This is where I found myself in mid-April, and it turned out to be one of the most unique experiences I've ever had. Honestly, my role was minimal. They had the project under control without me. But I took a lot of pictures and video, and really did help lift the huge unit a couple times.

The Eternal Impact of This Pump
In this Central Asia country, less than 1% are evangelical Christians. When I joined a pair of missionary engineers from Europe on this pump project, they had already been working with the local farmer for 4-5 months in preparation for this day. And I could see clearly that they had a relationship with this man and his family. They had labored alongside him for the opportunity to provide water for his farm but the Living Water, too.
Please pray for the over 5 million people in this unreached country, that they would have the opportunity to hear the gospel and respond. The pump experience, for me, was a lesson in ministry in a country where you have to be licensed by the government to teach the Bible and proclaim the Word in a church.
