Then each of the church choirs sang and sang.
Then children from each of the churches quoted scriptures. I was SO proud of my Mayoka kids... they quoted all 66 books of the Bible!
The pastor of Kitongo, John Mbugua preached while Mariamu and I taught 40-ish children, ages 8 and under, out under a tarp.
Then came the FOOD! Each of the churches pitched in for rice and beans, and Bill Brouwer bought a cow. They slaughtered the cow early that morning and a group of some 20 people worked on preparing the meal while we were in church.
Lots of people sacrificed a lot of time and money for this Christmas celebration. Thanks to our host church, Kitongo. Thanks to Bill for the cow and providing transportation for the 3 churches. Thanks to Pastors John and Pele for working through all the details of such a big event. It's such an encouragement for all our churches who are still young in the faith, to be a part of something big, to get out of their own village and join other believers they don't even know in praise of a common Savior!!
