Rhonda Morse, a member of Holy Apotles', Sioux Falls, just returned from The Sudan. She's part of the South Dakota team that is helping build a water well and school there. This is from her email:
The trip was fantastic and the efforts for Moses's village so worthwhile. It is a wonderful community with good people but so little contact with the outside world and means to improve. Clean water and an education will help this process. We were very happy to find three churches in his village - Episcopal, Presbyterian, and Catholic. Presently, we have 3 trucks en route from Uganda to his village, carrying 45 tons of materials for constructing the school. The water well should be drilled this week. Progress is being made because of the contributions made by many of you. Thank you!!
