In late September, Living Water Adopt-a-Child (LWAAC) successfully built our first water wells to help provide sources for clean, fresh water in Guatemala. The first well was drilled at our ministry center in Chixocol and the second well was completed in Zacualpa, Quiche. Both wells were drilled by our friends at the Living Water Wells Association (LWWA).

The first day of drilling in Chixocol was rough. Constant rain and cloudy weather made working conditions challenging, but the Lord honored our hard work – we drilled 140 feet into the ground on the first day! The next day, crews from LWAAC and LWWA drilled an additional 50 feet, allowing us to reach a large aquifer.

After completing the project in Chixocol,  our team moved to Zacualpa to begin work on our second well. We began by drilling 125 feet before mud and water stopped flowing and halted our progress. Unfortunately, we either hit a cave or crack in the limestone making it necessary for us to start over. After consulting with the drilling team, we filled up the hole and moved to a new drilling site. With God’s help, the well was completed a few days later.


We keep working hard for our brothers and sisters in Zacualpa.

Each well offers a much-needed source of freshwater for our feeding programs, churches, and local LWAAC offices. These projects would not have been possible without the tireless support of Jaime Torres from the LWWA, Todd Heath from Cedar Creek Church, and Robert Hunter from LWAAC Canada. It truly takes a community to make a global impact.
