Distribution Well

I have waited and waited to be able to post this important message. We now have a distribution well in St. Marc at the church property. It is a 73' deep 4" well with a 115 volt submersible pump. The guys have worked hard and long in extraordinary heat to pull this off. It has been a journey to get here, and I must say, I am thrilled. I know the Haitians around our community are excited too. They were trying to drink the water before it was even completely clear and treated. They trust it more knowing that it is coming from so far down in the ground. It will change so much, distributing fresh drinking water, something we take so for granted here, is life-saving there! The guys are going to try to get the tank system in place and the actual distribution valving set up, to give away at least 500 gallons of fresh drinking water every day. The well running full time is capable of at least 15,000 gallons of water a day! That's almost a quarter of a million glasses of water a day. That's what I call potential! God is good, we are blessed. And tonight we rejoice in this victory for our Haitian family and for all who have supported this endeavor with their prayers, finances, and even getting on the ground with us in Haiti! We couldn't do this without your wonderful help and the strength God gives us for the journey! Blessings from a happy heart!
