Today the good Lord saw fit that things went smoothly. We ran the drill string to the bottom of the casing with no problems. This means there was no damage to the casing when it was dropped. With the drill string on bottom air was pumped to develop or flow the well to clean it up. There was a gusher of clean water coming out. Smiles on every face. Nelson, our leader was having fun getting wet and getting everyone else wet. We had Antonio, the leader of the village pose for a picture with the well in the background, and Nelson doused him with a bucket of water from the well like players dousing the coach after winning a game.
Many of the men of the village got to work levelling the ground around the well, then framed and poured the concrete slap. It started raining, so we had to stop and cover the wet cement. We left before the roads got too muddy and left the community to finish. Tomorrow we will run the pump and have the dedication.
Praise The Lord!
