Day 2… Hiriga Well Dedication Continued

The ceremony to dedicate the well was very moving.  They asked me to cut the ribbon (vine) in front of the well.  Then they asked several children to come and put their hands on the pump.  Tom and I also put our hands on the pump.  We pumped 8 times and Tome and I released the pump and the children continued to pump the water.  This symbolized our real easing the well to the hands of the village.  Then there were prayers for blessing the well and the people of Hiriga.

Day 2… Hiriga Well Dedication

I am going to do several postings about the Dress A Girl Well Dedication.  It was an incredibly emotional day for me.  I have been to several well dedications but have never seen so many people.  All of you that joined together to make this clean water happen… you have impacted 1000's of lives!!  Thank you so so so much.  Today I want to share with you the size of the crowd and our welcome… I had the privilege of speaking at the dedication.  I brought your greetings to people people of Hiriga and shared how much we love them.

Our Welcome...

Day 2… Making Scarves

We met with several ladies and taught them to make yarn scarves.  These scarves could be made and sold as part of their businesses!  Rose Anne and Lisa had bags of yarn all precut and ready to go.

Day 2… Morning… Shine Outreach

We had the opportunity to visit this boarding school where I met the primary teacher and visited her classroom.  Then the older students did a welcoming song and we saw the dormitories and grounds.
