When I thought the ride might be over we got to a ferry - a flat bunch of boards on two canoes :). We got there around 10. I think we were supposed to start at 9. The principal was super nice. They had a little for us to eat. Ratana's mom had made us traditional khmer banana leaf wrapped banana rice things and there was water. We started class and although this was our least prepared event, everyone did great. Timing and everyone ended up great. We broke into 4 classes and did the sessions with the teachers rotating. And then at the end we gave out candy, tooth brushes, tooth paste and deworming medicine. Everyone was happy and thrilled. And mostly it was all new information. We did fire safety and no one knew to stop drop and roll, we did teeth brushing and they got to practice on our new set of teeth that we bought. We did hygiene and deworming with gross pictures of worms coming out of noses and stuff and of course helmet safety. They knew why they should wear their helmet, but hopefully the watermelon on the floor will help them really let it into their hearts. :)
Came home just as the afternoon class was starting. And then after class was on the phone for a long long time. Poor brenda. As much as she enjoyed her first three days here, now she is getting into the daily things and it's a lot more tiring :) she missed morning class this morning cause she was sleeping :)
Went shopping for food after that and I had cheetos for dinner as we walked the mall cause there was no electricity back home. Got home and we were both exhausted. 4 hours on the back of a motorcycle scared as could be hehe! But having to just leave it in God's hands tired us both out :)
Our new class and location is working out. Pray for our new teacher. I just want one to help Michael so he can be free to move around and do his thing. There is one who wants to charge full days wages for 2 hours of work and doesn't seem to see what is wrong with that and another who might do it for 1/2 the price and is just as good and I actually know her. Just pray we hire the right teacher to take over. Michael is great, but like me, he needs freedom to do other things as well as this.
Also, I need to sell everything, so please pray for that as well.
