Pump it

rain 16 °C


"Let us not grow weary in well - doing"Galatians 6:9

So we started really getting down and dirty. We are learning how to use well drilling equipment to drill down up to 100 feet to find water. It's a pretty involved and mucky job, part of the process involves making 2 mud pits of oozing, blubbery dirt water. It was raining all day too and the soil became completely sodden.

Barry Flitcroft, the man who started Equip with the aim of giving people skills for using when they went out to work in Africa or wherever, spoke to us about Abraham in the morning saying that when Abraham was called, he didn't know where he was going. When he did settle down, he pitched his tent and then dug a well and then built an altar to God. Barry was saying that wherever we go, we will make our home, then we will dig our well for the people and hopefully our lives are a witness and testimony to God. When we leave that place, hopefully the well and the witness will remain.

I am finding this a steep learning curve - and especially don't like trying to understand the technical information. It reminds me of trying to understand things at uni. It was a long day too, we finished for the day at 10pm yesterday.
