Closing charity Malawi Mission Freshwater in IoM asked CART to identify places in need of a borehole to clear their residual funds. In total they funded 7 and one repair, CART facilitated establishing reliable contacts of proven trustworthiness and undertaking the administration. CART additionally funded 2 other boreholes in rural areas of the Anglican Diocese Of Upper Shire hard hit by first floods then drought.
Says Father Eston Pembamoyo:
At Kasonya, Matuwi, Mapeto and Njereza near John & Pauline Skill Centre where a borehole is drilled, men, women and children plucked branches and laid their wrappers on the road just as we do during Palm Sundays. They sung praising God for sending angels to see their water shortage problem. We were perplexed and would not believe what we heard and saw. In brief, they say THANK to CART and Fresh Water for coming to support them.
Although people from Mapeto and Njereza joined their friends in celebrations for the water, they themselves are further away and are still struggling for safe and clean water. I have attached to this email some pictures from Mapeto Village. I know that it was a miracle in my life to secure funds for four boreholes. I know boreholes are expensive, I do not think it will be easy to help us get more boreholes in future, but should God open hearts remembering water is life .
Through the borehole project, we have preached a lasting Gospel in Mangochi and Zomba. In all the four places I hear that because of nepotism and segregation by political party affiliation and tribalism, areas such as these are excluded from government developments. Many people now realise that the Church sees beyond tribal, party loyalty or religious beliefs to solve the problem.
I Thank you so much, you have made my work in the service of the community significant, it really makes true of the Scripture in John 10.10b that Christ has come that they people may have life in it fullness.
