Happy New Year. It’s always exciting to start the new year off with good news;

The well project that we have been working on over the past few months, in partnership with The Gathering from Caronport, Canada and Tumaini Family Church is now completed!

The ultimate hope was pure drinking water; unfortunately, we didn’t quite reach that goal. The water turned out to be slightly brackish. This was a little disappointing at first, but not entirely surprising given the challenge of hitting a thick interface of pure drinking water in this region. The good news is that fresh water for other uses is a close second best. Practically speaking, it will mean free, clean, fresh water for every purpose other than drinking. That includes bathing, washing dishes, cleaning clothes, rinsing produce, scrubbing floors, flushing toilets, etc. We understand that this will save families as much as one day’s salary per week! There is genuine excitement and thanksgiving here.

Thanks to all those who sacrificed to make this possible, we hope you have a blessed year.

Xx Glyn, Jane & Maureen
