            It was another very successful day in Revolución!

          Today the tech team (composed of people from both Versailles and Revolución) made great progress toward the completion of the water system.  Wiring and electricity are completed.  Plumbing is nearly finished and all the system components are in place.  Tomorrow the entire system should be up and functioning for its first test run. 

          The health education team continued with the important work of helping our partners learn how to bring to their community an understanding of the importance of clean water.  Using song, story, discussion and games, they worked with children and adults. 

          A few of us took a road trip today to visit a possible future site about 30 minutes from Revolución.  The Betania (Bethany) Presbyterian Church is in Escárcega, a small city where we stayed two years ago when installing a system in Miguel Colorado.  We were met by about a dozen church members who are very serious about wanting to bring good health to their families and neighbors.  This church’s membership is very interesting:  of its 42 members only 3 are men!  We took samples of the water for testing and spent a long time talking about the system and the entire process.  Both we and they will consider whether this is the right project at this time.

          It was a long, but good day.  Tomorrow it is possible we may be finished with the installation, depending on how things go.  Now off to sleep!
