This week we went out of town and worshipped with the good brethren at Makamira. It takes us about half an hour to get there from our house. We travel east of town through some small villages, passing banana and coffee fields. When we get to the village of Makamira we head north and up the mountain. This area is dominated by a wonderful moutain, Mount Meru, the twin of Mount Kilimanjaro. Like Kilimanjaro it was a volcano, but it has been quiet for many years.
A little ways up the road we turn off to a small track and make our way to the Makamira church building. The brethren there are very pleased with this building, as you can see it is not finished yet, but they are able to get out of the elements and it is their own.

We had a very good service with good singing and thoughtful prayers. The brethren had asked me to teach and I taught on "The Salt of the Earth, The Light of the World" - on how we have to make a difference. Christianity is an active religion and we have to do what the Bible says. All the brethren gave very good attention to what I was saying and seemed to appreciate my words.
