Updated 5/23/2013: This water project has been a slow 3 1/2 year process but we have been faithful as well as the Lord and our Congolese brothers working on the dam/water project during our absence.
We are thankful for Round Rock UMC in Texas and the 'Drops of Grace' Ministry in that church. One of their goals is clean easily accessible water for the villagers. Water brings many blessings. We are blessed!
March 2011: These photos below show that we have moved a significant amount of good clay dirt to the dam site and are in the process of building the dam in the original position.
