The mission president agrees with us and has told Kinshasa his opinion. We now wait to see if the weight of the mission president's wishes will help the building committee see the light.
Sister Van Wagoner has been teaching a group of members how to sew using sewing machines. It has been a great project, and the culmination of this class was a fashion show where each class member modeled what he/she had made. It was a lot of fun and some much needed recognition for the students in the class!
The elders had a soccer game with the branch missionaries at this field. I include it as a way to show the rural nature of Bujumbura and the beautiful hills in the background.
We shared the large area where the soccer match was being played with several "cows." Love their horns!
Here are 2 of our sister missionaries. After a bit of the soccer match, we left and took the sisters to get lunch, as the elders had not included the sisters in their plans.
