Every August the churches in our area have what is called Msasa meetings. The word Msasa means "grass walls" and refers to the temporary shelters they build each year for their annual associational meeting. This AGM involves everyone in their association. The meeting generally lasts 4-5 days. During this time, they will do associational business (elect officers, plan for next year etc.), they will have times of preaching and instruction from God's word, and they will fellowship and encourage one another. These pictures are from the Manenekela Baptist Churches Associations annual msasa. We have about 7 different associations in our area. So this time of year is busy going from one meeting to another.
