I'm finally feeling recovered enough from yesterday to write an entry about our meeting.
First of all, I had a wonderful time. About 50 people were there and we all packed in my living room and sat on the floor with a few people on the steps going upstairs.
We sang for a while and then O. gave a testimony. He shared a lot of wonderful things that God has been doing lately in our lives. One of them being, saving him and Praveen from a terrible motorcycle accident last Saturday. Praveen walked away from it without a scratch and O. only had a bruised foot. (If you hear him tell the story he was sure he lost it in the accident - he's totally better now.)
Someone spoke from the Word and then food. The two things I was nervous about finishing (drinking water and the special roti) didn't. But the 2 curries and 1 dahl (lentils) did get completely eaten. Three of us who served took the last few roties and used them to scrape food off the sides of the pots. It was enough. I can never eat after (during, before) one of these functions when I'm hosting. (I get that from my mother.)
Fellowshipping and feeding my friends and loved ones and sending them off with smiling faces and full bellies is satisfying enough for me. - Man, I could put that on a greeting card.
