Tom Hawkins and Ron Publiski from the Living Water Mission

The goal of the Living Water Mission if to bring clean, safe and affordable drinking water to Kenya.
Since 2007 they have been providing clean drinking water to Kenya and their mission continues.
Their most recent trip to Kenya was recapped in a video presentation. This past year that had an extended dry season and the 2 wells the Mission put in last year held up great with plenty of water. The group flew into Eldoret, a major city on the Western side of Kenya.

When students have access to clean drinking water close to home, they can turn their focus to education With the wells, boys and girls are coming back to school.
Generators are used since they don't have electricity or the electricity is not consistent.
Phyllis and Horace's house feeds cloths and educates80 children who are orphans and who no one wants. All the children get some sort of training/education for adulthood so they can support themselves.
This year they built a well at a school that is being built. The deepest one yet at 60 feet. The water goes up into two 5,000 liter tanks.
Twiga Health Center serves up to 200 people a day and people are still lining up for water at a tank put up in 2010.
