A fun idea helping Africa

Last night we were hanging out with a friend who is in love with Africa and is going back to do missions and development work of some sort.

In today's news, First Lady Laura Bush will be touring an installation of a PlayPump system that uses kids playground equipment to pump clean water from their town well. What an awesome idea.

Click on the picture to read more about this awesome, ingenious project. If you're so inclined you can even financially support this project through the link. (I get no proceeds. Just passing on the info.)

Hey Shawn...

Just wanted to say "hi" and thanks for stopping by my blog site a few weeks ago. I told Bryan about your visit and sent him a link to your site. (I'm trying to get him to start blogging too...). It's always fun to get back in touch with JBU friends.

Bryan's e-mail address is bryan(at)burwicks(dot)com; and if you visit me at this week, there's a chance to win the newest Nooma video by Rob Bell.

Hope you and your family are having a great summer!
