The lamps are selling. Since Yngve in January put the price down thanks to donations, the lamps are much more attractive. Probably, there won’t be many left to bring to Kimpese and Luozi. If necessary, we will sell the lamps from Matadi. Tutondele was here today with the rest of his stock. In the last months he has sold 110 lamps.
I am glad that Yngve decided to make this trip, and I am grateful that I joined him and got to meet everyone involved. Many Congolese now get the pleasure of having light even though the power fails. The lamps have a much higher quality than Chinese solar products that are flooding the market. It will be wonderful to be home in Sweden, knowing that the lamps are put to use rather than just lie in a warehouse and go to waste.
We continue to practice French and it is fun. I guess that we might get visits from Congo in the future, and then it will come in handy.
Today we visited the vice director of the CEC Church, Levi Matondo.
When we were here in 2010, his wife travelled with us to Kinshasa where she was going to attend her brother’s wake.
When I went to the TV room at Nzo Binati, Miriam, the daughter of Nsimba Andersson, had come. A proud father told me that Miriam had come directly from the school to wait for her dad.
