Making Soap

By Sara:

I have occasionally been teaching on different topics from home, with groups of women (and sometimes even a few men) from the Soroti church.  After the last time that I was with one of these groups, they asked if I knew how to make solid soap.  It just so happens that I do, so they asked that I teach them how.  We were all very entertained as we were "suiting up" in our protective gear (so no one would get burned by the lye which is used in the soap making process).

Making soap is not very complicated, it just takes some time.  We actually took a two hour intermission in the training after we had mixed the ingredients together and needed to wait until it became thick so we could pour it into a mold.
