The "Miracle Waters" and other projects in Kenya

 

What follows are some brief descriptions of many of the projects in and around Masara.
The dates next to the video links are when the video was produced or last edited.

Masara Well-Borehole 9-04-20


Masara Well-Structure 10-23-20

Here's the deal, when we refer to miracle waters, we're not playing. We started out to help Peter fulfill a lifelong desire to bring pure, clean water to his tribal community of Masara, about 23 km west of Migori, Kenya, by funding the drilling of a borehole. For many decades their primary source of water has been streams and ground water polluted with sodium cyanide and mercury from mining in the region. People and animals die from it. So Peter did the research and cost estimates and we committed to the project. It didn't go smoothly, but it went well! The miracle borehole that God blessed them with can produce just under 900 gallons per hour round the clock. And the two 2600 gallon storage tanks that were installed are filled to overflowing in just a few hours each morning as the people access the abundance the pure, clean, sweet, water! The videos tell the story!

 

 

 

 

 

So, as I said, what started out to be a sizeable, but manageable, undertaking for Peter Kelly and Jubilee exploded to another level, all the metrics changed. We needed storage tanks, a structure to put them on, and a large submersible pump powered by solar panels since there was no electricity. Oh, and the controls to make it all function, and no one knew anything about any of that. The cost estimates tripled. What could we do? We'll we couldn't go back, so God paved the way forward! The extra finances came in without even having to ask. The learning curve got pressed out of measure, and what should have taken a week took from September to mid-November to complete, and all of this during the restrictions of a nationwide pandemic. But one by one, God provided funds, contacts, information, wisdom, and clarity of vision.

Today pure, clean, sweet, water is replacing the sodium cyanide and mercury laced water being used for drinking and cooking in Masara. The water is free to the people around the borehole, and efforts are underway to provide for the livestock as well. Springs of Relief has set up a water distribution enterprise to sell water to food vendors in surrounding "shopping centers" to cook with and sell to their customers. The revenue from the sales is providing income for SoR's efforts in ministering to the disadvantaged. We call it Springs of Relief for Springs of Relief! We know that the time will come when the SoR bottled water will be sold around the country. Supermarket managers in Migori have already heard the story of the "sweet" water and have asked if it's available for retail.  Consider this, God imagined a ministry to the downtrodden and disadvantaged that would also provide jobs for people out from its own resources by distributing life saving water to people who are literally dying from the water that they drink! God's plan is amazing, and He's bringing it to pass through the visions placed years ago in a young Kenyan and now a small group of people in Alabama. We've witnessed a miracle of God happen before our eyes!

The Springs of Relief Foundation is a part of Global Gospel Ministries. SoR has been primarily made up of outreach in rural areas to the disadvantaged. Now there is also the water and Academy at Masara. But Peter is not only the Director of Springs of Relief, he is also a pastor, as is the Chairman of SoR, his older brother, Bismarck Onyando Ndisc. There are currently 10 Global Gospel Fellowship Churches in the rural areas of Migori County, stretching up into the hill country of Homa Bay County to the northwest.
The church that Peter has pastored for years, Migori GGFC, has been relocated from it's cramped and deteriorating rented building on the western side of Migori Town to a spacious new facility built on it's own property in the beautiful area of Nyamome, outside of Migori, headed Masara. The whole story is quite a God thing! To be as brief as possible:

 

1) Jane gave a piece of property to Peter to someday build a house on.
2) A land owner heard of the kindness, and made adjoining property available to Jane.
3) Jane and her family had to prematurely move into their new house with no power or water, and thanks to covid
    school closure, no money. Jane is a teacher.
4) Plans for Migori GGFC to build a new building on rental property in Migori blew up.
5) Literally within in weeks, Jane has power and water next door to a new church built on Peter's property. (You can't
    make this up, and there is even more to the story.)

The heartfelt desire for a new facility was Peter's, providing the funds for the power, water, and construction was assigned to Jubilee. Shout Amen somebody!

And then there's the "Masara Electrical & Grinder" project. That is, bringing electricity to the property at Masara Village, and erecting a building to house a grinder or posho mill that the community can now access locally for grinding corn and flour. Not only are the people able to process their grains locally instead of having to transport it out and back, the fee that is charged is producing income for someone to oversee and maintain its operation with profits going to the work of SoR. God once again provided "The Team" with some new members and the desire, direction, and resources so that the project was fully funded and the grinder purchased back in March. The building was built in April, then the rains came, finally the crews came, and then the engineers came, and finally now, Kenya Power & Light has energized the lines, and the meters have finally been set!
God has changed the life of an entire area!

The Academy at Masara
May to Sept., 2021

Another massive undertaking for a small ministry has been the construction of The Springs of Relief Academy at Masara. Through His "team" God has provided for the construction of two 1600sqft buildings, containing 6 classrooms, and the SoR Director's office. The videos on the left and right show the construction phases. The video below shows the arrival of the first day of classes as the students began to enroll on April 26th, 2022.
The Academy's 1st Day!
