A new source of
clean drinking water has come to the community!
A filter system and storage tank were installed with the
help of the Texas Baptist Men organization who have been working with
the community (www.texasbaptistmen.org) and Just Water
(www.justwater.me). The project was finished and tested when the St Luke
group visited in February. Your donations to water and sanitation
projects help pay for much needed projects like this. Thank you all for
your work for and support of the people of Lecheria and the SHCJ mission
What is it?
Yes, it's a highway!!! A new by-pass is being built right on the east edge of Lechería! An overpass will cross the current access road to the community. Will there be access directly from the highway to the entrance of Lechería? We don't know yet. How will it affect life in the community? Hopefully, positively. Let's pray that it does.
"The 1st task in approaching another people, another culture, is to take off our shoes, for the place we are approaching is holy. Else, we find ourselves treading on other people's dreams, or worse, we may forget that God was there before our arrival." - Bishop Kenneth Cragg
