Quote of the Day: Give yourself fully to God. He will use you to accomplish great things on the condition that you believe much more in His love than in your own weakness. - Mother Teresa
I am much better today. The doctor is coming later to remove his equipment and free me to shower once more--everyone will be happy about that. In spite of a badly swollen ankle (see quote above), John went out to Karikakari to measure the well and douse for water sources. There is water there in the hand-dug well that is now at forty feet and needs another ten to get to the water. Unfortunately, the ten feet is solid rock, but they are going to persevere and reach that water. John will put a pump in for them as a start to his PEW program. After the water, they will work on beginning a school and John will work on getting a football (soccer to you) team going. Pastor Festo is doing a great job there. He was one of the first recipients of a free bicycle which has had so much work over the last seven years that he needs a new one--and he will get it. He wants a motorbike, but those are dangerous for our pastors and very, very expensive.
