Putnam City Baptist Church gives Ties and Scarves for Zambian Pastors and Wives

Our church family deluged us with ties and scarves after we shared our desire to take a special gift to each pastor and wife. We didn't take one tie and scarf but THREE ties and scarves for each person there.

We loved giving them, but not as much as they loved receiving them. Women most often bow their heads and even curtsy as they shake hands or receive a gift. They show honor and reverence in the demeanor of their culture.

After they received their gifts, some immediately put one on. They all celebrated with song and dance as they thanked God for the gifts from one church in Oklahoma City to The Church in Ndola, Zambia.
