Hello, once again from Kaihura. It is wonderful to be able to write again. We have had quite a challenging last couple of weeks. First off, Katie and Paulina got malaria. Then Kolby and myself had malaria as well. (Kolby also had typhoid.) Kim didn’t want to be left out of the fun so she picked up typhoid. I am pleased to say that everyone is back to normal now except Kolby. He is still slowly on the mend.
To add to the excitement this past Saturday we lost our passports, computer, etc. (sound familiar?), but all thanks be to God, everything was returned to us on Sunday!
Also, Kim and Paulina are now back home after spending 2 months with us. We thoroughly enjoyed having them here and seeing God use and grow them over their time in Kenya and Uganda.
On Monday morning we had the opportunity to journey deep into the village (nearly and hours motorcycle drive each way) to dedicate and hand over a new well in the village of Kyente. Well ceremonies are always an exciting experience. Bringing clean water to a community that has never had it before is incredible. We are thrilled and honored to be a part of providing something so valuable to so many communities. God is good!
George, the local water engineer, is testing the clean water!
Prossy, from Bringing Hope, along with George, shared with the community the importance of keeping their new well area clean.
