Equip Prep! Portuguese! Podcast! Slides! Mission!

Tim A. Cummins @ 9:16 pm  

Spent time this morning analyzing the schedule for this weekend. I found out how many people will be in my three sessions. I’m not a big fan of the buffet approach. Seems like we are all in competition, but both of my sessions will be recorded, so that’s good!

Studied Portuguese! Pouco a pouco!

Also reviewed verb forms. Easy to let that slip away without constant review. Same for Bible verses!
Recorded a new edition of Verbal Surgery! That always makes me feel better. “Rah, Rah, RAW!” is super enthusiastic. I need to have an extra six on reserve for when I’m out of town in the UK in November.

Worked on my slide show for the Equip Conference this weekend. Wow! It turned out a lot harder than I thought it would be. I had the “hard part” done, I thought! Which was the creating and putting the slides in order.

For some reason the projector was taking the slides and putting them in another order. I finally figured out that numbering from 1-23 doesn’t work. It goes from 1 immediately to 11, then 12 until 19, then goes to 2! Jesse said the way I had them is called “natural order” In order to make the numerals work they have to be number 01, 02, 03 . . . .

I made it work by using letters instead. I talked to Jesse AFTER I’d figured out a way to make it work!
I also needed to practice with the hardware to make sure I completely understood how to use the project, the controller and how to set it up.

I left the projector out. I’ll set it up and practice a couple more times just to make sure I have it completely wired in.

I’m still deciding whether to use slides for my prayer session. I probably will use props instead. May I may work on that tomorrow.

Gassed up my car. Still high prices.
Worked with the kids at the mission.
We had a volunteer today, so that was helpful.

I spent most of my time wandering around following after Penelope. She LOVES it there! SO many kids to play with and they all adore her!

I took the Kendalls out for Taco Veloz.

Then we had the boys help move the furniture in! Many hands, little labor!

We always have treats to say “Thank you!”

I enjoyed talking with my friend Pat Young today. It’s his birthday.
