The initial drilling was unsuccessful and several sites around the village showed no sign of water. The drilling company decided to give up but Christine and the Pastor asked them to wait overnight and then drill 5 more metres down in the morning at the last site. The company agreed and left the rig in place overnight.
The whole village then prayed all night. In the morning the drilling recommenced and water quickly followed! Wow! The well was 85 metres deep, another one of the deepest drills yet. Quite young children were seen praying and thanking God for the water.
The village is so remote that we have not visited it yet, we did try in 2015 but were stopped by a puncture and the terrible roads. The made up roads only go so far and then you have to drive across the bush. We were told that the village had been transformed by the well.
