International Womans Day

March 8th is Woman’s Day.  It is celebrated in over 100 countries in the world.  I am not sure how it is celebrated in other countries of the world, but here in Burkina Faso this day is a time to honor, respect and love our wives and mothers.

Even though things in Burkina have changed and are changing the man still dominates.  The woman might not be considered a slave but many times she isn’t much more than that.  We have seen a great change in many of our church people over the years.  We have tried our best to teach the man to love his wife.  God has done a great work.

Today, many of the men will go to the market, buy the goods, come home and cook for his wife.  The last few years we have cooked for the woman of the church, at our house and then delivered the meal to them.  This year the women decided to have a ladies meeting at the church and the men decided to cook for them.  We made them beef nuggets (chicken isn’t easy to get) and macaroni (African style).  I think the woman were impressed that the food was actually edible.
