Water Holes It Is!!!

April and May have shown us that water holes are where it's at! The water has come down from the mountains a couple times to keep the holes filled.

"The Big Water Hole"...FULL!

"The New Water Hole"...FULL!

"The Airstrip Water Hole"...FULL, literally to overflowing. It actually did overflow, and fell into Manis' garden below.

That means trees stay watered (via water truck taking from the water holes).

That means animals stay watered.

(Technically, these sheep are drinking out of the ravine that brings the water to us...but it's the same idea.)

That means people have water to use (while we work on solutions for clean water).

That means that we can experiment with irrigation.

This is a new garden space at DDL! The water is being pumped from "The Big Water Hole" through a canal system.

We are so thankful! And we are encouraged and reinforced in our decision to put all our focus on digging more and bigger and better water holes.

A few more pictures:

Water rushing through the ravine. It gets diverted from here into water holes.

Sometimes, you get stuck on one side...

Canals divert the water into the water hole.

Here's what it looks like when it is raining in the hills (ie, at the head of the ravines):

He makes springs pour water into the ravines; it flows between the mountains. They give water to all the beasts of the field; the wild donkeys quench their thirst.

Psalm 104:10-11
