From Susan Keller, LAMB Board Chair
Dear LAMB family,
I am so very happy to tell you that this week we signed the Water Missions International (WMI) project agreement for the water project and sent our first check. WMI has ordered supplies and their team has arrived at San Buenaventura to begin mobilizing for Phase 1 of the project! WMI engineer, Selvin is pictured here with Amanda Scott, LAMB volunteer coordinator.
WMI anticipates that Phases 1, 2 and half of 3 will be completed by the end of December.
See the Water for LAMB page for the description of phases. http://www.lambinstitute.org/water
There has been some good tweaking of the original plan and the final numbers are coming in at approximately $233,000. We have sent the requested amount for this part of the work which was $147,543. We have raised to date $179,546. So we lack around $53,000.
This is another day closer to the day we will have water flowing from our own well. Thank you, Lord, for all the work that has been done by many, many people…beginning with Wheeler Conkling and David Gradiz back in 2007, continuing on with John McKinnon and David over the next many years studying, praying, planning…on to today with many months of work done by our great friends at WMI.
Please pray with us that God continue to lead and guide the work, protect the workers, bring complete success for this part of the project and provide for the remainder of the total cost.
With joy overflowing in the Lord,
Susan C. Keller
