END OF YEAR NEWS
Thank you to everyone who has supported the work of Wells for Uganda during 2016.
We've had a good year both in south (Rakai District) and central (Mukono District) Uganda where we've seen several wells being dug.
To calculate how many people have benefited from these wells is quite difficult as people come from out-with the district to collect safe water. What can be used as a ball park figure is each well reaches at least 250 households and within each household there can be between 7 and 10 people we've set in place 8 wells multiplied by 7 = 14000 this figure could be much much higher.
The budget for each well has been set at £2000 and this figure covers absolutely everything associated with that well from a bag of cement to a complete India mark 2 pump to paying for 3 men's wages.
Its so good to report that we have been able to keep within that budget and indeed on a couple of occasions come in below that budget carrying forward any surplice to the next well.
Its been such a pleasure not only to dig a well for various communities but also to give the Church a vehicle to help share the good news of Jesus Christ with these communities.
It's wonderful to be able to tell people that this water has been possible because of the love God has for them. At each well we leave a reminder plaque with the Scripture from John 7:37-38
On the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried out, saying "if anyone thirsts, let him come to Me and drink. He who believes in Me as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water."
I read an article several years ago with title 'One well is never enough' as I've become more and more involved with digging wells in Uganda the truth of that article becomes more and more obvious to me
as soon as one well is dug and you rejoice over it you see the desperate need for yet another well lingering in the horizon.
So our plan is to start with the work again in early February 2017 in the Mukono District and we already know of sites where we want to place a well.
Although we are rapidly drawing to the end of yet another year the end for the need of wells in Uganda has not concluded. Can I ask if you would consider partnering with Wells for Uganda during 2017 and give financially again or for the fist time to this work. For those who would like to send a cheque you can do so by sending it to Wells for Uganda c/o Henderson 13 Fraser Avenue Carsie Blairgowrie Perthshire PH106QG you can also go on-line to www.churchontheway.net on-line store and give there by way of PayPal If you want to give by bank transfer get in touch and I will give you our bank details.
Thank you so much for your encouragement over this year.
Jesus wants to reach out touch you and give you new life.
But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for the Father is seeking such to worship Him.

“The Way” John 14:6 “ I am the way and the truth and the life. No-one comes to the Father except through me”. These are living words of Jesus Christ and Church on the Way is built on him alone.
Many people today who have tried various religions in the search for the meaning of life, have ultimately found that it is Jesus Christ and the power if His spirit that have brought about lasting change and enabled them to find purpose to living.
