The press was also there so we are looking for the article in the local paper. I hope we can find one. The senior couple in Tawau, the Atkinson's, are going to keep their eye out for the paper article.
The Rotary Club arranged the closing ceremony and then informed us when it would be. They should have consulted with us, but they didn't. They set it up for Sunday morning, not what we wanted, but we were stuck. We had to go and represent LDS Charities and the church. Here are some pictures from the site:
I don't want this blog to be too big byte wise so I will send more pictures later. So many of the people in the village told us how grateful they are to have clean water coming right to their homes. They told us their children have not been so sick since they started having clean water. All the credit for this project goes to the Larson's who were here before us. They helped develop it and get it off the ground. We just did the follow-up work, but I am so proud we could be a part of this project and represent the Church. The church is really doing amazing things here in Malaysia. Everyone who is a member of the church should feel great pride! What a difference it has made in so many lives. Can you imagine never having clean water in your home and having to carry every drop you used from a far away spring? Can you imagine the joy you would feel when you could just turn on a tap and get a drink that wasn't going to make you or your children sick, or you could even just take a shower in privacy? I know we shouldn't be proud, but be proud of what the church is doing here and in 160 other countries throughout the world. I am. Love to All E/S Read
