On Sunday, the mission president came to Bujumbura to split the branch. Now there are 3 branches in Bujumbura and one across the lake in Uvira. The Church is so new here that he spent a lot of time teaching about what was going on. He explained about callings, about keys, about how we raise our hands to show we will support the new leaders, not to vote for them. He explained how we serve in a calling for a period of time and then someone else is given the opportunity to learn from that calling. Anyway, it was fun to see the Church growing.
In East Africa, the Church also has a humanitarian arm that works very hard to help the communities. Right now in our little area the Church's humanitarian division is building new latrines at two schools and teaching basic hygiene facts there. These are some photos taken at the sites of those projects.
