is the church? Is it only children that go there? Thanks for sharing your experience; I can't wait to read more posts about life at the Children's Center.

Hello Margaret. I am Gabrielle - Lara's sister-in-law. I live in America with my two children. My husband (Lara's brother) lives far away because he is doing his studies, but we will live together again soon. I am so happy to read about life in Tumaini Children's Center. What did you say about the preacher when you came home from church?

Dear Margaret

I am Lara's mom and am very glad to meet you! I am very interested in your life at Tumaini. Who are your roomates? Do you live in one big room with lots of kids like one big family? Do you have smaller children that you are responsible for? With your great english and wonderful bible knowledge you would make a great mentor!!!!! (ask Lara and Claire if you don't know what that means!!) Please tell me more about your days! Love Melanie

Like the commenters above, I am very curious to hear more about your life there. I will check back here to see if there are updates in a day or two.

Hi Margaret--I live in California and am Claire's mother. I was very interested in your story about your preacher. The preacher from our church here is retiring next month and everybody is talking about him too. Keep reading and studying!!

Hi Margaret,

It was very interesting to read about you and what you have to do so early in the morning. Your church service sounds just like mine when I was young, even though we live on other sides of the world - I'm in New Zealand!

Hi Margaret,
It brought back many memories when I read about the Sunday church service on your blog. We enjoyed our times in church with all of you and miss you very much. Train hard for the marathon and keep up your studies. Many blessings,
Mr. John
