Peru

Clean water in Peru

Location: Iquitos, Peru

Project: Drill Training, sustainability training, bookkeeping, budgeting, setting up water systems in the jungle. Besides the classroom training the local team will be given a drilling rig and all the tools necessary to continue the work.

We will be working with Water4, and a local Peruvian church developing a working team of well drillers. They will be supplying the area with clean drinking water. The price that locals pay for their water is often as much as 43% of their monthly income. The new wells will be mostly in the church yards of the mission churches. They plan to drill two wells a month the next 1 1/2 year.

Date: Beginning May 2017

Status: Ongoing

 

 

Ghana

Well in Ghana

Location: Bole, and Tuna, Northern Region

Project: Drill two water wells, Well recovery and pump training, WASH (Hygiene) training

We will be working with Zion Community Church and Mobile Care Mission Ghana. The Northern Region is extremely dry forcing most women to walk up to 6 miles a day for water. The animals are suffering, growing crops in the dry season is impossible. They have so little water washing is not a consideration. They must use every drop for drinking and cooking. This causes many health issues. The area is remote and ignored by the government and other ministries. There are some wells that are not operating and because the local people have no training in repair they simply walk away and travel to the next village. We will be equipping (providing tools, parts), and training a local team from the church how to fix them. This will not only provide the much needed water but an opportunity to plant churches and disciple.

Tonle Sap Lake

Location: Phnom Penh, Tonle Sap lake

Project: Tonle Sap lake is home to over 1,000,000 ethnic Vietnamese. They live on the lake and use lake water for their drinking, bathing, laundry, toilet.  We will be working with EvanTell to provide filters for several church planters who live on the lake, and a Christian school. These filters will be a source of clean water and an avenue to tell of the “Living Water” of Christ as they share the water.

Philippines

Philippine water well

Location: Rosario, La Union, Luzon Philippines

Project: Drill two water wells for a community north of Manila, train a local team in drilling techniques, leave the equipment for an ongoing drilling ministry.

Train local team WASH (hygiene), teach in surrounding villages

The International Baptist Church Manila has established several churches in a small community north of Manila. They don’t have a source of clean water. We will be drilling on the church property. The new well will provide water for the church and be a source for the surrounding area, drawing them to the church. Hopefully, it will lead to opportunities for the church to minister to neighbors physically while meeting their spiritual needs.
