Homestay - Day 3
We got up early and at 7 a.m. went to a neighbor’s house to greet a newly married couple. They were married in Lusaka and had just come Petauke for the first time to meet the mother-in-law. It is the custom for everyone in the neighborhood to come and greet them, give encouragement, and leave some money. Seems like a great idea to me.
Later, we went to church and heard Pastor Amos give a good message in two languages. He admitted later that it was hard to keep his place. Two choirs – the women’s and the youth—blessed us with their singing. Again I say, I have never heard anyone sing like the Zambians. It is just heavenly.
