The 1st Sunday we were in Lubumbashi was Stake Conference.  We arrived 45 minutes before it was to start and found that the chapel and most of the cultural hall were already full of faithful Saints!  In fact there was a 50 voice chorus who sang as prelude music, during the meeting, and as postlude music with an enthusiasm and volume that would be hard to equal.  The meeting was great!  Here are a couple of photos of the meeting and of the kids on the lawn following the meeting.

After a week at the mission home, we were sent to Bujumbura, Burundi.  It is a beautiful, green country whose people still bear the scars of the massacres between the Tutsis and the Hutus.
We went shopping for fish not long after we arrive.  We found a nice sangala fish from Lake Tangynika.  It was swarming with flies, but fresh nonetheless!  The vendor filleted it for us on the spot.
