Sixty-three feet! That’s right the Malawi I drill team has drilled 63 feet!! We are going to start reaming out,“making the hole lager,” then we will be putting the submersible pump down to see how much water we are getting from it. Most of the things we have drilled through has been sand and clay. The team is really excited to be making progress. The drilling has gone fairy smoothy which has been a huge answer to prayer. Please keep the prayers coming!
Not all the team members can be on the drill at the same time. So what do the rest do? Well, it’s not an easy job. They have to keep anywhere from 50 to 200 kids away from the drill. They spend the day playing games, telling Bible stories, teaching phonics and anything else they can think of to keep the kids away from the drill. We also have a really cool thing called a Sabar. It is a device that is run by cranking it and it plays songs and stories in the local language. Alethia was using it and had about 100 kids around her listening to the story of Adam and Eve. We have not seen any kids come to Christ yet but we are praying that some will before we leave.
I wish I could put into words the beautiful sunsets the team experiences every night. As the sun slowly fades over the lake. Beautiful pinks, blues and reds shine through the clouds. Even though the team is away from the many comforts of home, they are blessed by God’s beautiful creation. Thank you for your prayers, parentsand family, we can feel them!
