The month of May showcased the real talent of Wells of Life efforts to which our donors are willing to do in order to fund a well. Over 700 participants partook in funding 30 wells that will be drilled in the next 90 days.
May was also the month that I also received one of the greatest surprises I have ever received during my time at Wells of Life. During what I thought was a very routine invitation to say a few words to the students and faculty at St. Matthews Parish School in Pacific Palisades I was completely unprepared for what unfolded. In a few unbelievable minutes four wells were donated thanks to the efforts of this incredible school. Knowing how a school can be impacted by the invitation to change the world with the gift of water helps all of us understand that we are in a unique position to forge a new generation of servant leaders.
Sometimes an invitation can create the miracle of giving and May also marked the month when three more wells were donated by catcher, Austin Hedges from the San Diego Padres.
Finally, we are busy at work creating our annual donor trip to visit Wells in Uganda, which will take place in late August this year.
That's all for now. I look forward to sharing more amazing stories from Wells Of Life.
