"Papa's Well" is done! Before Christmas!

Isn't this amazing and gratifying? 

"Papa's Well"--the new well in Zebedia Village opened today! Children are celebrating clean water.

Pastor Dennis Singini did a great job of project management. "What a Christmas Gift to this community," Dennis reports. 



The final sponsor's plate is not yet a fixed to the pump, but an inscription was done by the Village Chief in the cement base after the well was drilled and a Goat as a gift given to the American sponsor who wants to remain anonymous.

Dennis was given a goat and received it on behalf of the Sponsor as a gesture of Appreciation for helping them.

And I love what the Village Chief had previously said to Dennis (below). 
"What good would come from Bethlehem? Village headman Zebedia asked me? We were forsaken and we were told that we are not worthy to have a borehole here, but today God has answered our prayer. People are coming and ask us what has happened that we can have clean water right here in our vil…

New Pump Provided for Water Store at Katikara Trading Centre

Uganda Mission Update on Water Store

Friends of WorldHope Corps and Communities of Shalom: 

Here's an urgent update from our mission partner, Br. Julius in Katikara, at Trading Centre in Western Uganda.  We're trying to raise $2,300 this month to meet the need. Please help us if you can.




Greetings and best regards from Uganda:
We have ended the rainy season and now the dry period has started, December, January, February and early March we anticipate best performance of the water project in Katikara Trading Centre. There are only two boreholes and our Water Store serving a population of more than 6000.

Its been two weeks now without water in the trading centre. This is a very tricky situation to me and the entire population looks at our project as the only Savior.
It’s so unfortunate that our pump has effectively served for only one year, h…
