Tom, Collins & Francis spent the early part of the morning cleaning the Mambai Well water tank. It was a much needed service indeed!
It takes about an hour and a half to drive from Mambai to Shirumba. At approximately 11:45 am the Technical crew from Davis arrived at Shirumba to install the pump.
The first step was to verify that all the necessary pump installation components were on site. Walter signed off on behalf of the Well Committee.
At approximately 1:30 pm the pump installation had been successfully accomplished.
Pump testing/flushing of the dirty water was a fun time, it brought so much joy and excitement.
At approximately 2:00 pm the Technical crew informed us they were not going to install the Control Panel until we had a water proof cover. This turn of events automatically cancelled our planned dedication ceremony. There was a lot of discouragement to pass around. But our God came through and made a way to enable us to witness the completion of the installation tomorrow morning.
An abrupt power shortage prevented the welder from completing the control panel house. Work is scheduled to continue tomorrow at 7:00 am.
We did manage to pass out a few of the “Sango and the Well” books today. We hope to have an opportunity tomorrow to pass out more.
Thank you for your prayers, we are thankful for all the victories and the struggles that we have witnessed. We trust that we have to some extent by the grace of God, expanded the Kingdom by word and deed.
