We've Got Water!!!

We finally got a borehole (water well) drilled at Haven on the Hill!!!!
This was a HUGE project! A borehole is not a simply water well; it is a deep, area-wide water well. It was drilled to 202 meters. The nearest well to the Haven on the Hill site is about 12 kilometers away.

Currently, the people in the village get their water from a stream that is NOT clean. Even boiled, it is not recommended to drink. But they don't really know otherwise. So they continue to drink.

Our next step is to buy the pump and the generator and build a pump house. Then, we will install a pipe that runs outside our compound fence so that the people of the community can access without coming onto the compound grounds. It will be open several hours a few days a week. The funding is there, so it will just take a bit of time to get it ready. By January, the community should have plenty of clean water!!

It is amazing what little things we take for granted....like clean water.

God has blessed us with the opportunity to help those around us. We pray that they will be able to see Jesus in this. Pray with us that their eyes would be open to the true Wellspring of Life! May He bless them as He meets even their most basic physical need.

His Cherished Ones

We are now officially His Cherished Ones, Inc! Recognized by the IRS....I think we're for real now! :-)

So, for all of you who are/have been a part of this ministry in Kenya, you are now a part of His Cherished Ones International Ministry! As far as the work I am doing and the ministries we are involved in, nothing changes at this point. As far as how to be a part and contribute, that will be changing in the future. I will keep you posted.

For now, we just praise God that He is continuing to open doors of service and show us daily how we can share the love of Christ with His cherished children of all ages.
