Village Notes
They reported that their neighboring village is badly needing a well. The village is Bulondo which is almost four miles away but they draw water from their well which is straining the borehole and this causes breakdowns all the time. If possible consider this village too to ease their borehole from being pumped every time.

Lesson Taught
Bible Lesson 7: The Tongue 
Notes
Ida went to Kitukiro with the visitors to teach a bible lesson about “The Tongue “ She if anyone knew what the Tongue was, one member pulled out her tongue and showed the community, the second one said that it’s the language, Tofa said that banana plants have tongues too. Ida thanked everyone who participated and told them that they were going to talk about the Tongue Namukose (the first member pulled out) It’s one of the small parts of our bodies but can cause huge problems. Let’s read from James 3:2-12. After the lesson Ida told a true story which made the community puzzled, the story touched them and they started asking what happened next. Ida told them that the victims in the story had to face consequences such as The pregnant woman lost her baby though she was innocent. The husband was sentenced seven years in prison. The romor monger was chased from the community. The marriage broke up. Tofa asked what should they do to stop this problem? Ida gave them three strainers to sieve every word before speaking anything.And the sieves are 1. Is what am about to speak true? 2. Is it worth to speak? 3. Will it unite. If any word refuses to pass through even one sieve, never say a word go and dig in your garden because you will harvest in the long run. Ida concluded by giving them a memory verse from Ephesians 4:29. After the closing prayer one member took Ida at a side and whispered to her if there was any one who went to Jinja and told her what was going in his life. Ida assured him that no one took rumors to Jinja but that is God’s way of talking to people. He said that he used his tongue badly and caused problems but he wants to change and be a good who will bring peace and harmony to his community. He asked Ida to help and go with him but she asked the community to help their brother which they agreed.Two members volunteered to go and settle the matter. Ida will follow up on phone to find out how things went.
