Connection Ministries has received the money for water wells numbers 4 & 5! The funds should be transferred by January 14, with the drilling scheduled to start on the 28 of February. A protective wall will be built around each well, with a plaque also on each.
So far a total of five schools have been reached, but there are more asking for aid. Each school has up to 300 children who need access to clean water. This does not include the parents of the children, the workers at the school, and the general populace that also live nearby. As many as 2000 people can use one well regularly. The goal of ourselves and Pastor Tom Abungu is to place 10 more wells in the Siaya District before moving on to giving aid to the Maasai.
Pastor Tom Abungu thanks everyone for their support and he will try to attend the Water Walk this upcoming year.

We are now announcing the ability to give donations as gifts! A donation to H2O makes a great gift for holidays, graduations, and birthdays. Through this program, the mere existence of a person will result in the lives of other people being improved. Follow the link in the navigation bar above (see the picture below), and you will find a form. Fill out the information marked by a red star, and a card will be sent to the person whom the gift is being given to. The card will explain who we are, how they have helped, and what you've done for them. All we ask is that the donation be a minimum of $15, the cost of a pair of shoes for a child in need.

Well, sorry it's been so long since we've gotten anything up here; but we've been pretty busy as Angie's family has expanded again. Cade and I are going to try to keep some updates going on the blog.The big news is that wells #4 and #5 have been fully funded, due to the great efforts of many friends in the past several months. These two wells will be drilled in the near future at primary schools in the Siaya District of Western Kenya. And as soon as they're completed we will try to get some pictures posted. After seeing the water situation in East Africa with many folks walking long distances to get water, which often is from a dirty surface water source, we have become committed to helping develop more sources of clean water.
