Thideerkuppam, Kallakkudi

UPDATE (3/19/2009): This location was actually home to 2 new wells.  The area is densely populated.  From their visit at the dedication, our partner reported…

The project was located next to a new building which was undergoing construction.  The evening was approaching and the scene was quite festive.  Before we knew it there were over a hundred people crowding around us and so after finding chairs to sit in and sharing the gospel we were given Sprite and some biscuits which was their way of saying thanks.

Earlier report…

This well was completed in the last few weeks and was dedicated just days ago.  We’ll be updating this post with GPS coordinates and a brief report soon.

But, since pictures tell such a great story, we could hardly wait to get them posted.

This well is one of the first 8 wells funded by Northview Christian Church, through The Water Project and implemented by Wells for Life.
