|Choir with new robes|
Several surgeries were done the day before Christmas including two for ruptured uteri.
Dolores spent the previous almost two weeks working most of night and day making about 25 choir robes for the church. She measured each person in the choir so the robe would be right for them. I made a closet 48 inches x 80 inches x 22 inches for the choir robes to be hung in. The wood boards are rough and crooked so require lots of trimming and planeing to get the boards to fit together to look decent. I sprayed some insecticide especially on the bottom hopefully to prevent termites eating it up quite so fast. They had a "concert" yesterday with their new robes and loud drums and steel guitar that you could probably hear for a kilometer with lots of joyous dancing in the church. I think they had religious words but I have not learned to appreciate their music style.
The main holiday here is New Year which the "fet" lasts for several days. Often there is no internet or telephone about that time also.
May all have happy and prosperous new year. We are now one year closer to when Jesus will return to claim His children and take them home. Matt 24:14
