Welcome to the Water to Wine Project Blog.
We are finishing up some last minute preparations for the trip to Tanzania and will be flying out tomorrow morning at 6:30.
Be sure to check back for updates (videos, photos, and other posts) throughout the trip (whenever we get internet access!)
Thanks for your support and please keep us in your prayers!
Before we leave, we wanted to share a few pictures from the site of the the first well! As you can see, the current "well" is very shallow, uncovered, and to say that the water is very dirty would be an understatement.
It is so crazy to me that these are the actual people who will be drinking from this new well!
