24 Hour Water!

Posted: May 8, 2014 by Patrice Miles in Egbe Hosptial

Egbe Team, 

Missionary, Lenny Miles – construction foreman,  has announced another HUGE MILESTONE at Egbe, Nigeria.  I thought I would put a little pictorial together to remind all of us of this…. more than 1 year project headed by Engineer Will King which bring us to the point where we now have 24 hour water to the compound.   

The reservoir which was  built  50 years ago and was about ready to fall over and was leaking like a sieve … the hospital and compound has been operating from 3 water bore holes on the compound that would start to go dry in February and March which is the peak of the dry season.  It is tough on the missionaries and volunteers to try run a hospital with water buckets rather than running water which was the way it was!! 

The steps to get to where we are today! 

Drain the reservoir – rebuild the wall – back fill the wall with special clay – build new sand filter beds – install a new diesel water pump – lay 1 mile of 4 inch PVC pipe – celebrate the ability to now supply 5000 gallons a day to the entire hospital compound – (it is easy to write but a very difficult task) = another answer to prayer! 

Great Job – Will, Mark, Lenny, and Team!! 

Praise God.

    What a terrific job! I have no doubt that has been a huge task to accomplish! And will continue to be to maintain. Ps. 67.1-3 “May God be gracious to us and bless us and make his face shine on us – so that your ways may be known on earth, your salvation among all nations. May the peoples praise you, God; may all the peoples praise you.”
