Africa #9

Pictures from Nyaragusu Camp. Sunday, October 26

They surrounded our car and welcomed us with singing and clapping


I was so overwhelmed I had to stay in the car for a while. I did not want to intrude on Msoshi and Rebeka's time. Msoshi came and got me from the car.


Look at this sea of people. There were 2700 at this church service. They held it outside because their church was not large enough to hold everyone.

Song leader.


Msoshi and Rebeka addressing the congregation.


Tithes

and offerings.
This is a bowl of flour. Some have nothing else to give.

Msoshi holding a grandson during the church service.




This gentleman was in a group they call the Infirm.


Widows

Orphans

This lady wanted to be sure I got a picture of this little orphan girl. After several tries, this was the best I got. She kept putting her hand up in front of her face.

Just me and a few new friends.

Gramma -

My 'blog time' is down, with so much to do around the house; I'm trying to get to all of your story...these photos are so humbling.

Keep on enjoying all those birthdays! I tell all my kids that they are 'my favorite' as a secret in their ear, and my husband gets after me. I love doing it, nevertheless!!!

I also just love how your title wraps around at just the right time on your header --- with the 'All Mine' emphasized on the second line.

LOVE IT!!!

Gramma,

I've read all that you have written about your trip, Dear. Everything that you did matters. God will use it. And He is using you. Every day.

Blessings, Gramma. Thank you for sharing so much of yourself with ALL of us.

Hey Gramma,

I just finished reading all your Africa posts.

What a mutual privilege it must have been to have your experience there with them and their experience of you. May the Lord give you wisdom on how to use this experience for His glory!
