We will finally have water in San Hilarión by Chris
|Water tower built 14 years ago|
That is why we had a huge celebration for the "breaking ground" ceremony for the new potable water system.
All of the local dignitaries were there. They even invited us to say a small blessing over the "primera piedra" which translated means the "first stone".
We tried to capture some of the joy of the day with a few photos.
The photo on the right are a few of the ladies in town that are super excited that they will not have to carry water in buckets for much longer.
"A drop of water breaks a stone not by its force,
but by being constant. That is why the triumphs
belong to those who never surrender.
Many of the children in the schools made signs to celebrate the day.
This project will take about another 8 months or so to complete. Please pray for safe and speedy construction of this vital project for the health of the people in this area.
