2 days ago, I arrived to the heat of Trichy, 99 degrees is what my app read with no rain or cooling in sight; ahh India!
Despite the heat it was nice to be back, 7 months since my last visit, a new record for me. This trip was short and sweet, 2 days of project dedications, 15 in all.
Each day was filled with faces of children with stern looks until my camera came out and water started to flow; when these 2 things happened, their livelihood changed.
During my time here in Trichy I was reminded by Dhana, who is the founder of DPWA that our partnership has now stretched to 15 years and he’s still happy with me and trusts that I was still happy with him, to which I gave an affirmative reply. I don’t think either of us would have thought 15 years ago we would still be enjoying one another and seeing projects happen in so many different places, 378 to be exact.
The miracle of this trip was that when they gave me a project proposal for 14 places, I had money for only 5, but that is how God often works. He takes what you have, and he multiplies it, so much so that a few days before you travel you receive an email asking if it’s okay to use the left-over funds to drill a 15th project? Abundance and not scarcity is what the economy of Heaven is all about and for some reason I’m still trying to learn that.
Here are some photos highlighting this trip and in just 3 weeks I’ll be back as it’s that time of year; temperatures are slowly reducing, and God is motivating folks to give and support our work of making a difference through providing access to safe water.
On behalf of all the school kids and villages who now have access to clean water, Thank You for supporting Wells for Life!
