Last Sunday we were going to visit a church up in a village . The church was 100 km away from the ship so we started at 07:30 am. Nine people in a land rover for more then to hour. On the way up there my boss ho were driving asked the guy ho invited us" ho is going to speaking today ? " . He answered " you are ". So then he had to prepare a spike wail he was driving.

Wen we come to the church everybody was waiting for us. They placed us all the way in the front facing everybody . Then we had to rise up en tell over name and were we come from and what we do on the ship. After the spike there was African offering were everybody dancing up with there money. We were going outside wail they were still singing cas we were going to another church. ( we didn't know that . After 30 minutes driving we were in the next church. They were waiting us. They also placed us in the front facing the church. And we had to stand up again an tell our story. After some singing/dancing we went outside to take pictures with the church members .
