Durkees to present on Water of Life Well Drilling Project
MONROE - Missionaries Matt and Megan Durkee will be sharing their experiences while serving with The Water of Life Well Drilling Project with a presentation at 1 p.m. Thursday at the Monroe United Methodist Church, 2227 4th St. With fresh water in short supply, women and children must walk up to 10 miles in dangerous conditions to obtain clean water. In an effort to help these impoverished communities tap into the aquifer existing beneath the ground, Friends In Action International began the Water of Life Well Drilling Project in the African nation of Burkina Faso in 2006. Friends In Action International, operating from offices in the US, Canada and the United Kingdom, exists to facilitate and equip mission work around the world.
