The Well is Running!

We have great news! I finally received word from Charles in Nigeria that the well is up and running! The small village is getting water!

It took us quite a bit of time to actually get the money to them. I don’t know if I mentioned earlier that I tried to send via Wester.n Un.ion 2 times and it was denied. Well, we were able to successfully send the money through Barnabas here and the work began.

Here are a few photos of the work:

Running Water!!!

We received a thank you letter and photos from Charles.

We, the entire Agwuochas in Nigeria, wish to appreciate the generosity of all our benefactors in The United States of America and beyond. Really, you are friends in deed because you came to our aid when we were in need of good water.

Presently, the water well is functioning/in a very good condition, courtesy of your benevolence. The family and many people in the village can now boast of good water after some years of ‘break-down’. We all appreciate and feel indebted to you. We have nothing to payback in the likeness of silver and gold. But, we promise to offer daily prayers asking God not to let “neither your pot of flour nor your jar of oil run dry” (to borrow the words of the prophet Elijah).

We also pray that God will keep providing us with some money to run and maintain the water-well on daily basis given the high cost of power in Nigeria. This is crucial if water has to be provided on daily basis.

Once more, thank you all and remain blessed in the Lord Jesus!! We are grateful to you all.
Rev. Charles (For the family)

NB: This letter is accompanied with some pictures covering the repair of the water-well and supply of good water.

Take Care!!

So, thank you to YOU all who donated for our family Christmas project in 2012. We can now celebrate Christmas in July knowing the village has running water.
