So is this the Beginning?

You are witnessing the final placement of the drill before they begin work on our new well! And yep, I told them to put it there, so we’re all hoping there is actually water. Granted it wasn’t exactly a random guess, we have reason to believe there will be plenty of water to support our little orphanage of nearly 800 people including staff. But it’s still a little scary.

As the truck backed the drill into place it creaked and groaned as old metal does. From the tent the workers sleep in at night drifted the sounds of ‘I Will Survive’ in Spanish. After everything we’ve been through in the last three weeks trying to get MacGregor to start work since we’d signed the contract and given our deposit, it’s nice to finally have them there.

We’ll see when they start drilling.
