caring for trees 
Abraham met thirty six Kivule community members and they went around checking how the members planted their trees. They found out that some members had not yet put the cages around the trees and they were advised to put them so that they can protect the trees from animals. Abraham encouraged them to put the banana stem around the trees to keep the moisture because it is not raining as it was expected and use the method of in Kishaike village who tired a small jerrycans up on two poles and the water was dripping near the tree. His tree is doing well and he is one of the members who has good trees. They came to where they usually meet and the chairman told the meeting that they are still waiting for the guy who promised to take a copy of their constitution so that they can also know how to write theirs. They are hoping the guy to bring a copy by next week. They started a church in their area and they meet at the chairman's home with thirty members. They said more people are hoping to join then in future and they hope to start looking where they will build their church building. They are using their stoves and when we were checking the trees in homes there was some food cooking on the stove even if the owners were not around.
