Hi Qaz,

Sunday a missionary from Africa spoke at our Church. He was there to give an annual report and drum up money....
Our participation drilled 32 water wells.

A good friend of mine 'retired' from the mortgage industry to do exactly this... and he is having a *blast* with it! They've designed & are building hand-cranked well drills (check out the videos at their site.)

After reading one of JLC's annual pilgrimmage reports yesterday;
My wife & I were just talking about the various ways lay people can make a significant in-person participatory contribution, and we're beginning to actively look at the possibilities as well.

Life is good... time to help others discover the same!
