After returning from Abango, the village where the Oil of Gladness piggery project is taking place, I decided to invite a few families over for some cooking lessons and fellowship. The skies were grey and I just knew that rain was going to keep us indoors. (Oh, by the way... our first sow has mated!! I think babies might be on the way! It's been a slow process, but someday we hope the piggery project will make money.)
Sam and Moses read my Aunt Roely's pizza dough recipe, and with lots of guidance from yours truly, they were able to roll out some very yummy crusts. Harriet and I watched as these men got excited about their cooking lessons.
I also made banana muffins with the children, and a avocado/banana milkshake to accompany the day. Through this whole time of baking, the men also wanted to roast pork, so we seasoned it really well and put it in the oven after all the other baking was finished.
Anticipating snack time...
Ta... Da... Minced meat and pepperoni pizzas
After the boys put the pizzas in the oven, I slyly told them that I had actually never made a crust from scratch before... so well done guys!!
Victor can't wait to try this western food!
Serving it up...
And chowing it down!
Everyone was willing to try.
What is a day indoors without a little bit of drama?
And a few good laughs
As the children went back to the playroom, four of us adults went through another "Meet Me at the Burning Bush" devotional reading by Peggy Forrest. It is so beautiful to know that we can crawl up into God's lap when the world seems so topsy-turvy, and share our joys and burdens with Him. We loved Zephaniah 3:17 "The Lord your God is with you, He is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you, He will quiet you with His love, He will rejoice over you with singing."
Later in the evening we called everyone back together in the sitting room. And had a great time of worship. The kids all had a shaker, tambourine, or drum and they really kept the rhythm.
Actually, this was the afternoon worship time... in the evening the power was out, so we sat around by the light of a solar lantern, munched on roasted pork and cucumbers, and had more worship with just shakers and drums. In the dark we worshipped the Lord together and I praised God for the fellowship of the saints. What a great day of breaking bread together!
