"This life therefore, is not godliness but the process of becoming godly, not health but getting well, not being but becoming, not rest but exercise. We are not now what we shall be, but we are on the way. The process is not yet finished, but it is actively going on. This is not the goal, but it is the right road. At present, everything does not gleam and sparkle, but everything is being cleansed." --Martin Luther

We could use some very specific prayers. Today the well pump quit working. I worked on it most of the morning, thinking it may be a wiring or breaker issue. I finally figured it was the pump. I was really hoping it was something else. And of course we are not close to the city (or in the states). You just don’t call up and have it taken care of same day. It is a process just like everything else. Tonight we are pulling the pump so we can bring it in so we can make sure we get the correct replacement. So that means we have had no water all day today and probably won’t tomorrow. We have been getting water from the river for the school and I have the 100 gal tank that I put up in the rafters so we are okay until tomorrow. There are no showers or baths, no flushing unless absolutely necessary. Ate on paper plates tonight and wiped up everyone with the wet wipes. We are praying by Sunday or Monday to have it up and pumping. By then the gardens are definitely going to need it. We have to get it going by Tuesday; the next American team will arrive here early afternoon. I will be going in to meet them at the airport in the early am.
