Village Partnership provides clean water for Fengehun community
Two years ago, HCW partner church Ebenezer UMC committed to partner with Fengehun village to provide desperately needed clean water and sanitation solutions to the community. Initially delayed by country-wide COVID restrictions, the projects are now well under way in the capable hands of Elmer and Joann Reifel, missioners with Christians in Action Missions International who are based in Bo, Sierra Leone. 

The Reifels have completed the new fresh water well and have finished refurbishing the two older wells. They also began work on a new three-stall latrine. After the Fengehun projects are complete, they will begin similar projects in Lemblema, the site of another Village Partnership project.

"We are pleased to let you know that the new well, the first on our list of to-do's in Fengehun, is complete and fully operational," Joann Reifel reported. READ MORE

I will pour out my Spirit

For I will pour water on the thirsty land,
And streams on the dry ground;
I will pour out my Spirit on your offspring and my blessing on your descendants.
ο»ΏThey will spring up like grass in a meadow,
Like poplar trees by flowing streams.
