Yesterday we had a special day to honor the mothers of the church. In the evening service all of the men, young people and children had special parts in the service. The young people did a drama showing how much mothers really do every day. The men sang a special song, and some children had poems to read. We were pleased to have about 30 mothers in attendance.
Mother's day is a major holiday in Peru. It ranks right up there with Christmas. Restaurants are jammed packed with people taking mom out for the day. Traffic also backs up near all the cementaries with people going to place flowers on their mother's grave.
It was a special day when we all reflected on the blessing that God gave us through our mother.
