On Tuesday we had an email from Christine. The heading was “New Well”. That meant only one thing – the drilling team had drilled another well. This one was at Valleé du Kou. We always love to hear news of new wells in Burkina Faso and we took time to thank the Lord for his goodness.
But then, on Wednesday morning, another email arrived. The heading this time was “To God be the glory”. Could this mean another well? Indeed, it could – and did. A drilling team had also gone to a village called Toeg Yamba which desperately needed water. Their nearest source of water used to be an open well 8km away. The pump will soon be fitted so they have clean water right in the village. That made two more wells in Burkina Faso in the week.
We have pictures from this village before the new well was drilled. Here are young boys fetching water from the open well.
And this is where they stored it when they returned from the open well with the full containers.
Another email arrived! The heading was “Dieu a fait encore!” “God has worked again!” This email told us that the drilling team had been to Naf-Banka and found water at 51 metres deep. So we had three more wells in Burkina Faso in the space of the week leading up to Easter.
When we have more pictures from these places, we will post fuller stories. But we are happy to know that many more people will now be able to enjoy that basic of all requirements – clean water. There now 112 wells in Burkina Faso that we have been able to provide. Click here for the full list.
Friday 06/04/2018 – hoping to hear of more wells in Burkina Faso soon!
We have four more wells in the “in progress” pile. Our prayer is that they will soon be in the “drilled” pile. There are also nearly forty in the “pending pile”. If you would like to help us turn “pending” into “in progress”, click here to see how to make a donation. We promise to spend all money donated on wells projects because trustees personally pay all other expenses.
