This morning we continued to purge the well. The water is clean and welcome. I have been blessed by the number of men that have been joining us in labor every day. While we don’t share a common language we are still able to work side by side and laugh with each other as Mike Kelly and Don Davis both fell in the water pit and I fell in the mud.
A number of men from the area have been spending the night on site to protect the equipment. They have been doing this since Friday. The entire area is very anxious to have clean water. Yesterday when we started sending water into the air it was almost a carnival atmosphere.
After cleaning up around the well, the form for the concrete was set and work began mixing concrete. With the last of the concrete in place Stanley set the Living Water/Kingsland BC dedication plaque in place.
It has been a true joy meeting the staff of Living Water and the people benefiting from the well. It is also wonderful spending time with brothers in Christ as we labor to further His Kingdom.
