A Rainy New Year = A Blessed New Year

Today, the first of January, the work was in full swing. The diapers were hanging outside on the clothes lines, the children were playing in the garden, the baby's were fed on the Veranda and the kitchen crew was cooking our New Year feast meal. Then the rain came...... It was really pouring, and for quite a while. The children and the Baby's were moved quickly inside and several people ran to get the clothes from the line and spread them out inside the house.
 Also the kitchen crew took shelter, but we were going to eat pilaw, it is rice with special spices and the meat inside. The best is to cook it on wood fire. But Elias knew the trick, he build a shelter around the enormous pot. Everything could be used, as you can see!! But it worked, the pilaw was ready in time and it tasted delicious!
We set up the food on the table and we sat on the veranda, because the sun came back and it was nice and warm again. The children played again in the garden, the baby's were back at the veranda and the diapers were back on the lines again! 
We had a great meal, with nice fellowship, children crying and playing. A good start of the New year!
And in Africa: Rain means Blessing!!!
