We went to our new friend Rosalia's church this morning, which she describes as a skeleton church- (the building, not the people.) It was lovely to hear the choruses and harmonies, and we mumbled our way through our own little talks that we had been asked to share. The translation was incredible, seamlessly moving from Kiswahili, to Luo, to English and Luhya, using various Bibles and speakers. We were invited to a lovely smiley lady, Margaret, for lunch, and felt quite overwhelmed with the welcoming culture and the importance of greeting and handshakes. There was a choir in the church and they sang a 'welcoming song' as we walked to Margaret's home, and again as we walked back to the car. Rosalia said that in the Luo culture you start saying goodbye in the morning and you leave in the evening...
