Drilling Rig

This week we have some friends visiting us from Honiton Community Church in the UK. These two men, Trevor and John raised the support and came up with the plans for constructing a percussion drilling rig that is affordable for villagers and effective at drilling water wells in excess of 100 meters in depth.

So, they've begun the construction. We hope to test the rig here on the farm later in the week and then begin to teach zambians how to fabricate similar rigs. Today, I've been learning all about welding.

On another note, it looks like our Internet situation isn't going to be resolved anytime soon. It appears like our provider is going out of business. If you need to get in touch with us in the meantime, please send emails to Thank you c
