Celebrating Worker’s Day – May 1st

Worker’s Day is the same as Labour Day in Canada…and here in Mozambique on holidays people like to get together for a festa (party)! This typically involves…food, loud music, hanging out together and of course, dancing! Joao (our Mozabican missionary) hosted a small party with some of our workers to celebrate the holiday. I’m always up for a festa so I joined in…for the festa part…I let all the guys do the work and cooking! ๐Ÿ™‚ Okay…so I did help out a little. It was fun to just spend time with them listening to their stories (I’m so happy to know enough Portuguese to understand the conversation), joking around, eating good food, dancing, and then schooling them in badminton! We played workers against me and my sponsor students…they didn’t win a game against us. A very memorable and fun day!

The chicken plucking crew…I was very happy to avoid that!

    Hi, Janette!

    We’ve enjoyed your photos, updates and blog!

    We have some chickens of our own these days, and are getting almost 2 dozen eggs each day as a little business for Amanda, Jillian, and Trinity.

    Looking forward to seeing you in the fall, and praying for your ministry,

    Meg and the rest of the Cross Crew
