International Pentecost

Once again, far too long between posts, bleh.

Anyways, last week was pentecost, and my church decided to do an international theme for the service. We had readings and prayers in a wide variety of languages including Spanish, French, Malgasay, Korean, Chinese, etc, representing alot of the different nationalities we have at the church. Oh there was English and Japanese too, particularly for the English/Japanese bilingual sermon (that was way cool Takashi!). I contributed by singing Lobe den Herron (Praise to the Lord) in German! :D

Unfortunately the position of the camera and piano kind of drown out my voice a bit, but you get the idea. I've sung German in college before, and taken german in high school, so I think it worked out ok. I still don't get why 'den' is prnounced deen and 'der' is pronounced dehr, but whatever. It was fun, I look forward to my next chance to sing there again.

I hear its been quite hot over there, but we're still lucky to be in the 60s and 70s, more than likely thanks to the clouds and rain from the rainy season. Which means we're able to avoid planned outtages for now, so I'm counting my blessings. Also, I've only felt one significant earthquake since I returned from the US a month or so ago, so nice to feel a bit more stable. There's still talk of a huge after shock still on the way, but we'll deal with that when it comes I suppose. For now at least I'm well prepared with some of my furniture anchored down.
