I had my first Sunday in Bogota. I went to the church that I have been supporting and will be attending during my time here. It wasn't my first time there so it was nice to see familiar faces.

At the end of the service they presented me with flowers and a big welcome and asked me to say a little something. It was a bit nerve-racking but I succeeded in doing it all in Spanish AND they said they completely understood me. HAH!

One of the single moms at the church makes and sells Tamales for money. These are Colombian-style and boy are they good!

Then we went to the park with a huge group from the church and my big family. Its called the Simon Bolivar Park and its right in the middle of the city. Its beautiful and we simply sat around, played games, ate snacks and fellowshiped. All in all, I'd say it was a great Sunday!
