The children’s ministry of BridgePoint Church raised $700 towards funding a well in Uganda. We were so excited to be able to give that money towards this well in Makukuba that was dedicated just a few days ago. This community is going to be forever changed because of the presence of a clean and safe water source.
“In developing countries, about 80% of illnesses are linked to poor water and sanitation conditions. 1 out of every 5 deaths under the age of 5 worldwide is due to a water-related disease.” – www.thewaterproject.org
One of the hopes for investing in clean water for this community was not only for their health now, but also because meeting the physical needs is often a pathway to meeting their spiritual need. This is exactly what the Lord did through this well. Because of the help of the “born agains” a Muslim man in the community attended the dedication of the well and asked that a “born again” church be brought to the community.
God is definitely at work in Makukuba. There are three other teams going into Makukuba this summer. Please pray for us and these teams as we continue to serve in this village. Pray for the future pastor of this church that the Lord wants to rise up.
