Notes
Abraham met thirty seven Nawaibete community members and they learnt how they are going to work together as a community. There is one member who was caught stealing rice from the garden and he was arrested but the owner of the rice forgave him. what the theif did however, he went to court claiming that he was beaten. The whole community went to court to give witness that he was not beaten by the owner of the garden and this made the community divided. In the meeting they learnt about helping each other by the example of a Good Samaritan story. They learnt by shading the Good Samaritan picture and one old lady she was so excited shading a picture with her grand children who were guiding her to shade well. The defence member on the LC1 said that he has learnt much now how to deal with people, he wished that it will be good if the whole of Nawaibete community members learn this. He asked if they do this lesson again and he said that it is always a challenge because you may want to be Good to somebody and he or she may pay you back bad like the guy who was forgiven and then he went to court that he was beaten. Abraham encouraged them always to do good to each other, the man who was caught stealing who took the other one who forgave him to court, asked for forgiveness and the whole meeting was silent for some time and one asked if he will withdraw the case from the court and he said he is going to do it. The community members were very happy because Abraham told them to put those pictures on their door frames and they will be reading whenever they enter their houses. The chairman Mr God told the gathering that this is going to help them in this season of electing the LC1 chairman on their village, they have two candidates and they have a problem choosing one because they are brothers. Abraham told them that they are going to use that story in everything they will be doing.
