community meeting 
Abraham met twenty four Sinde community members and they discussed about how they can work together with the church members. The church members were saying that they do not let them to get water from the bore hole. The bore hole care taker Mss Matirida started to explain and she said that their bore hole serves the entire sub county and they decided that at list each to get three jerrycans for home use, it is better to let the neighbor also to get than you one person taking ten jerrycans. The vice caretaker Mr Titi said that their bore sometimes water reduce to come and what they do is to lock the bore hole for one hour then open it when the water level is raised so that they can pump more water. He said there some members who want to get more jerrycan of water more than the others and that is a reason where some people say that they are not allowed to get water. Abraham encouraged them to continue working together because that what will make a change in their village. He told the meeting that the explanation of the caretaker and the assistant is good because they learnt about a Good Samaritan who help another person and took care of him, we also need to take care of our neighbors because it is bad for you take ten jerrycans of water and another going without. He told the caretaker also not to make people contribute money and they use it for something else, that money is supposed to be for the bore hole in case it breaks down. This came after members complained that the caretaker asked than money and she used that money to come for women conference. They are going to discuss about opening a group account.
