The choir performed at New Dimension Church on Saturday and boy was it an emotional, exciting and a fun experience that reminded me of how blessed I am and the importance of counting one's blessings before complaining about what one lacks
The children were animated and sang beautifully

Mambo Sawa - Life is Good
Hakuna Wakaita Sa Yesu - There is no one like Jesus
They actually sang Hakuna Wakaita Sa Yesu using the same tune as we do when we sing "Ha hona ya tshwanang le Jesu" so there I was singing ka SeSotho, whilst they sang in Swahili and the rest of the people were singing in English.
After the concert...

On Sunday we attended church, the praise and worship was AAA-HH-MA-ZING!! The Watoto's Children Choir attended the service and sang a couple of songs as well. There was a guest speaker, Pastor Bill Johnson and his message was titled "Small Beginnings Turn Into Large Adventures" and we read from the following books:
- Numbers 14v38
- Luke 13v18-21
- Luke 17v20-21
- 2 Corinthians 4v7
He made an example of yeast in the baking process and went on to say that small amounts of yeast make a huge difference in the success of the bread; and so it should be in our lives.
- Small prayers of faith should change our realities.
- The heat in the baking process activates the agent (yeast) and in our lives; bad situations should make us stronger and better believers at the end of it all.
- He closed off by saying that super abundance in DUE TIME#patience. You are not forgotten!!
After the sermon, Conceptia and I attended the Cape Verdean festival which is an annual event. The festival consisted of live performances, DJs, stalls and beautiful people. The Cape Verdeans are truly a beautiful nation. Their men are GORGEOUS and their women equally BEAUTIFUL. The weather was lovely, the venue was gorgeous as it was right by the water and I had too much fun#bliss
