With the well complete in Marose, Glenn, Vince, and the others have moved the well-drilling equipment to Drigeon, where they’ve made steady progress. The first 100 feet came quickly. Then they ran into heavy clay, which is difficult to drill through. But they are pressing forward, hoping to complete this well, too.
Drigeon is a village where the Port-au-Prince and Tricotte Churches cooperated in an evangelistic crusade in 1997. Then, in 1998, the first year of Starfish Ministries, we built a building for the newly planted Church. In 2001, Starfish Ministries began administration of a school there, and the following year added the feeding program (when the feeding program was added to all of the schools). The Church and the school in Drigeon have continued to thrive, and it’s exciting to anticipate bringing clean drinking water to the village now, too.
Serving the Lord together,
