The vegetation in the yard behind our home was getting up to our shoulders in some places so it was time to have someone cut it back. Since lawn mowers are scarce and would have a hard time anyway with grass as high as it gets, a machete is used to "brush the grass." Felix Kanneh is the Young Men President in the Messima Branch and brought 3 young men with him to help cut our grass. Felix is squatting in front, another member is standing to the left in the picture and the young man on to the right in the picture is an investigator.
We had several papaya getting ripe that were more than we
could eat since we had already picked some earlier. The young men were
happy to have five papaya to divide between them.
