I am so tired I just want to be by myself.
Don met President Sesay over at the PVA at 9:00 to discuss more alternatives. Then he
was going to go to the community "Down the Hole". We got a report yesterday that
the spring box and two 10,000 liter Milla tanks are working exactly like we thought they
would and not only are the people of Down the Hole getting all the clean drinking water
they need but the community of Dwarzak is coming from the other side of the
mountain to get water. What a huge success this project has been. There are more
than 100,000 people getting clean drinking water. March is the driest month of the
year. Rivers and streams are just trickles. Hand-dug wells are dry. People suffer for
water. If they can afford it, they buy water. But many cannot afford it. The Down the
Hole project is known throughout Freetown. People know the Church of Jesus Christ of
Latter-Day Saints did the project and more doors than ever have been opened to the
young missionaries.
