A season of preparation

The season of advent, the four weeks leading up to Christmas, are a time for us to quiet our minds and prepare a place in our heart in order to celebrate the Joy of His salvation – the birth of Jesus Christ.

During week one the focus is on Hope. Take some time this week to meditate on the Hope that God has promised and Jesus has brought to the world. Take some of that Hope and share it with someone in need.

The people walking in darkness have seen a great light; on those living in the land of deep darkness a light has dawned.
Isaiah 9:2

A startling difference

We visited the Ilturisho school this past spring and were able to get some video of the students there. They took me to the reservoir they used to walk to to get water for the school.  This water was used for drinking, cleaning and cooking! The next part of the video shows the students using the clean water from the pipeline. I’m sure you can appreciate the difference.  The video speaks for itself.

New well project – Ripoi Nkineji

When we first pulled up to the spring at Ripoi there was no one there. We walked around the site looking at the project.  I was astounded that this small puddle of water about the size of a couple bird baths was their only source of water. Slowly people started showing up.  A mother with her two young daughters came to scoop water out of the shallow indent in the earth.
