Progress Report on the Well Project in Ethiopia

I just wanted to give a quick update on the incredible outpouring of support we have received over the past few days for the fresh-water well project in Ethiopia (at our Trees of Glory care-point).  As of tonight we have received a total of $10,216 toward the fund - with only about $15,000 left to raise.

With the current drought conditions in Ethiopia (and the entire Horn of Africa) this project is especially urgent.  I am hopeful that by the time our travel team leaves for Ethiopia in November, the funds will have been raised and the drilling can begin!!!

Would YOU consider making a donation so we can drill a well at Trees of Glory care-point (located 2 hours north of Addis Ababa, Ethiopia).  This care-point is currently serving 100 orphaned and destitute children with no running water - and we are enrolling 40 more children by September.  The director at Trees of Glory plans to serve 300+ children once they have a well on the property!
