Kisanga Stake bld (3)  McMullin last dinner (2)

The ‘last supper’ with the McMullins at our favorite Indian restaurant.

Elder Atkinson trying to clean his hands after dinner in the ‘dipping bowl’, and yes, it was as funny as it looks!

Always, one last picture of the President before leaving for the airport…

They will truly be missed!

Kipushi brick making (1)

While in Kipushi we noticed men making bricks right next door to the Church, so we all watched for a while and took pictures. It is a three-four man process with the machine. One fills the machine with dirt (just dirt and water), one pounds it down with a bat or a shovel, one uses a steel bar to move the compressed adobe up, and one stacks the bricks. They claim they can make 1,000 in one day…
