Advent in Magomeni, Mtwara

Inside our parish church there is this wooden statue of the Blessed Virgin and Jesus. It's seven or eight feet tall. The base consists of a ring of people looking upward at them. I love the design and wish I could adequately convey in photos the verticalness of the statue when you are right in front of it, towering over you.

Below, just after a weekday morning service.

During the week we have been singing the following to start the Mass.
Njoo kwetu, Masiha
Njoo, Bwanda, utuopoe

Come to us, Messiah
Come, Lord, save us
