Jonah's Well

This is my Memorial Box Monday 
(A Place Called Simplicity)

I have waited a long time to post this update/video. This is truly the work of Almighty God. No man could have planned it this way. No person could have orchestrated the timing so perfectly. No human can write a story like this. Except God.

Today, In Uganda, Praise, her children and the entire village of Matugga-Bubaale will forever have access to safe, clean water. Why? Because a body of believers from Petaluma, CA stepped out in faith, believing that God is so much bigger than our present circumstances. 

And a precious little boy from Santa Rosa CA, born March 2, 2012, already in the hands of Jesus, will forever play a beautiful part in the lives of people half way around the world.

Why? Because it's all part of His grander plan.

Enjoy this video and see how all these pieces of this amazing story came together. 
After months of planning, preparing, and fundraising.... the well was completed on the 1 year anniversary of baby Jonah entering the arms of Jesus. - I pray we all see how huge this is. At lease I think it's huge! You can not put God in a box. E.V.E.R.

All the money was raised through a family started  (soon-to-be) non-profit that bakes fresh yummy bread and sells the bread. 100% of all the money raised goes to meet the urgent needs of orphans in Uganda. The ministry is called "Bread for Life Ministries".
My blog tells the whole story! 
Early June the website will be launched. 

God is good all the time and all the time GOD IS GOOD!

Praise HIM! 

We are so thankful for Linny and Dwight!
They have encouraged me to step out in faith in a way I never thought I could. Because of that, together, we are making a difference. It's so awesome.
(And fun. Literally!) 


  1. I found your blog from A Place Called Simplicity. We used to live in Santa Rosa! (We're near Sac now.) I'm sorry for the loss of your son, but I'm glad to see that good has come through your pain. We lost a son (second trimester miscarriage) many years ago. I hope this new well brings you comfort as well as remembrance.

    1. Hi Shecki,

      Thank you for your comment! Jonah is actually not my son. He is the son of a couple in our church. We were able to do this well as a gift and surprise for them. Isn't it just the Lord to bring it full circle on exactly the same date, just one year later? Only God!

      I am sorry to hear of your loss. My heart and prayers go out to you and your family. I know only a loss like that is something the Lord can mend and heal. I trust you have experienced His great love and mercy!


  2. Robin, thank you for sharing. I am sorry about little Jonah. March 2, 2012 has significant meaning for our family. It is the day our first granddaughter, Charlotte Rose, was born. It was also our Abigail's 29th birthday.

    I am grateful that Praise's children have clean water as does the village. Bless you my friend and thank you for linking to Memorial Box Monday.

    1. Linny,

      I pray you and Dwight are blessed by this well as it is a true reflection of your unselfish, unending love for the orphan and serving them. You are a true example to the world and have witnessed and ministered to me in ways you will never understand. We love yo guys and pray for you all the time! xox

  3. Beautiful story! Bless you in your dedication and commitment to serving God and others...
