Six spots are available on this trip. Sign-up deadline is July 21.

The team will arrive in country on the weekend and may enjoy church or relaxing with the locals. On Monday, work in the community begins. For four days, the team will work on the well or facilitate hygiene training. We attempt to drill a shallow-water well using a mud rotary hydraulic rig or an air drilling rig (depending on the location). The hygiene team provides hygiene education, teaches Bible lessons, and plays with the kids. Usually the team finishes on the fourth day of drilling, and then enjoys the well-dedication ceremony. If everything with the well is finished on Thursday, Friday is a day to rest and relax with options like shopping in an open-air market, a volcano tour, or dinner at the beach.

The objectives of the trip are to drill a shallow-water well, teach hygiene, encourage the villagers, and work with God in a way that is totally different from what you experience in North America. The trip is not only about bringing safe water and the gospel but also forming relationships with people in the village, the field staff, and the team. It is truly a life changing experience.
