We had the privilege of sending Kieth Larrimore as our consultant down to Oaxaca, Mexico in May, 2006 to train over 20 local and foreign missionaries on well drilling and general appropriate water technologies. The trip was organized by Global Frontier Missions. The hope is that these newly equipped missionaries will branch out to several other countries as they are called.

We built and installed a simple Canzee pump out of PVC. In the end we were able to install a working, simple pump that the women and children were are able to use. We were surprised at the type of soil we found here. We expected the water table to be much shallower. The soil here had lots of hard clay. It is also somewhat expensive here for resources, costing approximately $375 to dig, build, and establish a pump and well system. But, the items we bought were some of the best supplies that I have found in Africa. The PVC was very thick and strong, and of high quality. With Patrick and Revelier being permanent fixtures there, I truly believe that more pumps will be built.
