Howdy my friends. I have a quick question for you – I have been doing this blog for a while now and would like your suggestions on how to improve it or encouragement to keep on doing something you like. Comment here or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Today was great in Malakal. I met a ton more people, went to an Arabic church, into town for food, hung out with the family and just enjoyed the day. The church was great, tons of singing – videos to come when I have a better internet connection. The whole church would sing, then there were opportunities for groups of people representing each of the tribes to come forward and sing… which meant all the white people got a turn. So the six of us, my brother, sister in law, Avery, and 2 other missionaries on the property headed to front and did our best rendition of O Come Let Us Adore Him. It was a hit, at least I think it was. Though – following the AMAZING music from the tribes, we might have looked quite silly.
After church everyone files out and shakes every person’s hand. When you get to the end of the line, you join it and start shaking everyone else’s hand. I like that. Personally greeting everyone, even the teeniest kids. It was fun.
Here are some pictures from the day. Soon I hope to have some of the “Suk,” the local market in the city.
