Christmas party at Wone

This Christmas party was at the church structure for Wone Branch. We arrived 3 hours late due to some missionary responsibilities and we only missed a few minutes of the program. They were giving out gifts, but before the person could claim their gift they had to do a crazy dance. We brought candy for the kids so they performed a song just for us that they wrote. They are so cute. I took a picture of the little girl with fancy jewelry and her hair made so pretty. She stuck by my side all evening.
Then we were served a heaping plate of food. I'm holding up a fish, tail and all. The plates are hand woven with Banana leaves. They invited us to a Family Home Evening in a couple of weeks where they will teach me to make them.
This was a very competitive volley ball game. When I asked who had won, both sides claimed victory. They could easily compete very well in the States. When you leave you feel well loved.
