Helping Those in Need has Been an Important Part of Who We Are
Helping people in need is part of Bee Cave Drilling’s DNA. Since its inception, Bee Cave Drilling has been helping less fortunate individuals with their water supply needs. In addition to the work our employees do individually in their community and through their churches, we have had the privilege to work in other nations to supply communities with a clean, reliable water source and to provide training – both internationally and at home – to ministries that drill water wells for those who need them. Below is a partial list of the international mission trips we have been a part of. If you know of ministry opportunities that Bee Cave Drilling might be interested in, please let us know.
Nairobi, Kenya / Kibera, Kenya / Oltinga, Kenya / Namanga, Kenya / Cameroon
Invited by Living Water International, Jim Blair and former employee Bobby Roberts traveled to Nairobi, Kenya in 2004 to help train Kenyans to drill water wells. That was the beginning of an incredible chapter in the history of Bee Cave Drilling that continues to this day. Since that time, Bobby and his wife Mindy have made numerous trips to Africa to work with Living Waters and other ministries to not only provide clean water to rural villages, but to also train local Kenyans to drill water wells, form new communities to get people out of the urban slums, start orphanages, and technical training schools. Living Waters International continues to send individuals to the Bee Cave Drilling facility to be trained on how to drill water wells.
Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world. James 1:27
Feed the Kingdom has partnered with PackH2O
Having easy access to clean water is something that we often take for granted. Over 3.4 million people die each year from lack of clean water. Over 1 billion people do not have easy access to clean water. Woman and children usually bear the burden of daily water collection for their families. Every day the average woman living in a water stressed region will walk 3.5 miles while carrying 5 gallons of water that may have been contaminated by fuel or pesticides. Help break the chronic cycle of waterborne diseases in impoverished communities through the solar disinfection technology of a PackH2O back pack.
It is a life changing alternative to buckets and jerry cans designed to carry water home. The back pack is designed to ease the burden of carrying household water from access point to home. The water backpack also relieves the physical stress of carrying water by distributing the burden evenly on the wearers’ back. Light-weight and collapsible, it is easily shipped and stored.
