Maybe you can’t quite make them out, but these are parachutists, part of the air show here in Yaounde on Sunday. Not exactly my chosen method of celebrating, but it was fun to watch other crazies do it! There were fighter jets doing loop de loops and helicopters zooming about, so there were quite a few of us craning our necks into the bright sun to watch the spectacle from our yard. (Seeing planes on maneuvers always makes me say an extra prayer for our son, Sam, and fam, on the way to Lesotho soon with Mission Aviation Fellowship as an airplane mechanic.) Monday was a holiday, complete with a parade, but we were party poopers and didn’t go to the airshow or the parade. We enjoyed hanging out with friends and had a “waffles and worship” time Sunday morning, as our normal church site is way across downtown and because of the holiday wasn’t an option. We had Craig Swanson, pastor of Grand Rapids First Covenant as our guest speaker (thank you, internet). The fellowship was sweet among the 23 of us, as we pigged out on waffles and pancakes and all the trimmings and then were fed by Past. Craig.
