Finally, in our corner of the world we are getting rain, the remnants of Isaac the Hurricane. The people in New Orleans got it again! In one of the pictures of the flooded streets you could barely see the top of the roof of a house. Some people lots everything again, after the experience with Katrina five years ago.
I hope none of those people had an office full of books and teaching materials they had been collecting for fifty years, which is my case. It would be serious business if my office got flooded! I guess I’d have to start over. As for now, I’m just happy I’m not the one with a flooded house, but I sure feel sorry for those hit by the hurricane.
It’s raining. But this is some other kind of rain.What’s raining on the bride and the groom? I guess it’s the customary rice!
My friend Julio Rojas, pastor in Ayacucho, Peru sent me these pictures from a wedding he conducted in one of the mountain villages in the Andes. I will do my best to give them to you in the right order.
Here is the couple returning home after the ceremony and the party. Sorry to say, like many couples today, they had been living together. Julio helped them formalize their union.
Maybe some other time Julio will let it “rain” some more pictures into my mail box. It’s not every day we get to see pictures from way up in the mountains. How do I know? Because of the lonely trees in the background.
It’s still raining.
In a few days I might have some green grass!
