Dear Friends and Family,
I’m blessed to be part of such a caring group of people and excited to report that we have a fully funded well! It may be a couple of months before we know exactly where in Zambia it will be built, giving them time to finish where they are, move the equipment and whatever preliminary things need to be done. A deep water well of this type can provide enough water for a village of 700 people. 700 lives will be dramatically changed.
There have been several people who said that they wanted to give but hadn’t gotten around to it yet (It’s never too late) and several checks have cleared since we reached the initial target. We have ~$500 as seed money for another well.
World Hope has been diligent in trying to track our donations separately, but a couple of checks snuck by initially. Please be sure to put Friends and Family for LIFE -Zambia well in the memo line if you choose to give by check rather than online. If your name is not listed on the “Donor Page” and you paid by check, please let us know so we can have it tracked.
So this is where we go from here:
The Friends and Family account will stay open indefinitely. There are many more villages without clean water to drink. 6,000 people die every day from the effects of drinking dirty water. I believe that God gave me the desire to start this and I don’t have the desire to quit yet.
Future communication will primarily be through this blog site. If you are interested in how things are going, or think you may want to contribute in the future, please click on the “Follow” button in the blue box on the right. This will send you an email letting you know when there is an update. This next step is up to you but I hope you’ll continue on the journey with us and be encouraged by what a few can do. I will let you know when they determine our well location and post any pictures we get of the progress. I would love to have you leave comments.
Once we are in process, or have finished this well, if you are feeling more comfortable about passing this information on to your friends and family, send them to the “Welcome Page” of the blog for all the initial details.
That’s all for now,
Living in Faith…Expecting (LIFE)
