Ihbeleg's Dedication Reception

Over the last (almost) six years, I have given various types of receptions for each of my grandchildren. It is one of my joys to celebrate everything with a party. On Mother’s Day afternoon, I gave a reception for my newest grandson, Ihbeleg Dale Gombojav. He was dedicated to the Lord at Harvest Rock Church in Pasadena, California, in their morning service.

This was a dessert reception. I served Coconut Cream Cake with Lemon & Lime Filling, Brownie Fudge Bites, Greek Butter Cookies, and Caramel Cream Cookies. I also had a cheese and fruit platter that included grapes, strawberries, dried apricots, Chèvre, Brie, and Cheddar. Hazelnut coffee, red tea, and limeade were our beverages.

Meg performed a worship dance to “Be Thou My Vision” with her Titi (Auntie Sarah-Kate).

I was amazed at how many people showed up. Remember, Gana and Daja have only been in Pasadena for less than five months. Represented that day were members of their church home group, a co-worker of Gana’s, couples from their community group, Fuller students, relatives, pastors of a Mongolian church in Los Angeles, Mongolians, a doctor (and her brother) from the Ivory Coast, and friends from childhood that now live in Pasadena. They are definitely surrounding themselves with a community of friends.

Little Belgee (one of his many nicknames) was handsome in the cute white outfit his godmother, Carey Plowman, bought him. I think he enjoyed basking in all the attention.

It was a good day.
