The market was organized by the Canadian Network for International Surgery (CNIS). You can click on their badge on my sidebar and it will take you to their website if you'd like to learn more.
Here are some of my photos from the event. Unfortunately, I did not think to get a photo of the people selling food or of the dish I bought. I bought a dish of injera, cabbage with carrots and lentils. The spices MADE the cabbage and lentils divine.

|Pioneer Kenyan gospel singer, Mary Atieno Ominde and her husband, Alex Ominde, provided a short and rousing musical set of wonderful gospel music in Swahili. (Sorry for the poor photo quality).|

Events like this are always wonderfully uplifting and inspiring. During the gospel singing several African brothers and sisters danced for joy before the Lord. I thought I captured a lot of it on camera and was looking forward to sharing with you. However I found out my camera did not record. I did manage to capture one song (minus the exuberant dancing) on my phone. Once I upload it to youtube I will share it here. In the meantime, if you have not yet heard about Little Linet and her prayer and financial need, please read here. Thank you so much for your visit.
