Sunday -Wedding Day

This morning we went to Grace Baptist Church for the day, the church was prepared for a wedding, due to take place after the normal service.

The first part of the service was as usual, with singing, prayers and two sermons,

then the wedding service started. It was different to an English wedding as the Pastor addressed the bride and groom first then the vows were taken.

At the end of the service, the ushers and bridesmaids came round the whole congregation handing out gifts of chocolates. Afterwards we had lunch at the church with the Pastor.

We then went out to down town Odessa sightseeing.

We walked across town past the Opera House to the seaport where we stopped for a break at a cafe.

Then posed for a team photo

Tomorrow we start work - with boxes of tiles waiting to be laid
