Arrival in Tanzania!

We landed after a smooth trip – 27 hours so far. Little sleep but BIG smiles! Leyton met us at airport with 4 vehicles and a few familiar faces from last year. We loaded ALL bags (no missing bags!) and split up to head to the hotel about a 30 minute drive from the airport in Kilimanjaro. It is pretty quiet out because it is 3 or so in the morning here!  We are tired from two LONG (but smooth) flights. Seating on flights was perfect.

It is hard to believe that a year has passed since we sent the first team to Toloha Village. All we knew at that point was the villagers needed water and we wanted to help! God has done A LOT in just a year. We now have definite plans to pipe water in from a mountain stream with a budget of ~$170,000. We held a fundraising banquet and auction in November raising $35,000. In March we held our 2nd annual Water Walk and had over 150 participants from across the community raising $28,000! We’ve seen many individuals both young and old be moved by the story of Toloha. People across this community...
