It's taken me awhile but I'm finally starting to make the family connections at our church.
It seems that everyone is related to someone else.
A lot like my high school. My best friend Alisha was related to almost every person in school. Most were distant relatives, family is family.
The same goes with our church. I've known a couple of family relations; some were obvious, such as youth with siblings. Then I learned that some of them were cousins.
I discovered two new relations today and they may be connected.
It's very interesting. You can ask some of the long-time members and they'll just shake their heads. If you ask about specific families, they will tell you. Otherwise you are left to figure it out on your own.
Which takes a few years.
I can't even keep up with my own family...
