This year Lakewood’s partnership with Living Water International (LWI) brought us to Honduras for the first time with LWI. Our team of seven arrived in San Pedro Sula amidst mountains of palm trees, and headed straight to the city of La Ceiba to spend our first night in the Central American country. The next day after visiting a local church in the area, we headed off to our work site: a little village by the name Agua Amarilla, which in Spanish translates to Yellow Water.

Our work began early on Monday morning. While half of the team prepped the site for drilling, the hygiene team members took a walk around the community to invite the moms and children of the area to hygiene and Bible classes throughout the week. Our team was able to build relationships with the moms and children during these classes as well as during our walks around the community. Our team got to witness salvations, pray with women and children, and create new memories that won’t be soon forgotten. One of the favorite highlights was witnessing a salvation in one of the women’s homes, as we were able to share the love of Christ with her and provide her with her own Bible.

Meanwhile, the drilling team was hard at work building the water well. Despite a slow start when the drill hit eight feet of solid rock, our drillers were able to push through and keep installing pipe after pipe for a total depth of 130 feet! With the help of some volunteers from the local community and the skilled Living Water staff, our team soon hit water, and the well was officially a success! The team was able to install the pump on Thursday morning, just in time for our well-dedication ceremony.

Our final day in Agua Amarilla was bittersweet. After a great well dedication ceremony, the team officially introduced the well to Agua Amarilla, and gave away hygiene packets donated from Lakewood Church members to the 60+ community members. This was a time for sharing, laughing, and thanking each other for the warm welcome and hard work. It was great for our team to witness the community so unified over the well and expectant of what it would bring for their future.
