Update - good news!

We are half-way there, friends! $2,690 contributed! Nothing could make me happier today than to hear that we have raised 50% of what is needed to build a well for our friends in the Blanchard community of Port-au-Prince! Thanks to so many of you, all of this contributed in less than 2 months! I am praying that God will continue to bless this project - so please continue to help me share the word. I plan to give this effort a real push this month, emailing to lots of friends and acquaintances, with the hope that the well might be constructed in 2008!

Last evening I enjoyed a brief visit with Rolph and Sobie Richmere from Haiti. Rolph is a doctor who has practiced in P-A-P and Cap Haitian; Sobie is a resident physician continuing her studies in Cap Haitian. Sarah and I met them on our trip in December. Their work in the medical field, together with our contributions toward clean water, can make a real difference.

Again, thanks to so many of you who have so generously given to this cause. Blessings to you all!
