AN OLD WELL WITH A NEW LIFE

In Genesis 26, there is a story about the Philistines filling the wells Abraham had dug with dirt and debris. Isaac reopens the wells by removing the debris.

It is amazing how stuff that used to work stops working.  Things are in a constant state of repair all around us.

This past week we repaired the well at the church and for the first time in almost 15 years water began to flow from the well to water the gardens at Church Farm.

I just wanted to post a big thank you the the following people to make this possible through their donations.

Rick Turner and sons from Turner pump and windmill company, Steve and Cindy Alward from High Gear Bikes, Nate Wood, Kate Pressman, Harold Potts, Michael Taylor, Virginia Jenkins, Pam Crawford, Paul and Jo Lummer, Gary Lummer, Natascha Lummer, Ester Summers Jeff and Tracie Scheffert,  Anden Scheffert, Michael Russel, Treba Pickering, Melvin and Linda Odell, Adam Arnold, Ray Wehrs, Norman Williams, Francis Clark, Jean Bloecher, Jason and Amber Dykstra, Nancy Edwards, Scott and Kim Floyd, Diane Gurle, Bob Blount, Rich at Coffee Roasters and Thomas Arnold.

These people helped us unstop a well that will water the church farm that will feed people – AWESOME AND GOOD ON THEM!

Here are just a few pictures of the well being unstopped.

The old pump comes out and the new one goes in.

Isaac reopened the wells that had been dug in the time of his father Abraham, which the Philistines had stopped up after Abraham died, and he gave them the same names his father had given them. Genesis 26:18 (niv)
