Kili Climb 2013 – Day 3

After a good sleep (for some) we were on the road by 10 am. Due to the unusually heavy recent rains, the roads to Loiborsoit were not easily passable. In light of that, we headed to another site in Kilimamoja, where a well was being dug.

On the way, some of the vehicles were able to see giraffe and zebra running wild, merely 70 yards off the roadway.

We ate lunch overlooking beautiful Manyara crater. Representatives of WorldServe, Africa6000, James River Assembly, and Glad Tidings, met with village leaders of kilimamoja. This village has NO safe water source, just unreliable surface water ponds. The villagers walk 10-15 kilometers to the next village to get water. They have two primary schools servicing 1600 students. One school has 950 kids, 10 classrooms.

Although we were initially disappointed to not get to Lobersoit, the meeting and potential to bless this village was encouraging. We continued on to Ngorongoro crater, where we will spend the night.
