Recently we were invited to a Congolese Family Home Evening. The last time we went we were over an hour late because of horrible traffic. This time we left at 4:30 for a 6:00 appointment. There was no traffic, and we got there by 5:00. I figured it was rude for 8 elders and the 2 of us to show up an hour early, so I sent the boys over to play soccar with some neigborhood kids. The elders started playing with about 4 boys. Then the group of kids kept growing and the Elders just came alive. They played games, they sang old rock and roll songs in harmony, they told stories, they jumped, and then when it was 6:00, we all sang "I Am A Child of God" and said good-bye. It was sooooo much fun!
