For the fourth day in a row, we made the long journey out to Domingo Community. But this time was to join with them in celebration at the church that Pastor Lawrence established there a few years ago.
I have said this before, but if you have never heard the singing in an African church, there are no words I could use to describe it. You will just need to come and see. Let’s just say that none of us wanted it to stop.
We sang and we danced. We danced and we sang. And then it was time to talk. Alan and Amelea both did very well sharing in the service. Pastor Julia and I then “tag team” preached the sermon on being an original and not just what people say you are. I call it “The 2 Kwacha Cup”.
Before we left, the community reduced its native chicken population and provided us with a great lunch – chicken, rice, nshima, veggies and sauce. Hospitality has never tasted so good!
We had a few minutes to relax this afternoon before our preparations for the 10 year anniversary celebrations with about 70 volunteers tomorrow. This is the day I have been looking forward to since we announced this trip.
