Doubling the Blessing

???????????????????????????????Have you ever ordered yourself a meal and then found out you got a free dessert? How about receiving a gift you expected and then upon opening it discovered that the giver packed a little something else just to surprise you? It’s a wonderful feeling to be blessed more than you believed.

Hope Spring International is sending a blessing down to Dono-Manga, Chad in the form of a portable well drilling machine and a generator. This alone is more than a blessing to the people so desperate for clean water, but we have a chance to double that blessing in a unique way. Isn’t it wonderful when we see an opportunity that allows us to show the love, generosity and understanding of a people of Christ from across the ocean?

A shipping container containing this portable well drilling machine and generator will be on its way soon, but there is plenty of room left in this container for more blessings.

New rig has been tested and ready to ship!

The school children in Dono-Manga, Chad are learning English and what if they were standing by the adults unpacking this equipment and saw loads of Children’s books, writing tablets, chalk, pens, pencils and other school supplies? How big do you think those children’s smiles would be to receive gifts?

Although this is easily accomplished by single contributions, Hope Springs International would like to issue a challenge to double the blessing to our communities, schools, churches and other groups who feel led to help us fill the empty spaces of the container with gifts of love.

Director of Operations for Africa visits Dono-Manga

Earlier this week Rambi Ayala, our Director of Operations for Africa, arrived safely in Dono-Manga for an extended stay. After a difficult journey lasting four days with vehicle breakdowns and numerous security checks Rambi was met by Pierre Rimorbe our representative in Dono-Manga at the border between Cameroon and Chad. They traveled to Ndjamena the Capitol of Chad for a meeting with Pierre’s Cousin Dr. Miandjingar Yangar who works with the Federal Ministry of Health in Ndjamena. Dr. Yangar is originally from Dono-Manga. Rambi shared this report about their meeting.

“We were warmly received by Dr. Yangar and his family and treated graciously. I shared the mission and vision of Hope Springs with him this morning, telling what we have done, what we are presently doing and our intentions in the future. I further requested that he partner with us given the fact that he hails from Dono-Manga. He was very elated and happy to learn about all that Hope Springs is doing. On his last visit to DM he saw for himself the transformation that is taking place due to Hope Springs’ involvement there. He offered to pursue with vigor the registration of Hope Springs with the government, ensuring that when the drilling rig/medical equipment in the crate being shipped arrives it will be cleared duty free. He also offered to be a part of any coordinated medical team that will henceforth be visiting, and to help in any way possible as needs arise.”

Rambi and Pierre traveled to Dono-Manga the following day and arrived safely late that evening.

We continue to be so thankful for the way God continues to bless this ministry. Dr. Yangar’s eager backing of our efforts will open many doors important to the future of our efforts not only in Dono-Manga, but as we expand throughout Southern Chad.

One other blessing from this trip is our new 3G internet connection in Dono-Manga. Dono-Manga is an extremely remote area located 60 miles off the nearest paved road. The closest internet café is over 100 miles away. But thanks to new technology we now have a 3G phone modem and Rambi is able to send daily reports and pictures of his activities. So stay tuned for more reports from Rambi’s visit to Dono-Manga.
