Water

Back in 2009 there we a need and a request in the village for water.  There had been a few wells in the village, but they were all either broken or a far distance from the church.  William had the idea that this could be a good outreach for the church.

Many friends from the states got together and raised funds to make this happen.  After quite a few trials, water finally came out, and the church rejoiced.  It was an amazing experience to be a part of this and continue to go back to the well to see that it is still a value in the community and working well.

Installing all the pipes – you must be very careful or you could damage the entire well
