Baby Celebration in Xipamanene

It was a joy to be part of Rosalva's baby celebration this last week in Xipamanene. Baby Cacilda, who doesn't always look so alarmed, was a being a bit fussy, so the women made sounds to try and get her to smile, and instead she came out looking positively terrified.

Rosalva is part of the church in Xipamanene, and the church came to support, sing and pray for her, share from the Bible, and give some gifts.
