Jerry, Amy, and Shaban had an incredible mission in the gold mine area of Geita. Amy did four seminars with Jerry and Shaban assisting in the pumps and filters area. One seminar (designed for twenty people) had over 75 people in attendance, but Amy just plowed ahead and taught all of them as best she could. They made the first biosand filter there, the first hand-made pump from local supplies, and doused for places for wells. The German missionaries there were very pleased as were all those who came and learned. We will miss Amy and Jerry, but they deserve a lot of rest. They worked very hard and made a real difference here--as every visitor to Maisha Na Maji has done.
