March 8th is Women's Day in Uganda. Because it is a public holiday and all the staff are off today, we gave gifts to all the women staff on Wednesday during our weekly Bible Study.
|We have 49 women staff; here's shot of a group of them.|
|It is customary to kneel out of respect and gratefulness. The women always think it is funny when I kneel to them.|
|Fellow missionary, Shelia helped give out the gifts as well.|
|My legs always hurt after I kneel especially when I do it as long as I did this time. I started shaking my legs and told the ladies I don't know how they kneel for so long. Notice the laughter.|
What a fun day it was! The women of Uganda are incredible and I am so grateful to be able to work with so many of them.
A note: The missionary women were also honored as Mark made breakfast for all of us this morning.
