better books....

Well, we finally sent off the 50 bags to Darwin... All bagged and labeled.  The lovely folk from Palmerston stashed them in their bags for us yesterday afternoon as they headed home.  Sinta took today off, as she worked pretty hard last week getting them all ready.
So last night I was thinking...hmm, what shall she do now?  I dont really want to pay her wages just to potter, the uniform and bag sales to locals have slowed down, and Im not quite up to fully marketing/canvassing our cloth pads.... 
Anyway, im not sure i even offered it up as a verbal prayer, but God must have heard my sigh, cause this morning who should appear?

Sweet Beth from the library in Ermera...can she order 15 more cloth books for the library?  The people love them!  And while your at it another 2 for personal use....
Wow.  She even returned later this afternoon to pay a deposit, so we can source some fabric and get started ASAP!!!
She also asked if Sinta would be willing to run a workshop for a sewing group there.  teaching them how to make the books.  They will cover her wage for the day and any material costs.  It just seems to keep coming.  Im really not putting a lot of effort into it myself as i am just trying to cope at re-adjusting and focusing on educating the kids, and feeding us all.  Meals and school are about all i can cope with.  (Not that i am doing an exceptionally good job at either of them?)  So I am so grateful that God seems to be doing the legwork and finding work for Bellekria!
