It is finally here! Our very own water truck! It made it here yesterday afternoon… a few hours before our last cistern of water ran dry. The pump on the well is currently broken so the whole community (including us) has had a difficult time getting water. But yesterday, on its way here to the Plateau the driver stopped and filled up with water at a source about an hour and a half away.

Manis announced in church this morning that, in response to God’s blessing in providing this truck, we would do a water distribution this afternoon… as I write this they are still distributing…

Getting the pump set up…

all the hoses attached…
…and we’re ready! Unfortunately my camera memory ran out JUST when the water started gushing out… so fast that it knocked over a drum! I quickly erased some old pictures in time to catch…

…the drums all full of water!

They filled buckets from the drums as the pressure is too high on the pump to fill buckets with it.

PRAISE GOD FOR WATER!!!
The people were so excited and were thanking God for His provision. Everyone was getting to the point of desperation and even a few buckets are a huge relief at that point.

We had enough funds to cover the truck and getting the water tank built but fixing up the truck took more than we had anticipated. As a result we now owe $4000 on the truck. Please be in prayer with us that God would provide these funds in His perfect timing.
