Ann sèvi fòs pa nou ak resous pa nou pou chanje kominote pa nou! Let’s use the strength and resources we have to change our community! Men continue to work in the large water hole, enlarging it by hand. When the rain falls in the mountains, it is diverted into the hole, which can hold water for many weeks for everyone’s use. Things don’t change simply…

Sorry for another vehicle picture, but…well, we look at our vehicles a lot. The Ford water truck has its new tires, and was supposed to go for water today. Unfortunately, when Wenson was verifying the state of the vehicle, he discovered that the right, rear leaf spring was broken. This despite the fact that it…

Daily life on the Plateau is full of excruciating difficulties and surprising joys, of heart-sinking news and unlooked for encouragement, of fatiguing demands and re-energizing reminders, of unknowns and “unexpecteds” and “figure it outs” of all kinds.

  The pump for the well and the generator to run it have finally arrived and been installed!     They have been set up and running for a couple of weeks now.  We need to keep water running out of the well constantly for a while to help determine the quantity and quality of…

  The Well Project took center stage on the blog over the last couple weeks.  But, friends, there have been many other exciting things happening at the same time.  In our context, investing in people takes on so many different forms.  Let me catch you up on the ways our community has been moving forward,…

  In this photo, people are getting water from the newly dug well on the Lemuel garden land as it is being pumped out to test the water level.

  After spending the weekend with their families in Port-au-Prince, the well drilling team returned to the Plateau on Monday.  They re-blew out the hole that had filled back in on Friday afternoon.  The water continued to gush out, sometimes blowing up in the air!     Initial estimates have us at 30 gal/minute.  It…
