Swahili Anybody?


We went to church today with our new friends Wendy and Keith. There were people from Uganda, Rwanda, Nigeria, USA, Ukraine, Russia, Mauritania, India, Pakistan, Bahrain, Iraq, China, Cote D'Ivoire, Congo and so on.

We even got to hear the choir sing a Swahili song. This Ukrainian church had three African visitors several years ago who asked if they may attend services because no other church in this city of 1.5 million would allow them to worship because of their color. Today there were over 100 people of different races from over 20 countries attending services together. It was so nice to see so many smiling happy faces.

I have some incredible video I will post later.


PS Anybody in the mood for some FRESH FISH?
