On Sunday several of us went to one of the local churches. The people were extremely friendly and hospitable. One of the pastors spoke English, so he translated the service the entire time. African church is very different from church in the U.S. For one thing, the services are much longer (averaging around 4 hours). Several different people give a message, not just one pastor. Praise and worship is much more energetic. They had all of us dancing up front during a few songs!
I really enjoyed the messages, the worship, and the people. I definitely want to go back soon!
