A Church Day in Gaborone, Botswana
Beth, Anita, Leyda, and I went to church on Sunday in downtown Gaborone. It was a real eye opener. I always pray I will make it to heaven. I imagine all of my loved ones waiting for me and getting to meet my ancestors. The service was fantastic. The priest looked like Chris Rock, and my favorite part was the sign of peace because you could feel the love in the air when everyone was greeting each other. When the service ended, a true Botswana part of the church began. Our group was given the opportunity to adopt four children for a day. We did! The church has around 130 orphans. They raise money to allow the orphans to have a fun day. I was so impressed at how much the community is doing to take care of each other, and I feel blessed to have been a part of it for a day.
