August 14 - Charbonne delivered to the Assistants' Apartment
The van has no engine in it. It appears it was towed to this spot and then set on fire. I sent the pictures to Sister Nancy Peterson. Maybe she can come up with another story for us.

Rebecca, these next two pictures were taken in your honor--since it has your name on it.
Right next to the gas pump where we were filling up the truck there is this amazingly clean tire shop.

This is as close as we will get to an eclipse here. Sun fading into the clouds.
We went to the Turkish restaurant tonight with Elder and Sister Bleak. Forgot to take pictures.
Spent the day cleaning our home. Since we haven't posted pictures of this house that we moved into last July before we went home for four months, we decided to do it now.

The Bleak's invited us for dinner at the meeting. We had a delicious broccoli soup and a grilled ham and cheese sandwich. They then came to our house to watch the first episode of "North and South". They have become great friends to us.
Sunday, August 20 - Kisanga Stake Conference. There was a wonderful spirit in the meeting today. Unfortunately, the sound system was not working very well. We had a hard time hearing where we sat. We arrived a half hour before the meeting started but our seats were into the cultural hall area.
|After the meeting, a view looking at the front of the chapel.|
|Turning around, this is the back of the cultural hall.|
After the meeting, Elisée Kinemba, a daughter in one of our home teaching families came up to us to introduce her husband. They were married a few weeks ago and now living in the Gecamines 1 Ward. They look very happy together.
