An Introduction Ceremony

On Saturday (08/03/2013) we went to an introduction.  It was fun but, as I’m coming to expect in Africa, LONG.  An introduction is just an engagement party but really fancy.  It’s basically just like a wedding.  The bishop dressed me up in a formal African robe and said that now I looked sharp.  Okkkkkk.  Needless to say I was the only white guy dressed like an African.  As a matter of fact, not only was I the only white guy dressed like an African, I was the only white guy period!!  I did make an impression. I got a lot of looks – some good, some I’m not so sure of.

At the introduction is where the couple give each other their engagement rings.  Some how I got asked to pray over the rings and for God’s blessing of the rings.  Worst prayer for rings ever I’m sure but only about 3 people could under stand my English so everyone seemed happy.

Yes, every day in Africa can become an adventure!!!!
