Thrown Into the Lion's Den

Last Sunday all the Baptist churches in Soroti met together for a mass celebration.  Starting at 10 am the crowds were so huge that the children we sent off the chairs to sit on mats under the tree.  I decided to join the children, since I wouldn't be staying for the whole service.  Ugandan friends quickly asked me to come to the kitchen to get communion plates ready, and I unexpectedly joined the choir for one very fun African song - "Siyabonga Jesu"
 The children joined the adults for worship, testimonies, and special presentations, which took almost two hours before we walked over to the church for Sunday School.
 From there, I along with my delightful and faithful friends - Peter and Teddy, we taught 140 children the story of Daniel in the Lion's Den.  I always love telling stories to the children!  All of these kids were 8-12 years old... we sent the younger ones to another place, with 3 of their own teachers as well.  Huge classes.
 The children made paper plate masks of lions.
And wrote on the back "Obey God - Be Wise, True, and a person of prayer!" 
It was such a fun Sunday - the whole service finished at 4:30, after sharing a meal together.
 Serving rice pilau to all the children
A late lunch
And even later for the teachers.  :)
