Today was a terrific day! I thought about just posting photos and not writing any words, but the excitement of the day is too great for me to contain. I need to share it with you. I had many great and first-time experiences today and I’ll try as best as I can to keep my words few and just explain the photos to you.
Old water source for Alyet Village. Both cattle and people drink out of this murky puddle.
Can you imagine your son or daughter drinking this water?

The welcome we received from students of the Te-Ongora Primary School. Over 1,000 kids!

I hope you enjoyed these photos. It was a truly amazing day, one I will never forget. There’s nothing like witnessing all that God is doing here in-person with your own two eyes. If you have ever dreamed of taking a trip to Africa or wherever your heart leads you, I urge you to listen and go.
Lifewater International and Divine Waters Uganda provides safe water, sanitation and hygiene to people living in communities of extreme poverty all in the powerful name of Jesus Christ. I encourage you to check out their amazing work and decide if you can help either financially or prayerfully.
Thanks for reading.
