Digging was a success!
Thank you all for your support in the digging of the well in Zambia! Whether it was through financial donations, or through your prayers, it was very much appreciated! We are so thankful for what God has done in Twashuka over the past few months!
In November of 2018, we were able to raise over $6,000 dollars to go towards a fresh water well in Twashuka. Then, this February, after a few months of waiting for government approval and researching, the digging commenced. During the process, we encountered a few difficulties, such as after digging 60 meters (about 65 yards) we hit water, but not enough to last very long. So we kept going and by the end, we were left with a 80 meter (87 yard) well. It’s in a rocky area, so the water is clean and fresh and will stay that way!
Well, digging was a success (pun intended:)! It’s been a bit over a month now since the well was dug and it’s already been getting it’s full use! Since we now have a fresh source of water on the school grounds, we are able to feed the children while they are at school- something we have been wanting to do for a long time! We find that the children can study a lot better when they’ve got a full belly!
Also, we’re excited to announce that tomorrow we’re going to be dedicating this well at around 2:00 P.M. Zambian time! Please keep us in your prayers! Lots of people will be attending, including the mayor of Luanshya.
Can’t wait to update you next on what God’s doing in Zambia!
