Nigerian Well Update
We’re getting really close! Our current balance is $4,518.35. That means we only have $981.65 left to raise before we will be fulfilling our goal of raising $5,500 for a well in Nigeria. More importantly, we only have $981.65 to raise before we can bless a community in Nigeria that struggles daily to obtain safe drinking water. We still have items for sale on the table, we’re still collecting pop cans, we still have a used book sale going on, we continue having monthly luncheons, and of course, you can always donate money by marking it and placing it in the collection plate. God has blessed us in so many ways, lets pass the blessing on to others and purchase this well ASAP!
