Mwimbila

On Fridays I travel to Kisanga to see the new Stake Center being built, and on Mondays, I travel to Mwimbila to see the new chapel being built there.

Mwimbila LDS Church (7) Here is a line of classrooms being built

The steel for the roofing was just being installed

They are doing a good job, with little qualified help: there are a few personnel from the Italian company that is running the project, a few locals that have some experience, and our group of return missionaries that are being trained.

There is a job for everyone… excess and unusable material (such as concrete, brick, etc.) is being hammered into smaller pieces to use for fill, then covered with soil, and compacted down– creating a slope in the terrain for water run-off (an important thing here during the rainy season). They don’t waste anything!
