There is a new couple


who has arrived in Bujumbura.  They are here to serve as Humanitarian missionaries.  He loves dancing and so, for a going away party for the Cahoon's, we held a dance in both buildings.  Everyone smiled and laughed and had such a good time.  It was just what the members needed.  They did not realize that we had fun times in the church.  We taught them to do the electric slide line dance, the chicken dance, the YWCA dance and a bit of a waltz.  At one of the branches, they had 3 young women perform a traditional native dance.  At the end, everybody sang "God Be With You Till We Meet Again" as the Cahoon's went around the room and greeted and kissed everyone 3 times on the cheeks.
After the dance, we took the elders for an ice-cream at a little market.

Earlier in the day, we taught our 1st English class.  It was fun!  The last thing we worked on was learning a hymn in English to perform for sacrament meeting.  The elders are so cute, and they sing as if to break your heart.  So good!

  1. Hello there!

    I just stumbled across your blog in looking for information on the Church in Burundi! My name is Jonathan Porter and I am a member from Canada coming to live in Bujumbura for work with an NGO. I will be arriving on May 2nd. I was hoping to get information on where the branches meet etc. Things look exciting in Burundi!
    Feel free to send me an email at jcoleporter@gmail.com. Look forward to meeting all of the members in Bujumbura!
