We had another church service celebrating our local women’s group’s achievements in wonderfully basic things like memorization of verses and the books of the bible. There is always alot of pomp and circumstance as they are awarded their ribbons to attach to their sashes. Oh, if you could have seen the pure joy in their faces and seen their dancing!!! The ululating calls and the spraying of perfume all over everyone were evidence of the excitement and joy. Here are the ladies being prayed over and blessed.
There are always official invitations sent out for such occasions, and of course the invitees need to get gussied up. Here’s our friend, Jeanette, dressed up, sitting at the meal provided after the ceremony. I couldn’t pass up the Kodak moment, with her beautiful blue outfit!
