Chetek Lutheran

Dear Friends, We want to thank everyone at Chetek Lutheran Church for the support you have given us with our clean water well project in Malawi. Through the women of the church, those who supported the June mission appeal, those who bought things at our garage sale, those who gave special gifts, those who bought bracelets when we were with you on July 22, and so many of you who have remembered our project in your prayers, you have been so helpful in many ways. Our goal was first to put in a shallow well at a cost of about $3,500. Because of the many sources of support from all over the country, we were able to go for a deep-drilled bore well at a cost of $10,000. We easily passed that goal, and then we decided to put in a second deep-drilled bore well. That meant we had to raise a total of $20,000. We are pleased to say that now, even with a few months remaining, we are over $16,000, so we know we will reach the $20,000. Again, thank you very much. Emma and Claire Herek
