Our First Service Project

Elder Hanks, the District Leader, organized a service project for the missionaries to clean the chapel in Masai.  This branch formerly had over 100 members attending, but the Sultan changed the Sabbath in this area to Friday because this is a Muslim area.  Now there are only about 2 families who attend church, and no children because they are in school on Sunday.  This is very sad for this branch because there are many members who would love to come to church, but they cannot.  It is hard for us to imagine the hardships that members of our church in other countries have to experience.  We should be so grateful for the blessings that we have and the freedom of religion that we enjoy.

Happy eating everyone!
