We are always trying to find good homes to rent for the missionaries here. It is difficult to find them in the areas they are assigned to work. Recently we found a home we will be moving 6 sister to, that is right in the middle of three areas (one area/ward for each set of missionaries– the Pres. is trying to put a set of missionaries in each ward in the Congo). In addition, the home is just a few houses away from Bishop Justin (who works in our mission office). It was quite a find, and a beautiful home.
Unlike many missionary apartments, this one has a water tower and tank so that they will always have water available.

They have an outdoor kitchen area
As well as an indoor kitchen
Here are the owners putting up the curtains in the salon.
There are four bedrooms, and two bathrooms

Well for the house. This house has both city water and a well, although the well will be used most of the time, as it is more reliable than the city water
Cover to the well in front of the house.
This will be a home that is used for a long time, as it is located in the center of three districts. Since we have additional sisters coming on missions, we continue to look for homes for the missionaries.
