Day 626 – USA (CALIFORNIA): A touch of the Middle East


Thanks to Mike and Anita, friends of Kirk and Donna, I made it to a church service at The King’s Harbour Church in Redondo Beach this morning. It was a great service, that among other things, introduced some amazing individuals and families working to help the not-so-fortunate in countries in various regions of the world. Among those were two couples planning on going to Northern Iraq.

They had a very interesting display set up, serving tea and giving henna tattoos in a local Iraqi fasion.

Kids from church were scrambling to get theirs. Not-so-traditional lizard and spider patterns were a favourite amongst the boys, whereas the girls were more interested in the traditional patterns.

My host for the day, Anita, got her own henna tattoo…

A great chance to see what Christians are up to around the world these days.

On the way home Mike and Anita took me for a short drive up to Palos Verdes, an amazing community way up on the cliffs south of Redondo Beach. two to ten million dollar homes overlooked an amazing sea view above the cliffs. Thank you Mike and Anita for a wonderful morning!
