Behold, I will hasten my work in its time. I give unto you... a commandment that you...prepare yourselves, and sanctify yourselves; yea, purify your hearts ...before me, that I may make you clean...Teach ye diligently and my grace shall attend you, that you may be instructed more perfectly...That ye may be prepared in all things when I shall send you again to magnify the calling whereunto I have called you, and the mission with which I have commissioned you. DC88:73-80

Scenes from "the Bush"on the way to Likasi
ZoneConference in Likasi was enlightening and well worth the trip for missionary reasons. The ride in the car was bumpy and dusty. It took about two hours there. We took about 350+ photos because of the amazement we were in. It is an area where people live very humbly. As you can see, there is no running water. Therefore, most of the water is gathered at a river or a puddle. They use the bidons (yellow containers) to carry water to their huts. If you look closely, you will see people actually around and inside of their homes. Please notice that even around these humble homes, the dirt around the hut has been swept well and is cleared down to bedrock. They use whatever they can to make a shelter for themselves and their family members. There are so many of these types of homes and even communities of them. These are the most humble of homes in the area. May God bless these, His children.
Notice the well swept dirt.
Notice here that they have chickens and a garden! They really do try their very hardest to survive!
I took this photos not realizing the woman was coming out. The home must change when the rainy season comes! I tried to take these photos, when no one was watching or from the car window. You can understand why.
