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.
