2 Timothy 2:15 Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved by him, a worker who has no need to be ashamed, rightly explaining the word of truth. 

Church is today and I am so excited. We had breakfast at 7:30 this morning and then relaxed until church at 10:00 am. Lucia was quick to bring out her Barbies to play with her new friends while some of the older girls had a photo shoot with Uncle John. It was a beautiful morning before church.

As we went into church this morning, it hit me how much I have missed fellowship and church. The first thing we did this morning was sing Noel and I found myself tearing up. My heart was so full to be in a place of worship that is done in English with people that share my faith in Jesus Christ. This service was filled with singing and praising God; it was beautiful and just what my soul needed.

After church Anjali had a group of kids playing Pass the Pig while David ran around the mission with the boys. It was a very relaxing and peaceful day.

At 4:30 Rick came to ask if Jeff and I wanted to join him for a Muslim wedding, to which I was happy to oblige (Jeff and I decided that it would be best if one of us stayed home with the kids). Auntie Peggy joined us, along with 3 of the older boys. We had about a 45 minute drive to the wedding, but this was such an amazing experience. Here are some pictures of the wedding.

with money for the bride.
