The well is complete!
When we arrived in the village we were greeted by the whole community. They had coffee and bread and we prayed (amazing experience) and dedicated the well site which was marked by flowers. It was a wonderful and excited time.
What we learned later however is that the community had been praying and fasting for the last THREE years for the well. Living Water was in the area a couple of years ago but was called to the coast and their village remained on the potential site list.
For THREE years, each week, this community would place flowers at the desired drill point and pray and fast as a community. Not only individually, but as a community. Probably my biggest take away this week is how much community was present. It was overwhelming and humbling. My prayer today is how to make changes in my own life to bring some of that community spirit home.
So last night the village hosted an amazing reception to mark the success and completion of the well. Their prayer had been answered! Let's have a party!
A place where we share our experiences and thoughts on ministry!
