|Sister and Elder Goodwin, office couple! He does finance and|
she takes care of everything for young missionaries. We all
depend on them for any help! Lehi, Utah
|Sister and Elder Gillett, MLS. They are living out in Jinja and|
help with several branches and the young missionaries living
in their area. Mapleton, Utah
|Elder/Dr and Sister Chabra. They are our medical couple and|
we all depend on them! No one would dare go to a medical
doctor here. We all just show up at their apt. or call.
|Another heavy, impossible bike load. This man is|
delivering beer! As we passed him I noticed all the
bottles are full, not empty! Glass bottles, so extra weight!
|This is in Masaka. Out by Lake Victoria. We drove out here to look|
at possible projects. They need help with latrines and water!
The main livelihood here is fishing!
|This is their main latrine. Looks nice but is full, so they were|
telling us that everyone just poops in a plastic bag and walks
to the lake and tosses it toward the lake or where ever at night.
|This is the result! Yikes!!!|
|Elder Howard taking notes as he talks with the village people.|
|A second latrine that has problems also. How could there not be|
problems with 9,000 people using these latrines?!
|This little house looks like it is on fire. It isn't. It is a smokehouse,|
for drying fish. Currently in use.
|This fisherman is repairing his nets! I stood and watched him for|
a long time. He just had a pattern and never stopped weaving.
|Some of the dried fish. The women got a kick out of the Muzungu|
taking a picture of the fish! Must have made their day!
|Madilyn and Ralph at the equator! They had this fixed up fancy,|
with a line going across the road.Do we remind you of the top of
a wedding cake?
|This is another pic of one of my favorite loads! The cattle, with|
their horns tied up, matoke, (green bananas) and men sitting on
top! Life is good!!
|I don't know if I ever sent a pic of these ugly birds? I think by our|
church. They just stand around waiting for something to be
thrown away. And they stand taller then me!
|Now this beautiful bird is the Gray crowned Crane. The Uganda|
national bird. He is in front of one of our favorite stores!
We call it New Quality, because we just found the store.
It has lots of American type things...tide, post cereal, etc.
|Driving out to Kayunga we came upon a tipped-over cane truck!|
Completely blocking the road.
|Ralph said "be sure to get a pic of the driver waiting for help!!"|
|I took some pic of these women pumping water, only to find out|
they are prisoners. I guess pumping water for the jail. They did
love having their picture taken.
|Not often do we see a real cyclist! With even a helmet on! Most|
times we see bikes being used to haul loads, not for fun. He is
wearing his glasses on the back of his head.
|This is a new latrine being built at Bugembe Health Center, with|
Mathias standing by. The health center is a maternity center and
the latrine was very needed.
|And inside. It will be nice when finished.|
|A boda boda load. Sugar cane and paying customer. The man in|
the red shirt is the customer. But I could not get a second pic as
|This is a taxi with the driver on right, signaling that they are going|
far and have room. The conductor, on the left is making the same
signal. Sometimes it is just the conductor who signals.
|A young boy with a heavy load of produce pushing it to the market.|
|Another shop making a bid for the desk building.|
|A business Muzungu always draws a crowd. Hopefully we will|
get approximately 800 desks!!
