We made it!
One hundred thirty-one days ago my sons suggested, and then we all agreed, to make and sell soap to earn money to buy a well for a village in drought-ridden central Africa. What began as a quick viewing of a few you-tube videos on the crisis morphed into an all-consuming family ministry.
And now, we made it. October 30, 2011- March 9, 2012. 131 days. 1622 bars of soap made. 1300 bars sold. $3900 brought in. $ 1100 spent on supplies. $2800 left. $2600 on it’s way to Africa. $200 ready for the next well. Yes, I said “the next well” because they want to keep going.
