"Behold, I will send for many fishers, saith the Lord, and they shall fish them; and after will I send for many hunters, and they shall hunt them from every mountain, and from every hill, and out of the holes in the rocks."
On August 3rd President Brent Thomas came to Bujumbura. It was the first time we were able to meet him and his wife Carolyn. They are from Calgary, Canada. The saints here were so excited.
Transport was provided at Branch 2 and 3 so they could join us at Branch 1 for the Stake Conference-like meeting. We don't have a district or a stake yet. The choir from Branch 2 sang and David played for them.
The ride home was so much better. It helped that we knew where we were going and we got an early start and that President Thomas drove so we could relax and see the sights.
We started noticing lots of bicycles carrying hay on the road. They seemed to be coming to a central place from both directions. Then we saw them all together here.
This is a water point where people were gathered to fill their plastic containers. There was a whole town of houses built by an NGO that were virtually uninhabited. The people preferred their village.
Back in Bujumbura, we stocked up on veggies at a local street market.
I'm sure this is not the end of these trips. They say there are 200 people waiting for baptism in Baraca which is south of Uvira. It is very inaccessible. Anyone have a large helicopter you would like to donate?
