Wow! So much has happened since I last wrote… I have to catch up!
First, one water hole is completed and work has started on a second, larger one. This second one will take months to complete as everything is done by hand but it will be able to hold a LOT of water when it is done.
Second, WE HAD RAIN!!! Thank you all so much for your prayers! We had one short hard rain and then a few days later it rained lightly all night and most of the next day!!! Though we didn’t get a whole lot of water in the cistern, it was the best kind of rain for the gardens because it had a chance to really soak into the soil and didn’t just run off.
Third, last night we had the Christmas program for the school children. They were so precious! They did a play of the Christmas Story, sang, recited poems, told jokes and more…
At the end of the night each child got a bag of food. Thank you so much to all of you who made it possible for us to provide food for the children and their families!
