Dear Friends and Family, It’s been a while since I wrote and wanted to bring you up to date on our progress.
We have now funded the drilling of 5 deep water wells in the countries of Zambia and Mozambique. The lives of thousands of people have been altered for generations to come. They can have a hope for the future that was impossible before. As each one of us steps up to the plate and does what we have been gifted and prompted to do, we have the opportunity to be God’s hands of blessing “to the least of these”.
The Ball Room Dance last April raised just over $2,700.
Our 2nd annual Cards for a Cause- Euchre tournament is being planned for October 4th
I’m in process of researching a 2nd edition photography calendar for 2014.
I’m still hoping that there are others who will be moved to act in their sphere of influence and rally friends and family around the cause of providing the life essential clean water that so many are without.
Golf, cards, dancing, game night, running…anything that you and your friends like to do, could be a simple event that they pay to do now and then.
Birthdays, anniversaries, Christmas, Tuesdays…all could be an opportunity to make a donation in someone’s honor. We even had one bride donate in lieu of wedding favors. Our website has cards for different occasions that you can print and send.
My commitment is still for 10 wells. The need is still great. A child dying every 20 seconds from lack of clean water is still not acceptable. The Lord has opened some interesting doors, and I remember continually that the agenda and timing are his.
I’m grateful to be part of a cause that makes such a huge impact on lives, and grateful for those of you who have chosen to take this journey with me. You can find a list of donors for each well on the Donor Page.
Please help me spread the word by forwarding this link to friends. It tells the story behind the process.

God bless you and your family
