Yes, this is THE weekend! After over 6 months of weekly classes, weekly homework assignments and a very tough research paper --- they made it! Graduation is this Saturday night!
The Mobile, Alabama school director, Randy, and his wife, Charlotte will be arriving sometime Friday and will have a wonderful certificate of completion for each student.
Saturday evening we will all gather at our house, their families with them, and enjoy a time of fellowship and celebration for all their hard work and dedication.
We have some very special entertainment lined up for the evening and are being very careful to not "let the cat out of the bag" as to what/who it is! :)
So every day this week I am working toward Saturday night.
Today was some shopping and details lined up for the week.
Tomorrow is Bible study and maybe getting 1 of my 7 yards mowed. Depends on the weather as today has been quite stormy and very wet.
Wednesday is supposed to be clear so I hope to get all yards mowed and out of the way.
Thursday is shopping day for the final foods.
Friday is cleaning (oh no) and cooking. Randy and Charlotte arrive and hopefully we can get together for dinner.
And then Saturday is THE day!
Monty works at the mobile home park today, tomorrow and Wednesday. He also has to get materials ready for the tornado damage job he just got awarded. That's a job of reanchoring the entire mobile home and installing new skirting all the way around.
Our biggest need right now? Keeping both trucks running. Yesterday we got stranded when mine refused to start! My daughter picked us up and took us home where we could load up tools and jumper cables. It was really tough to jump but it did finally start and we made it to the shop where they said both the battery and alternador are good. Monty cleaned the motor and parts all afternoon and evening.
And then this morning --- well --- it choked and had trouble but it did finally start! I have prayed over it and demanded satan get his nasty little fingers out of it!!!!!
A busy and exciting week! It's been such an honor for us to facilitate this missions training class and we want each student to enjoy the celebration! God has special plans for each of them! How awesome!
Until next time . . . blessings to all. Susan and Monty
