The leader of the church in Chamanculo, Jorge, got married this past weekend.
I picked up Irmao Jorge, the one in the suit, and the other family members from his home on Saturday morning.
I noticed a new "short-term pet" in the yard...he was to play an important role in the wedding reception meal.
After the wedding ceremony on Saturday, there was a church service on Sunday, and then the special meal at the groom's home. The women from the Bible study that Fatima and I are doing in Chamanculo invited me to help with the cooking!
All the cooking was done in Pastor Jorge's yard, and at times there were five cooking fires going at the same time...most of us were crying from all the smoke.
I worked alongside of my good friends Fatima (right) and Victoria (left).
The bride and groom came into the yard accompanied by singing and dancing.
The bride, Virginia, symbolically carried a basin on her head, showing that she was now the working woman of the house.
