Wells ARE Being DRILLED!!!

Steve recently visited the drought devastated area of northern Kenya where this past year some 75% of the cattle, 40% of the camels & many numbers of people have lost their lives! Enroute to the village of Wagir, bones of animals were seen along the dusty trails & dried out river beds.

Yet, Hallelujah prayers are being answered... & the situation is being changed! Steve was able to witness our AFRICA OASIS PROJECT partners, World Serve International & their drilling company Maji-Tech (which is based in east Africa) drill wells in northern Kenya. This is making a huge difference between life & death in this area. Because of the urgent need & desert type terrain, these were deep wells of over 300 feet, at a cost of approximately $25,000 per well. Each well will service the needs of an entire village.

Steve joined Assemblies of God World Missions
Africa Regional Director, Mike McClaflin, along with East Africa Area Director, Greg Beggs & watched the wells being drilled. Hal Donaldson, Convoy of Hope Founder/Director, was also there, overseeing the distribution of food that Convoy of Hope had trucked for the local village people.

Your faithful prayers & financial contributions are helping us with our travels to needy areas & the discovery of water solutions for the people in Africa.
