Efa velona Jesosy!

I never cease to marvel at the ability of the Malagasy to sing. A 1000 member choir is what the church service amounted to this Easter. Wonderful, even without understanding more that a smattering of the words. Of course, the offering was a bit long with everyone needing to go around the plate, including another 300 children. But all are dressed for Easter, with 20 infants being baptized all in white.

Every church service here includes an auction, sigh. I remembered that, I was hoping it would have died out. They do enjoy it, ribbing each other and paying too much for what they buy. Most items are food donated, such as corn, rice, or bread.

Efa velona Jesosy! He is risen indeed!
