Day 300 - The Decision has Been Made...

Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot,
nothing is going to get better. It's not.
~Dr. Seuss

I received AMAZING news today. A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! Ah-Maz-ing!

When we chose to partner with Charity:Water to build a well, we knew that we would NOT be able to specify the location of our well. Here is a blurb from their website:

"Charity: water currently works with more than 20 implementing water partners in 16 countries to assess and determine areas and communities of greatest need. To help reach those regions most effectively, we don't allow donors to designate where their water projects will be built."

Sooooooo, although we didn't know where (in the whole wide world) the Friends of Fanose well would be built, we KNEW it would be built in a place that NEEDED it and that was enough for us. I believed there was a great chance the well would be built in Africa...however I had NO IDEA where in Africa.

This evening I received an email from Charity:Water with these words:

"I wanted to let you know that your well will, in fact, be built in Ethiopia!"

I cannot tell you how happy I was to read those words. My cup runneth over. I am SO THANKFUL. What a miracle! Yipeeeeee!

Thank you guys soooooooooooooo much for supporting the Friends of Fanose well fund. Because of YOU guys, a WHOLE village of people in ETHIOPIA, WILL have access to CLEAN, FRESH, SAFE water!!!


I also got to eat lunch with my favorite first grader today :o)

A good day. A very good day!
