When Your Well Runs Dry

This has been a particularly dry year for us and while having a well seems almost… romantic.


I can assure you that running out of water doesn’t come close to making the “Top Ten Ways to Romance Your Wife”.

  1. Doug,
    I Love your humor and insights. I am starting to read Warriors in Hiding. Really good stuff. I get your humor.
    As far as running out of water, I have served on a small island in Colombia called Bocachica. Very poor and 1 well on the island used by the locals only to hand carry water to there small homes. The mission we stayed at for the week had a cistern under the mission that they hand dug.
    Water was brought from the mainland by boat. So in the 110 deg heat and after digging 4’x4’x5′ deep holes in very hard ground for the locals to have a latrine, we were blessed to bathe with a 5 gallon pail of water. The option was 1/2 the pail in the morning or the whole pail after working.
    Again, thank you for being a pastor, father, teacher, and all around good guy. Keep up the good work and God bless you, your family and your mission.
