Water from Heaven

Been working on a new project in Bundibugyo.  It’s a rainwater harvesting project for Christ School Bundibugyo, the secondary school that was started by WHM here in the district.  We’ve been concerned that the large increase in population in Nyahuka combined with the road project that there will be significant water outages for the school.  To head that off I am in the process of installing tanks and a  gutter system that will increase the storage capacity on the CSB campus as well as provide an alternate source for water in the case of extended outages of the current system.


The whole project has been a blessing and demonstration of God’s provision out here in Bundibugyo.  This project went from the drawing board to fully funded in a little under 2 weeks.  And now the tanks are being installed and only awaiting a little bit of plumbing to get them connected to the system.


In total we are adding four 10,000 liter tanks and gutters to the four biggest roofs that I could get my hands on. 


Thank you God for providing ‘Water from Heaven.’

And then Jesus answered her, “If you knew the gift of God,
and who it is that is saying to you, ‘Give me a drink,’
you would have asked him, and he would have given you living water.”
-John 4:10
