Yikes! We need clean water!

We draw our water every day from a hand pump across the road from our school in Western Kenya, Kiwanda Cha Tumaini Christian Academy. Today, the pump has failed.

I am thankful for these plastic buckets that we purchased last year for the pastors in attendance at The Hope of Africa School of Theology. They were able to draw water from the same well for their bucket baths each day. Now, those same buckets have been employed by our children to carry water from a nearby stream.

We are trying to bring in “clean” water via our piki-piki (motorbike) for drinking, and we have tried over the course of the past year to provide immunizations to our kiddos, protecting them from typhoid.

We have found a piece of land for sale nearby, just lacking the significant funds to buy it. When we do, it has a well in place, plus electricity.

In the meantime, please consider helping us to insure that these precious children have clean water to drink. A small monthly donation through PayPal would make a huge difference. Or perhaps you would consider helping us purchase land for our permanent home.

“Pure and undefiled religion in the sight of our God and Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their distress, and to keep oneself unstained by the world.” (James 1:27)
