Many of you have asked why we were in Madagascar was it just for fun or we were working. Well a little of both! We went to check on the hospital and doctors that treat our missionaries. Visiting with the missionaries and checking on their health was also on the agenda.
While we we were there we we invited to a dedication of a water project that our church funded. The villagers dung the trenches and made the bricks and we supplied the pipes, cistern and pump for the water, along with the facets and cement. This project brought clean water to 12 villages and a school. With out clean water these people walked up to three miles to a stream for water. Most of the time the water is not sanitary and many children die from the bacteria in the water.

The toilet facilities are pit in the ground with bricks enclosing it! The little kids have to be careful or they will fall in! The one room school house
