Program Update

Fundraiser beads have arrived. If you want to help sell beads, let Jessica know. (Photos)

Water school starts on Saturday. To carpool, please plan on arriving at KLC by 7:30 AM Saturday. For everyone planning on attending water training Saturday-Wednesday, please email Jessica and confirm that you can attend. (This is important, I need to do a final check to see how many people we have). Fuel contributions will be about $30 per person if we take the church van. We have registered 8 people, so we have room for one or two more. I am told that most of the teaching is done without speaking, so if someone would like to attend, but doesn't speak much English, that is ok—please encourage them to attend.

A new opportunity: Today, I was introduced to a Burundian man named Prosper. He is flying from Nairobi to attend the water training, and he is willing to stay in town for a few more days to meet with other churches and mission teams to explain what he has done, and help to provide information. He has extensive experience building in Africa. He has built schools, orphanages and more in Burundi. Would anyone else be interested in meeting with Prosper one day after the water school for dinner or something to learn more about what they’re doing, and how we can apply what they know to our projects? Here is some information about his projects: - You can also download the YRWD/JRMD PowerPoint on the following link: and facebook page:

The next (scheduled) meeting is July 24th, at Kent Lutheran at 11:15 a.m.
