Sunday in Africa



Back to Africa New Life for church.  We went to the "English" service, which was joyful. However, Steven, our driver assured us that there was much more dancing at the 11oclock service. We were brought up to the front of the service to introduce us and asked Andy to "share a word".  which he did.  Between the judge gig and the preacher gig, he may want to move here for the opportunity :)
We LOVED that Pastor Charles gave the congregation a charge to adopt and went on for 5 minutes about the beauty of adoption, encouraging them to do so locally. 
We took Drew home to nap and gave him his first bath which was hilarious! 
After dropping Drew off,  we went to Zen "Oriental" restaurant.  Highly Recommend!!  All the kids ran around by the water fountain, we sat under the thatched roof tents and had cocktails and great food.  We are really roughing it here in Africa.
