THANK YOU to all of you who contributed to the Water well project. It is in the process of being completed, now that the funds are there to carry out the project. The entire village of Badzuidjong is incredibly excited! Ernest and I made some calls to tell them that we had the funds and there was lots of laughter and yelling for joy!
These are the moments that make up my Peace Corps experience and make all the low points worth it! That is, seeing the amazing work that can be accomplished through me and my faith, hand in hand with others like you.
Special thanks to Lovonia, a contributor from New York that I have never spoken to before her donation. When I e-mailed and asked her why she contributed, she responded, “God told me to build a well in Africa. Its just that simple.”
We are together,
Tara L. Smith
