February Update

Our total as of February 1 is $3,375. We continue to make great progress towards our goal of $5,000 through the support of so many different people. We praise God for his blessings on this project and for the many lives that are, and will be, affected through it.

During January Leslie and I were invited to go share with the children of Bush Memorial Baptist Church. We were able to give a brief presentation about our project to bring clean water and the Gospel to the people of Sudan. They are going to partner with us this semester and raise money as well. We are thrilled to have these young ones as part of our growing team that God is using for his purpose in a country thousands of miles away.

When we made the choice of which country we wanted to be involved with, it was somewhat of a random decision. Neverthirst partners with three countries, and Sudan seemed like the best fit for us. Little did we know that we would be getting involved in this country during one of the most important times in the history of the country. As you man know, Sudan held an election during January to determine whether the southern part of the country will secede and become its own country. You can read more about it here, and some insight into the Christians in Sudan here.

Please join us in praying for Sudan as they move through this process, and particularly that the movement would take place without violence. Also please continue to pray that the Holy Spirit would move in the hearts of the communities in Sudan where these wells will be placed. We do not know the location yet, but God does. We pray that hearts would be tender to the Gospel when it is presented along with this clean water.
