The GWP is happy to report the progress of this last winter’s drilling Project and the prospects for the coming season. This past season saw the completion of the drilling on the International Children’s Care campus, completion of one of the concrete water storage reservoirs, and the completion of a well in Ixobel, a village outside of Poptun.
As a result of the generosity of Mt Baker Silo Company of Bellingham, Washington, who donated the steel forms, we were able to construct a 20 ft diameter by 20 high concrete water tower. It was completed in two visits by Lynn Bartholomew and his faithful volunteers from the Spokane Area with local help from students and workers. It was a big project, with the base pour being 18 yards mixed in three mixers. And then subsequent 12 yard pours for each time the forms were raised higher. No one got hurt, and the project was completed without incident.
The GWP was blessed by a grant from a Christian organization of businesspeople with $30,000.00, to devote to further work in Guatemala. With this money we will ship a newer drilling rig which we have to support further drilling efforts in the villages around the area of Poptun, Guatemala. We will also purchase supplies and equipment that we cannot obtain in Central America.
Please help us. We need money for fuel for the drilling and we need to buy many items that are necessary to support out project. Most of all, we need people who are willing to pray for our efforts and we invite anyone who feels willing, to come and help us drill.
We offer a life changing experiences. Not just the lives you change by giving them water, but your own, as you see the difference you can make in the world.
