Where did I see God?

Where did I see God?
 
Once again, I was in Zambia, staying in the towns of Lundazi & Chipata.  There would be days of driving over 2 hours before getting to the first well.  My partner and I drove nearly 1,800 miles, and completed 96 wells.  As a result, over 2,400 households now have clean water, serving over 24,000 people!
 

Where was God?


-   Outside of Chipata, the villages were set in open plains with the mountains in the background.  How beautiful.
-   Villages’ gardens, so green, often next to the new wells
-   Women singing with wonderful harmony at the wells
-   Villages excitement (especially children) when the truck would arrive
-   Willingness of the villagers to help carry the hand pump parts to the well
-   Children shouting muzungu (white person)
-   Children wanting to hold hands with muzungu walking to/from the wells
-   The excitement of all the people trying to get a taste of the clean water from the new well
-     
Words cannot describe the feeling one has when you see clean water coming from a new well after walking by open contaminated water holes.
 
Where was God?  God was everywhere!
