We are thankful for Thomas, our new brother in Christ! Thomas lives in the Kisii region of Kenya where we were able to drill a well just last week (Water for Kisii story). Before the well was drilled, Thomas and his neighbors used a hand dug pond that they shared with animals. When the pond dried up, they would then go to the Masai community for water, but when this source also began to run dry, communal clashes ensued resulting in deaths and injuries. In one of those clashes, Thomas lost one of his eyes.
He was so emotional as he explained the situation that led to the loss of his eye and now seeing a water well being drilled in his community. We explained that the well was drilled by Christians in the name of Christ. That day, he accepted Christ and was baptized!
