The meeting began with prayer and the Lc1 gave welcome remarks to all the people who turned up for the meeting.Alex B then taught the community the benefit of the trees and told them that trees are good in the community. He asked them to look at the trees which has many branches and yet all are on one stem and yet each branch benefits on the stem. Trees provide many services to people like shade as even their meetings are held under a tree.
