IamA Missionary who worked in Kenya to find the water they just found yesterday AMA!
Last year my church sent 110 high school students to do mission work in Kenya. We traveled all over Kibera and visited many tribes including the Massai tribe. We stayed for two weeks. The longest two weeks of my life. I went along to assist the students travel and to help provide water for the tribesmen. Two of my coworkers at the church went ahead to start a very special mission. They went in early June to start making arrangements for our arrival and to start drilling for water. They sent us reports and our hearts dropped every week to hear that time and time again drilling attempts had failed. When we arrived we pushed the team to drill 2 more times. Still nothing. One day one of the tribesmen took us on a walk to show us where they were getting their water for drinking and eating. As we neared the water we found that they were not the only ones using it. So were all of the local animals. Im not talking a few goats and sheep. Im talking everything, including lions and buffalo. And they all drank from it. This muddy, brown, disease ridden, shit filled muck. For the most part they survived. However many people still fell gravely ill and died. As we left after working in the slums and other schools all around Kenya we decided that there was more we could do for these people. So we purchased and installed two water holding tanks, I believe they were around 600 gallons each. Then we purchased them a truck to transport water to other people in the area and to go and get water from the nearest clean water source. Yesterday geologists struck water very near to where we were drilling. Knowing how much this water means to them is amazing. They needed it so badly.

EDIT: I am headed to work now. I will try and keep answering your comments as fast as I can but it will be slow going. Thanks for all your response guys!
EDIT 2:This is just becoming an r/atheism circle jerk. If you have any questions about the work that went on in Kenya feel free to post them here. If you have comments or questions about my religious beliefs I will no longer be answering those. You may direct religious questions to r/atheism and r/Christianity.
EDIT 3: Thanks for the Gold stranger!
