Praise God for Water
She spent so much time carrying water that she didn’t have time to do other things she needed to do. But now that her community has a borehole well, everything has changed.
“We’re now comfortable; we’re not stressed anymore,” she says. “Now, for one, we can spend more time cooking for our children, cleaning in the house, and there’s more time available to go to the (village) shopping center.”
Naomi said they’re also able to attend church worship service on the weekends because she has time to make breakfast and get the kids ready early enough. Before, there was no time to visit church, relatives, or sick people.
“When the borehole was drilled and people saw water coming from the ground, people realized there is a God,” Naomi says. “That has made more people go to church and pray.”
What if you and your friends could run or walk a 6k and guarantee clean water for a family like Naomi’s? You can!
