8th Day into our trip
So much has happened I don't know where to start from my last blog on 1 October. The finally to the Celebrations was on Sunday 2nd Oct. What a day a 7 hour service in 100 degrees, hot, hot, hot. I was privileged to assist with the Holy communion and I lost count of the hundreds I offered the bread to and children I blessed. I think it was an unusual experience for them to have a white women priest. Songs were sung, words were preached, distinguished guests from the government and local councils spoke and then the greatest shock was when I was called to the alter by the Bishop Jacob to be extended the honour of becoming a Canon of All Saints Cathedral, Mpwapwa. This was in front of over 1000 people, children and guests. WOW! and then I had to speak to them. I am just so pleased that I was not informed beforehand that this was going to happen. I shall never forget this day.
