This event is so big that the whole city waits for the church to create the event and the dates, and then the city creates their whole calendar based around the church's calendar. Everywhere you go, you see Pentecostals. It is quite a lovely experience.
While I was in the south I also had the opportunity to visit Houston Texas, Baton Rouge, and the Mississippi river. I visited NASA, an art and planetarium, a large mall called Galleria which offers an ice skating rink for all it's visitors, and I even went shooting. Yes I can say that I have held and shot a gun. It was a bit overwhelming at first, but then I felt comfortable and felt like a Charlie's Angel.
I had a great time this last week, but I am also very happy to finally be home. I hope you enjoy all of the lovely pictures I took, and don't forget to watch my video wrap-up here.
