I Am the Very Model of a Modern Major General...

I have that song stuck in my head! We went to a Puppet Festival sponsored by OneWayStreet over the weekend and a very talented 17 yo girl ventriloquist's puppet, Jodie, sang that song for us. She did a great job!

Here are the lyrics in case you, like me, wonder what they are!

I am the very model of a modern Major-General

King's Kids September

This month we traveled to Africa and learned about the Mandinka people.

I used information from Helpmeet in the Making my dil's blog. Her sister is a member of the IMB and is a missionary to the Mandinka. Please pray for her and the work that is being done there.
I know I will and so will the children I teach.
