Happy Mother's Day!!

Happy Mother’s day to all the Mums out there!

Last year on Mother’s Day, I was in Buka and the local church had a special service for it – although it was postponed, so our special Mother’s Day service was one week later than the actual day!

It was a lovely service. Most of the mothers dressed in white. You can see a few in this photo below.

The church was nicely decorated for the occasion as you can see in this photo and some of the other photos too.

There was a time for people to present items such as songs and dances. First the Sunday School children said sorry for all the bad things they have done to hurt their mother and the went around putting water on the mothers’ feet as a symbolic act. They used a branch from a tree, dipped in a bucket of water, to spread the water. You can see it here in this photo.

Here are some photos of the people doing items.

And lastly, the mothers. Theirs was the most entertaining. They entered from the back of the church carrying baskets on their heads and then they sang some songs and did actions with them. Everyone had a good laugh.
