The Drilling Process of the Well

Mwalimu went back home to Kenya on the 30th of June 2012. After a few days , the drilling kicked off and water was found at the estimated depth (160 - 180 M). Pastor Joshua Ngao, President of Fishers of Men Ministries came to visit the site and met the villagers together with Mwalimu.

Test pumping followed and that gave the report of the pressure of the water and how much water was available from the borehole.

The phase two is expected to begin soon, where tanks are going to be bought and the pipes to pull up water from the ground are going to be installed. The source of power will be solar panels.

People can still donate to support the remaining part of the project.

First meeting to discuss actually fundraising and strategies was on Tuesday, April 10, 2012.  Those present were Pastor Joshua, Fishers of Men, Deb Bowen, Student Exchange and A BOOK by ME and me.

Arina from Russia has finished my illustrations for my children's book so Deb will be putting it together for us.  Planning a kick off event for April 20 for teens at Fishers of Men location  - The Center in Davenport.  

Allan Ross of the Jewish Federation of the Quad Cities told Deb later in the day he would like to make the first donation.

My host dad and mom will be fund raising at the end of this month for the initual survey to be done in my city before we know total expense; how far we have to dig, etc.  It's so exciting!
