Our activities included such things like fetching water from the community pipe in large (and small) water containers...carrying rocks (on our heads) to a house that one of the members was building with her family, sharing a meal, and learning how to weave with sisal.
My finished ring! Florida (sp? sounds like "floor ee da"), my teacher, made me a beautiful one as well.
I think my favorite thing about our trip to visit Abarikumwe were all the times we prayed. When we arrived, we prayed. Before we ate, we prayed. And then, before we left, we prayed. I love that. It was as if prayer was their greeting.
Praying with visiting friends before they set off for home is a beautiful tradition...one that the hubbs and I may want to make our own.
