Monday Musings – 19/04/10
Well, RTC in partnership with Ron Hills has passed the first test toward water purification on the Continent of Africa.
On Wednesday of this week Ron and Bishop Adoyo filtered water that was drawn from a watering hole used by farm animals. Using a water purification system that Ron assembled back in Canada, they put the water through a crude but effective process of filtration. As you can see by the picture, the results were amazing as dirty and disease filled water came through the system crystal clear. Presently we are awaiting the test results to see how much of the bacteria have been filtered through the system. So, for now we have a cup of clean water, but our goal is to have a cup of purified water!!!
Today, Ron and I leave for a five day trip with Bishop Adoyo into the Turkana and Marsbit region of Kenya. In these semi-arid conditions we will spend time with the Samburu and Rendile tribes. Driving by day and tenting by night we look forward to braving the Kenyan elements (not bad for a guy whose idea of camping is the Holiday Inn Express). While there, Ron will use available resources and materials found in the area to set up another test of the purification system. We will take as much video and pictures as we can so that you can live the experience with us.
It has been suggested that we are in for the trip of a lifetime so put your seatbelts on (be assured we will) and keep watching for details.
Until next time…
