Lesson Taught
Bible Lesson 1: The Light of the world 
Ida and Diana went to Nawandyo B to teach about trust in God. The community was so welcoming and eagerly waiting for the lessons of Community Empowerment. We were humbled( Diana and Ida). The chairman thanked Kibo, for the good programs they gave them in the community. He said that, they will continue maintaining the programs that phased out in their community. Ida and Diana thanked them for coming in big numbers. Ida told them that since COVID, the numbers had reduced, but she was impressed to see such a big number. She encouraged them to put on masks because COVID is real. She said that everyone needs to protect the other because life can never be replaced. The community agreed that they will put on their masks. Diana encouraged them to keep time and take every lesson that is taught seriously. She told them that, they need to keep trusting God, because He is the only one that will deliver them from all their troubles. They need to make their homes happy in God, by trusting Him all the time. Ida asked them how they develop their trust in God, Isabirye said that, by praying every day and doing good to others. Ida thanked him for his brilliant answer. She taught them that, they have to saturate their hearts with the word of God, when people believe in God, they are rewarded with love and safety, to get them through tough times.(Proverbs 3:5). She gave them a story of a rich man named Robert, who had his beautiful house and wanted to fill it, so he said whoever would fill the house will get a big reward, Kibikyo said he would do it, but failed, then there came Hanna an old lady who said she can do it , the rich man told her to do so, she went and bout a candle and lit it, the light filled the whole house, in the end the old lady was given a house. Ida told them that in this story we ,learn that, when we trust in God our lives are filled with the light and the love of God. Let us learn to give our troubles to God, to mention but a few.The chairman thanked Kibo staff for giving them words of wisdom and encouragement.
