July 17 - 23, 2017 - Departing Missionaries

July 17 -

 Missionary Apartment visits.
The Assistants Apartment - Elder Jules has really been cleaning this place since he arrived here June 3. Unfortunately his companion would just sit and watch him clean and fix up. He now has another companion who will help him. They added pictures from old Liahona magazines on the walls.
This apartment has extra bunk beds to house visiting missionaries from Likasi and Kolwezi coming for Mission Leadership Conference. Also when new missionaries arrive they stay here overnight before going to their sector in Likasi and Kolwezi.

Two bookshelves being organized. Stacks of old manuals and Liahonas waiting to be hauled off.

We went to the Kasapa Apartment where the Elders were washing their clothes.

The next stop was the Kisimi Apartment. This is one of our newest apartments. The Elders had already completed their laundry for the week.

At the Upemba apartment Elder Egombe is showing off the laundry that was already finished.
July 18 - On our morning walk we saw a homemade soccer goal. The soccer field is in the midst of the trash pile.

Elder Peterson giving "high 5's" and "knuckles" with the local children.

The papaya tree in the Peterson Medical back yard. Ilunga planted it when Elder and Sister Mikesell lived there.

We saw a monkey in the tree on the other side of the mission home. If you look close enough you can see him sitting on the limb.

July 20 - This is advertising several sizes of bricks for sale - complete with the phone number.

Parts of an old car deposited along the trail where we walk near the river.

The field has been plowed with a tractor. It used to be weeds.

Interesting field of weeds next to the plowed field
