Drilling for a new well in Karumankudal village, Mandaikad in Tamil Nadu state began in early August. They anticipated needing to drill 200 feet, but they reached so much water at 175 feet that they had to stop drilling! When they tried to remove the drilling bit, it was stuck. After prayer, the Lord loosened it, and they were able to reverse it out of the well. At the dedication service on August 22, a crowd gathered for a message about “A Thirst For The Lord”. Pastor David used a passage from Psalm 42:1. Many gave their lives to the Lord!
