My Mother’s Day

My last blog was written about my neighbor getting a pig for Mother’s Day. It turned out that I got part of one, too! The ladies group at our church had a Mother’s Day retreat on Saturday and we all went to church together Sunday morning. The women planned the entire church service and I’ll have to say it was one of the more lively services we have had in a long time.

After the morning service the men served a beautiful feast. They had even bought a pig, butchered it and cooked it in a traditional ground oven style. There was lots of food and in a very atypical fashion they served the women first! (Normally the women do all the work, serve the men children and men first and sometimes there is almost nothing left for the women.) It was a really encouraging time.

We love our church and are so thankful for the wonderful friends who we enjoy being with.
