Cooking with the Sisters

Today the team attended the ordination of 11 new priests for the local Archdiocese which consisted of a 5 hour Mass and reception. Then they headed back to Anawim to help out the Sisters with the daily activities around the compound. Most of the Sisters are preparing to depart for their annual week-long retreat so more of the responsibilities around Anawim Home will fall on the team members. Lisa and Christy helped the Sisters bake bread and prepare other foods for dinners this weekend. The Sisters will also cook food which will then be delivered to poor of Gwagwalada as well as a leper community. Rob, Brian and Nick helped capture and prepare a goat, which will be part of tomorrow night's dinner. Everybody is feeling well and is finally feeling completely adjusted and settled in.
