Notes
Abraham met twenty four Igerera B community members and the chairman told the meeting that he lost the mother in law and they were busy preparing for burial. Some members were also preparing to go with the chairman for burial.They were looking for a truck to hire which will take them for burial. The group collected some money and they sent it to help with the people who are there at the burial place. Abraham also moved with some members doing evaluation of twenty five members and they are taking care of the trees because most of the trees are alive and growing well. They are also working on registering the group at the sub county and they said January next year is their target to finish the work of registering the group. Abraham also met a man, who told Abraham that he killed four of his friends in an accident and this happened in 2009 but he kept it by himself and the family. He said they were sent to collect water in drums but the road constructor made a big hump after them passing. On their way back they thought the road was smooth and hit the hump while the vehicle was in high speed, the drums full of water cut his friends into two part, he was taken to the hospital but up to now he feels guilty of what happened. Abraham prayed with him and asked God to encourage him in this situation.
