Here are a few misc items I thought I would share:
The most typical sight in the Congo: waiting to get water from a local water source.
This is the Gecamine market in Lubumbashi on Sunday: clothing day
Typical transport waiting to be filled with customers, at about 300 francs each (30 cents)
The new Kisanga Stake Center. We learned why it is sitting empty even though it is finished: they have no chairs or furniture…just another boondoggle I guess…
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!
The McMullins take one more picture with Emanuel and family just before leaving for the airport
Always, one last picture of the President before leaving for the airport…
They will truly be missed!
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…
