Today, everything changed. We left Lagos at 8am and flew to Enugu. From there we traveled 2 hours to our next hotel. It was a totally different level of hotel. It’s a bit rougher. We are at the best hotel in the town a “resort”. It’s $65 a night.
After we put our bags down and had lunch we headed to our first village. It was a one hour drive into the woods. The land is jungle-type rolling hills. We drove through several villages. People walking everywhere. We drove up to a small mud church building probably 50′ by 20′. Inside was PACKED, every square inch with people. They were singing loud and dancing as much as they could in the tight space. They had been waiting in the building for 4 hours for us to get there. Some people had walked up to 12 miles to get there. It was such a culture shock, it was difficult to know what to say. They were so inquisitive. After it was over we took a group pic. Tomorrow we will go to several villages and baptize in the river. I’m not getting in the water. I will be supporting from the side!! Amen!
I hope to have a video update tomorrow.
