Interview with Chris: Death & Dying
Answer: At first I was taken aback by this because it’s so different than what is customary in the United States, but after experiencing it I can understand the reasons for it, which I don’t know all of them, but here are a few examples: due to the small size of the cemetery, the relatively short amount of time needed a body decays due to the warm weather, the benefits of having family members be buried so close together, etc…. Therefore it doesn’t seem so strange to me now. With seven being the perfect number, the fact that’s it’s seven years and seven bodies...it does seem pretty perfect.
Missions has definitely effected us. It's hard to know exactly how we've changed, but I thank God for all the work He's done in us these last few years. Although I know there are tough days ahead, I look forward to what Jesus has in store.
