We spent about three days in the village where the wells are being drilled. It's extremely unfortunate that I did not get a chance to visit well #1, nor the site for well #3. Time and transportation constraints kept me from being able to do that. We ended up traveling with a group of over 20 people, so the focus was not on my ministry.

The drilling rig arrived on Saturday morning, but we were already gone. Tom met them to sign the papers. We have pictures of the well being drilled, but none yet of it complete. It's finished, though, and well #3 should also be done or close to done at this point!
Another fun part of our trip was when we had our own little water walk right there in Kenya! We grabbed some buckets, walked about ten minutes to a water source, filled the buckets, tried to balance them on our heads [fail!], and returned to the homestead with them. It was really cool to have that experience in Africa, after our water walk fundraisers here in the states!
As soon as I have more details or pictures of the new wells, I shall post them here! Thank you for all the prayers and support!
