Kananga Street Markets

Part of my duties in Kananga was to go out to find water, bananas, and drinks, etc., for the Zone Conference and the group meal afterward. We had a hard time finding fruit of any kind (other than pineapples–which Kananga is famous for, but are hard to eat without making a mess), so we went through several markets. Here are some pics of the local markets we went through searching for stuff.

Found some bananas–but they were plantains (which have to be cooked), not the eating kind.

This was the third market we found, which was out of the city center and just along a road

    The Kananga Street Markets didn’t have much to offer. Does that mean there is a shortage of food in Kananga. We never noticed shortages while we were in Mbjui-Mayi and could always find fruit and vegetables (that is to say that Sylvie almost always found what we asked her to buy). It pleases us that Cote de Foi is still helping un Mbuji Mayi. We relied on him and Beau Beau for everything. We wish we could direct your camera lens and commentary towards all the saints and friends we had in Mbuji-Mayi. Maybe if a couple is indeed sent there we will again see all those we knew and love and pray for. Thanks again for your photos and commentary.

    We leave March 17th for the MTC and two weeks later for Camp Pendleton and the Marines. We’ll see you in DayBreak in 18 months (if you are here).

      Interestingly, I don’t think we have ever gone to church in Mbuji Mayi! It has always been a way station for us. We have been to church in Mwene Ditu, Luputa, Ngandajika, etc., but not Mbuji Mayi. We also do not know Beau Beau. Emanuel is the FM rep in MM and Cote-Foi is a driver, along with Omar, occasionally, but we have never met Beau Beau.

      We now have five apartments in MM: Muya, Dibindi, Bipemba, Tshikama, Moesa (Tshitenge). Bipemba is a really nice house that will be used to house a couple, if one ever goes there, or perhaps becomes a mission home.

      Congrats on the new mission call! Should be very interesting. We have six months left–with a lot going on. Couples leaving and arriving, a new mission president, etc., so we will be busy and the time will go fast for us I’m sure.
