In November, 2005, we sent our first official consultant to southern Sudan with a team from Branches to Sudan. The group brought out an EXP-50 and some VK-01 pump kits to this extremely remote area. Three wells were attempted, but no water was struck (see logs below). However, the measure of success is not in the water, but in the power of God to change lives. Locals were thoroughly trained in drilling and pump assembly. In addition, several promising follow-up drill sites were identified for the locals to drill on their own – a success that is far better for the villagers in the long run than if the foreign team had done it themselves.

Ben and Nikki Buckner are the local missionaries from New Tribes Mission who are stationed in Galilo village. They hosted our team while we were there in Papua New Guinea. For this trip, we ended up boring five different holes, casing two of them and putting a pump on one of them. There were also some existing wells (4 in all) that had been dug and cased. They just did not have pumps on them.
