(peaceful music)

- [Narrator] Most of the day,Yeshoda toils in the fields

of her village.

Besides working in thefields and around the house,

she spends at least five hours everyday

getting water from a pita mile away from home.

- [Interpreter] I wake upearly in the morning at six,

I do household chores and getthe children ready for school.

Then I go fetch water,it's so far and difficult

that it hurts my back and neck.

- [Narrator] The whole villagefaced the same problems

and the pastor there wanted to help

but he didn't know what to do.

- [Interpreter] Water was abig challenge for everyone

and caused so much sickness.

I worried about all the families here.

I prayed in the presence of God

and then I heard about CBN.

- [Narrator] When the Pastor contacted us,

we quickly drilled a well for the village.

Now everyone has clean drinking water.

- [Interpreter] The wellis so close to our home.

I don't have to struggle walking so far.

My neck and back do not hurt anymore

and we do not get sick.

CBN came from far awayto dig this well for us.

Thank you so much.
