Lesson Taught
Bible Lesson Five: God’s forgiveness 
Someone died and the majority went for burial in Bukoma village, even those who attended were also rushing for the burial. Ida reviewed the previous lesson and asked the community to recite the memory verse from the book of Ephesians 4:29. Most of them did great but mostly men struggled. Ida started by telling the story about the lost son from Luke 15:11. After the scripture,Ida encouraged the community to always go back to the father despite of any problems we have all caused. When the lost son came back to his senses he immediately started walking back home to the father. Though he was stinking like pigs,his father recognised him from a distance and gave him a big hug, kiss,new clothes and shoes and killed for him a big fat cow!. Ida encouraged the members not to think that our sins are too many to forgive and that our daddy God is waiting for us to take a step. Kamari Nkoboli asked if his sins can be forgiven too, Ida told everyone that there is no sin that God cannot forgive,however much one thinks they are too big,many,bad,stinky and etc,God is waiting for us to comeback to our senses and ask Him to forgive us. Nkoboli asked to be prayed for. The group gathered around him and Mze Tusubira prayed after asking everyone to pray the Lords' prayer which is "Our Father who art in Heaven..........." People were rushing to go for the burial so the lesson ended from the Lord's Prayer.
