Senior Sunday

Our church here has a special Sunday service to send our seniors off. This year, it was extra special. The elder in charge asked several prominent members of our congregation to wash the feet of our seniors. Here is Firstborn having her feet washed by the Ambassador to Turkey from Zambia. It really touched me deeply as I watched it. 

Her papa was introduced as a man who started and directs a premier international school in this city and has shaken the hands of presidents. He was happy to wash their feet as a symbolic act of serving brothers and sisters. 

They were each given a plaque with a Scripture engraved on it. 

And then the parents were called up to pray over them. I won't forget this service. It was wonderful!
