Dear Loved Ones,
Greetings. Today, Wednesday August 8, 2018, was one day I would love to relive again. I left the house early to go to Bas-Limbe to see how the new pump they were digging was going. The road is rocky, and driving on it is like tap-dancing. I prayed for my tires. Kihomi has been in this village many times with her women for economic development training, supervision or relief ministry. She knows well the needs of the village and recommended building this pump.
When I got to the place, I had a big surprise. Women and children were lining to stock water in their plastic containers. The scene started around 10:00 AM and went on until 2:00 PM.
All of them thanked God for the gift of this pump in their midst. The village has not had any drop of rain for months. The rivers are all dried up. Water has become like gold in the village.
A scene like this one revives in us the zeal to be here and to serve the poor, the needy, the people with no names and no titles, just in need of water.
Thank you for being the channels God has and is using to give water to those badly in need of it.
Nzunga & Kihomi
I’ve written many times about the need of clean water in the third world. Water borne diseases are still the biggest killer in the world. It is common when Nzunga is putting in a well for people to be there when he is finished to get water. However, for this well the people started lining up early in the morning. After the drill finds water then a gasoline ran pump is used to pump out the dirty water until clean water is obtained. Then normally the well is capped, and a hand pump installed.
In this case, the people were so desperate that they used the gasoline pump to fill their containers ALL DAY LONG. Nzunga had never seen such a response and was amazed. Notice how they line up their containers to keep their place in line. If they are in an office that has lines, sometimes they line up their sandals to keep their place. Really a smart way to not have to stand in line for long periods.
Thank you for supporting this ministry that offers both lifesaving water and eternity saving spiritual water. $3000 to $4000 will get a well drilled and capped and a pump installed. This might be a great project for your church or Sunday school!
