Well Fund Update

So far, $915 has been raised for the TOG well fund!!!!!

Isn't that Awesome?

$600 of that is from two donors taking the challenge issued in my last post. Little by little, my friends at TOG are getting closer to having that well.

And let me tell you, it couldn't come at a better time.

Click over to this article on Tom Davis' blog (author of "Red Letters" and founder of Children's Hopechest) to read about the devastating effects of the drought in Ethiopia.

Officials are estimating that more than 4.5 million Ethiopian will be in need of emergency food this year--an increase of 40% from last year.

If you remember in the video posted here, Girma said that they were just praying that water would come from the sky as there is no water available at TOG.

They're waiting for the water to fall from the sky, but their country is already suffering from drought and wide spread food shortages.

Praise God, the children at TOG are in the sponsorship program, but think of all those that are not.

Remember that if TOG is able to drill a fresh water well, it changes things for an additional 100-200 children that can be added to the program. Not to mention the benefit it will have on the surrounding community, crops and livestock at TOG.

This is big.

We can be a part of the solution.

Check out the article and pray about how you can get involved.

I still have over 40 bracelets (that's $400 if they all sell) and of course you can just donate in any amount at the top left hand side of my blog.
