Notes
Abraham met thirty three Bukoma A community members and they went to check the bore hole because last time Abraham left an assignment to clean the bore hole and make sure the water is not logged in the soak pit. They found when some boys from the community drowning water soak pit taking to make bricks. He had told the community to see that they look for one bolt which got lost and fix their bore, they have not yet fixed it and they said they are collecting money so that they can buy a new bolt. They came to the meeting place and Abraham taught them how they can work together as a community using the story of a Good Samaritan. Each one was given a picture of someone helping another person to color and to hint about the two things 1 If he or she is the one needing a help how would he or she like to be helped 2 If he or she is the one helping another person how he or she help him. They were so excited to learn about the lesson and hey said politician preach messages of hate, but now they are not going to listen to them. They said that they are going to put the picture of a Good Samaritan on their door frames so that they remembering every time they come in and out. Abraham encouraged them to continue working together because Bukoma is for them all and their children. They need to know that the village is more bigger than one person who may bring hatred among the community members. They have finished filling the holes with soil, manure and now they are ready for planting.
