Fantastic Help


From May to the middle of August, Mbale was blessed to have close to 30 young people from Help International, many of them BYU students or alumni. The Mbale Branch was a recipient of much of their good works because they attended church with us and took part in Primary and Relief Society and taught the Teacher Development class. Some taught keyboard lessons every Sunday morning and English and Business classes during the week. They painted classrooms, built a school roof making possible for the school to open this week and much more.












They traveled around town and country on the back of a boda boda or in taxis...not an easy way to go!! But they were all good sports about it and were all kept safe for which we were grateful.
We will miss them but wish them success in their educational and career endeavors.

So, which one of the guys is the concert pianist? They all look so young and healthy and happy. The Youth of Zion teaching the Youth of Zion in Africa. Wonderful days for the world.

Also, Happy Anniversary for yesterday. The world would be a much better place if it filled with married couples like you two. Best Wishes.
