The two short videos posted here were shot by Pastor John Bosco, the father of the baby named after me. The first shows the beautiful ladies singing and dancing in a line to surprise me with the yam. The words of the song mean "Jesus is our happiness. He is with us today."
In the second, the ladies are gracefully exiting the building with me, the clueless old white woman, bringing up the rear and attempting to fit in.
To be honest, I considered not posting the exit video. It is not too flattering, but that's me. And it cracked me up! I hope you laugh, too.
It so fun to see the the reactions of the ladies who are onlookers!.
Several languages are spoken in Adjumani. The second song is in three languages (Madi, Kuku, and Lou) and are telling different tribes that we are all one in Jesus.
As far as the yam, we cooked part of it this morning. Its consistency and taste are similar to a russet potato. I ate some for lunch with butter.
