Introduction Lorna went to this village to continue with the topic communication Skills. Overview On the way Lorna kept calling the chairman but he was not picking. When she finally got to the village she decided to go straight to the chairman’s home. At the chairman’s home he was not at home as he was in the garden however his wife and children were home. The chairman’s wife told one of their daughters to go call the chairman. She went and the chairman returned shortly. He seemed like he was not expecting me. Immediately he informed Lorna that they were told that Lorna would be going to this village on Sunday. A few people around also joined them to listen as they also confirmed what the chairman said.Lorna was as confused as he was and asked who informed them?. The chairman said that they mentioned in church that Lorna would be coming Sunday. Lorna asked the chairman if he did not know Kibo does not work Sundays and since we started whether anyone from Kibo had worked on a Sunday. He said he was also doubting but he thought maybe Lorna was really going to come. He reported that many people had gathered waiting for Lorna but when they saw she was not coming they left. Lorna apologized for the miscommunication and the chairman also apologized for not calling to find out. He however asked Lorna to come back another day as this day was not going to work out. They decided on Wednesday. Lorna and the chairman with a few other men and women moved around mobilizing people to come attend the meeting on Wednesday. The chairman apologized for the inconvenience and promised on Wednesday the community members will be there and he even told Lorna not to call him but just show up. Conclusion Lorna will be back to this village Wednesday the 14th.
