ITMI Director, Steve Evers is off to Africa again!
Steve is joined by ITMI Board Member, Jon Dekkers and Steve Lee, a journalist who writes for ITMI Monthly.
Here is a summary of what the guys will be up to on this trip.
In Zambia, the guys will meet with a contact who is beginning a ministry in isolated Lukulu, Zambia where ITMI has been involved with providing remote villages with access to clean, safe water. The follow up visits to these villages have been productive, too, so we are eager to see this impact expanded and built upon!
Our contact's plan is to equip the villagers to dig their own wells. This will allow more villages access to a well because it cuts costs. It also gives the village ownership and investment in the project.
And of course the final benefit is that it will allow our contact to build relationships and disciple the new and not-yet-believers there.
Steve Evers pumps water from newly drilled borehole, providing a village in Lukulu with clean, safe water.
