Sunday we met with the church in Masaga. This was one of the first congregations that we planted when we began working in the Siavonga District. It is a strong congregation.
We baptized 4 people that first day. One of them was the village headman. He is still a faithful member to this day and a keystone in the congregation.
It was a good day. It was cloudy so it was not too hot but it was humid. The attendance was down because a number of people were working in the fields.
We have been using funds received to work on several wells. In this instance we needed to pull a well apart and replace some parts. However, due to the low water table water is still sketchy.
We received a call several days ago from a head teacher at a school in the Kafue area. Their well was not working and what was needed was a chain. We were able to get the chain but we needed to get it to them. The solution…put it in an envelope and give it to a bus driver who would then deliver it. He would not do it for free but it would cost. Still it saves the 200+ km drive to deliver it.
An effective system all the same.
They received the chain later that day and the well was producing water by night.
