Village Notes
There is an old woman who failed to come for the lessons but enjoyed the story of a Good Samaritan, she said that even if she she can't walk, the ears are still good. She asked Margaret to take the visitors at her house because she wanted to review with Ida. This old woman narrated the whole lesson!

Lesson Taught
Bible Lesson 4: Loving others 
Ida went to Nabikenge and taught about a Bible lesson "loving others " Nabikenge is 95%christian, Ida asked Ssegonga to read from Luke 10:25-37 a story on the good samaritan. The students and some of the community members acted a drama on this story. From the story of the good samaritan that talked about helping our neighbours in need, One member asked that who is the neighbour they are talking about?. Nabirye Susan answered saying that a neighbour is anyone in need and Brenda said that a neighbour is a person you share everything with. Namukose said that her immediate neighbour is her husband. The community asked Ida to help them identify who to help which she bounced back to the community.The community said that according to the scripture it is clear that the man was in a critical condition, which means someone in great need. Sandra said that she thinks its not only those in critical condition but anyone they see who needs help e.g. Widows, children without fees. Old people who have no one to help, women who have just delivered. They can help those people in their village because it might take long for someone to come from a distance to help. They must own their village using the example of the Good Samaritan. At the end of the lesson, Sulai a member of the community said that it was high time they went and looked for some members who have taken long without attending lessons and another member John pledged to go and find out the reason as to why they are not coming in the weekly meetings. 

Next Visit: 2018-06-06 - Purpose: Ida will teach a health lesson about Nutrition. This will encourage the community to save some food for home consumption and not selling all the food and later buy.
