Oh Well!

Unpacking can certainly be a big task, this I know from years of experience, this move to Arrowhead is actually the thirteenth time I've packed and unpacked. We are taking a bit of time to do it, because we are doing some painting and things beforehand so we won't have to do it later on, after we're all settled in. But it is coming along, I think we'll be all done with any painting and building this week and should be right at home by the end of next week.

We've had a busy week at Arrowhead. On Monday we got a call from a local Well Drilling company, the owner, Mr. Mowat had been to our men's breakfast and had offered to drill a new well for Arrowhead. He came on Monday afternoon for a look, and soon returned with his trucks. Over the course of the next day or two, Mowat's Well Drilling sunk a 215 foot deep 10" well. They capped it yesterday and we will be testing the water in the next week or two. The first response from the well was 10 to 12 GPM, which is a massive improvement over our old well. We had been having trouble keeping enough water during busy times, but we shouldn't have any trouble now! Mowat's Well Drilling has done this work as a donation to the camp! Praise the Lord!
