New Borehole, Seva leaves and Happy Easter!
We are getting some rain late in the season—more in April than we had in February and March. It’s too late for the crops but a great help to our water table and for drinking water in the coming dry season! Definitely weird to have this rain now. It should be getting cooler and dry! With Seva and Elliot, my visitors, we have enjoyed going out with Major to visit some of his churches away from the mission. It is always a fun time for us and the churches. This week we got the hand pump borehole that was donated by the Gulaliev family of NYC who donated this is in memory of their parents. This has helped our pregnant women who were getting up at 4 a.m. to go join the queue 2 kms away to get water—now they walk very close and pump what they need as many times a day as they need. We are so thankful for this and the rains are giving us plenty of water! Seva, our visitor since early February left Wednesday to return to NYC. She will be writing her MCAT test to get into
