Walk The Talk Mission Visit
A Day In The Village: Kambarami, Zimbabwe
A village gathered as we drilled a well & it was an honor to be a part of the whole experience. Our first full day in Zimbabwe was filled with so many blessings. The purpose of coming to Zimbabwe was for a clean water project. Andrew had a vision to build a water well for a community in need of one last year & had raised $7000. Marcus and I joined the project & here we are, in Zimbabwe ready to see the vision come alive! The village chosen for the well is called Kambarami & it has a population of around 500 people.
I was so impressed at how the woman I was with (Sinodia), was able to carry a bucket of water on her head without holding it & walk around everywhere. She invited me into her home & made me rice, beans & avocado (her favorite meal). It was an honor to be fed by her. I absolutely love getting to see how people live & seeing their homes & eating a local meal.
About 4 hours had passed since we started drilling and the rig apparently broken down (the rig was the machine drilling the well). The workers kept trying to fix it, but after a couple of hours it still wasn’t working. Me & my team decided to go lay hands on the truck & pray for it. Apparently right before we prayed for it, the workers had given up & decided that the rig was broken & already called in another rig from Zambia, which was supposed to arrive the next day, that would have been really bad but they had no other choice. After the workers saw us pray, they decided to try again & the rig started right up again after a 2 hour breakdown! We were all so in awe of God & wow it was amazing! This is a day I will never forget!!!
