Village of Miracles

Ken Hulme - 700 Club International Managing Director

Years ago, a new church was born in the Muslim village of Fayelar in Senegal, West Africa; and it was started because of a revival among the children.

“Jesus was alive in these children,” recalls Pastor Jookel, the man who was used by God to start the revival there. “They had the gifts of the Holy Spirit. They prayed for the sick and they were healed!”

But the church that started after the revival, and the village itself, struggled because they didn’t have enough water for crops or for drinking.

This semi-arid region has a 2-month growing season. The rest of the year is hot and dry with no rainfall.

“That’s when CBN offered to drill a well for the people of our village,” said Jookel.

But this wasn’t just any well. It is a deep-water well with an underground pump that can deliver up to 1,000 gallons of water an hour! The pump is powered by solar panels which quickly refills a large storage tank on a platform.

“This well is a like a precious gem for the village because the water is so pure!” said Pastor Jookel. “Today everyone came come and get clean water.”

Then to help the church, we added Israeli drip irrigation and a monitoring system so plants receive just the right amount of water needed to grow.

The system was made possible through our partnership with Israel’s Innovation Africa and the U-S based Alliance for Global Good.

The crops grew so well in that first season, that the church was able to hire its members to gather the harvest. And with the profits from the sale of the produce they were able to buy a second field. All of this is helping the church to grow.

“I thank all of the partners, especially CBN, Innovation Africa and the Alliance for Global Good. I thank all those who gave money for this work!” said Pastor Jookel in conclusion.
