Update: Nepal Water Project
The TCWM Nepal Water Team made up of two pastors and three engineers is making headway after some challenges getting the equipment into the country. The team arrived on Friday, but was stopped by customs officials who refused to allow the micro water treatment plants to pass. The argument was that the only relief items allowed to pass were food and water. But, God provided the necessary connections and relationships, gave the team favor with government officials, and the units were released.
“One system has been installed,” reports Pastor Tom Hatley, mission team leader, TCWM Board of Trustees member, and pastor of Immanuel Baptist Church in Rogers, Arkansas. “Tomorrow we will try to install two systems.”
Each micro water treatment plant is the size of a large suitcase, solar powered, and has an output of 2.5 gallons of water per minute. The multi-stage processing system both filters the water and destroys any remaining viruses, protozoa, bacteria or other biological matter utilizing a cold corona discharge Ozone generator.
The water systems are being permanently installed in strategic locations throughout Kathmandu and the surrounding area. Tens of thousands of Nepalis will receive safe, clean drinking water and “Living Water.”
