My daily schedule looks about like this: Arrive at the school before 7:30 and sit with the students (36 in total) as they finish breakfast.
The main building on the campus of the Wesleyan Bible College in Xai Xai, Mozambique
My little bffs Japheth and Irasmo
At 9:30 I join the students for tea, bread, and fellowship. 6 or 7 speak English very well, and my portuguese vocabulary is always extended. On Mon, Wed, and Fri we have chapel from 10 to 11, but on Tues and Thurs I teach English. From 11 to 1 I assist Grandma Sue (an Australian missionary nurse) in teaching Community Health. It is really surprising (and sad) how little the students understand about even handwashing and basic sanitation.
Quite - he truly believes in his heart that he will marry an American, so I promised to show his picture to all my friends
We have lunch (rice & beans, or fish & shima) at 1:00 and start chores at 2:00. For chores I have done a variety of things such as: transplanting and watering grass, sweeping the paths, and burying trash. I always have a good time chatting with the students that I'm working with - teaching English, learning Portuguese, comparing our cultures, and sometimes singing. I will be very sad to leave them this weekend.

Tomorrow I will be preaching at Joao and Idenia's church. I will be preaching on Matthew 6:33 and "Putting First Things First". Thank you for your prayers!
