We have been enjoying more weddings lately--we love to celebrate with these Nigerian people as they really know how to celebrate. Early in May we attended the wedding for Tola and Tunde here in the Ikeja building.
Here is the happy couple:
Some of the nicest decorations we have seen

Some of the choir from the wedding ceremony in the chosen fabric and colors for the day. The one with the green around her waist is Anita, one of the first PEF students we helped. She is becoming a fashion designer (a seamstress) and made the other dresses. It was so wonderful to see the work she is doing and the progress she is making.
She even made a matching tie for Mark!
This is the bride's nephew, Mannaseh, in traditional Yoruba wear. We met him in Port Harcourt on our first visit and he became fast friends with Mark.
Some of the crowd at the wedding--most dressed in colorful traditional clothes.
Mark with some of his many friends here--Doctor/Bishop Hassan, President Imo, Mark, Elder Olukanni and Charles Adebayo--all wonderful men we have met and worked with.
Just had to add this picture of Charles Adebayo and his wife, Jennifer--our very good friends and guests at the wedding. Doesn't she look beautiful in her traditional dress?
