Living Water 2017 Ministry

Living Water 2017 Ministry

The community of Nyakapela B, Zambia, was home to 25 families. Although it was a small community, they did have a local health clinic to provide for the residents’ medical needs and a local church to address the spiritual needs of the community. One essential item that the community was lacking was safe water. The existing well in Nyakapela B had fallen into disrepair, and residents had resorted to using a local stream for their water needs.

WOW!

WOW!

4th-6th Graders had a fun-filled year with fun, cool events. The school year started with ice blocking and ice cream and ended with a daylong adventure trip to Wahooz In Boise. In between was bowling, pizza, sledding and wacky gym games.
