The water continually made people sick. And during the dry summer season, the well would completely dry up.   Sadly, [. . .]

Thank you for partnering with us in prayer in 2016!

For most of her life, Tananki was a devout Hindu, observing all of the religious holidays and rituals. But her life was not filled with joy or peace.  Tananki’s home life was anything but tranquil.
