Here are some recent pictures from our celebration of the holiday, Eid, with our friends and neighbors.

We offered our home, and Mariam’s family (a group of 16+ women and children) offered their cooking skills.  They cooked for 50+ people by setting a giant pot over three cooking stones and lighting a fire in our garage.

Traditionally, on this holiday, a family slaughters a live goat and feasts together.  We had some difficulty finding a goat at the last minute, so we settled for beef from the butcher.

We invited this family from a village nearby.  This Mzee (respected old man) brought two of his three wives.  This special family is very dear to us.

They are leading a group which is reading word of God together with their close neighbors.
