Borehole Project - Update

Construction of the two boreholes located at satellite facilities for our partners Faith Alive Hospital is progressing well. At the Fobur site, the well was drilled last week and construction of the tank stand is almost complete, as the pictures here depict. Next the pipe casing will be installed so that the borehole can begin extracting water, and the permanent well figure will be erected. Meanwhile, surveying has commenced at the Andaha site and the construction team expects to begin drilling there this week. Both projects should be completed in the next few weeks, and we expect the wells to be operational by the end of the month. We are thrilled to be part of such a meaningful project, and share in the joys, nourishment, and improved-health that this project will provide to our Nigerian partner communities. To read more about NATIVITY:NIGERIA's support of water projects, check out some recent posts here. We will continue to post updates as the borehole project moves towards completion, and ask that you continue to pray for our partners' steadfast resolve to rise above the unrest in their region and seek God's peaceful blessing over the communities of Faith Alive Hospital and Anawim Home.

Easter Wishes from Anawim

Last week we received the following Easter message from Sister Oresoa and the community of Anawim Home in Gwagwalada, Nigeria. We continue to pray for our strategic partners, seeking God's protection and provision for their communities during the Easter holiday. Please join us tomorrow in participating in our monthly water fast. All day tomorrow, join us in drinking only water, in support and remembrance of our Nigerian partners.                

Happy Easter! Happy Easter!! Happy Easter!!!
The kids and everyone at Anawim Home wish you all 
the best that Easter blessings have to offer. May God's 
light and hope continue to lead you all in the right paths 
of fulfillment. You are all in our prayers, as we know 
that we are in yours. Take care and remain blessed.
