We went to the Bongonga and the Kasapa apartments today with the plumber to see exactly what needs to be repaired. The Elders at the Kasapa apartment have an outdoor gym. You can see their barbell and their weight bench. They are very ingenious here to make do with what they have.

Barbell is an old axle

April 16 - Happy Easter!! This day is the most important of all days. Resurrection Day of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Because He lives, we all shall live.

Elder and Sister Davis drove down from Likasi this afternoon. We were all invited to the mission home for a delicious ham dinner Sister Shumard prepared.

President Shumard said 7 missionaries will be arriving on Tuesday. They have been waiting for their visa to enter this country.
