I wrote last month that the water filters for which the girls and I campaigned last year and this year had arrived in Cambodia. Part of that was true. They did arrive in Cambodia. However, they did not get delivered to the village near Battambang in mid-July as planned.
Praise God. He is never late!
God arranged for Ben (who was delivering the water filters from Colorado) to by chance run into Bona (who is from the village near Battambang where the filters were to be delivered) at a conference in an entirely different province in Cambodia. Only God can do this! So Bona was able to deliver the filters himself to his home village instead of relying on someone else to do it for him. Hallelujah! What a divine blessing this was.
Eleven families (and probably more because these families will share with others) now have access to clean water. I want to give a big thumbs up to Jaynee and Justine and their friend Paige who spent two days shelling pecans to raise money for these filters.
This blessing comes at such a God-inspired time as another Cambodian friend, Vuthy, has been suffering from terrible stomach sickness. He was recently diagnosed with H-Pylori infection, a microbial “bug” generally spread through contaminated water or food. Vuthy was fortunate enough to have the funds to see a doctor and receive the simple antibiotics needed to treat the infection.
Please pray that those in Bona’s village, many of whom also suffer chronic stomach pain, will be able to receive the same treatment and that the water filters will prevent further infections in the children and adults living in the village.
