Rain Barrel PicsDios es bueno!  Thanks to God's goodness and your generosity, we have now reached $14,000 in our fundraising efforts.  We now have enough to allow our partners in Xoy to begin construction on their water treatment building once we have completed our Water Information Survey and building plans.  We had planned to make our initial trip to Xoy this month, but that hasn't worked out.  Both Tem Major and Dale Davis, two of our founding team members, have undergone surgery and are now recuperating.  Both are doing well, but Dale will likely require additional treatment.  We are now hoping to make the trip during the first or second week in November.  We have said all along that the mission will happen, but it will happen in God's time.  Our partners in Xoy have been very patient and have been praying for Dale and Tem.  We have remained active in our fundraising efforts and have adopted painted rain barrels as a signature project - "rain water for your plants and clean water for Xoy."  Thank you and God bless you for your support!
