Global Television presenting "Faithful", the cow who brought in the water to our Home of Angels.

We wanted to share with you the Global TV newscast that was seen on August 9th, 2011.

 This broadcast was a special edition to specifically show everyone how one cow could contribute in such a huge way.  Faithful the cow was sold by Laury and Tom DeGroot solely to supply the water for our Home of Angels.  They put in submersible pumps to accomodate both homes, latrines, tanks, gardens and septic tanks.  This is the largest donation we have had and we want to share this will all of you.  Thank you so much Tom and Laury, we will never forget this and are so grateful to you both.


  1. Oh, I had no idea the well would cost that much OR that a cow could be worth that much!!
    I'm SO happy for all those babies and SO thankful for you, Barb, Edwin and Laury!!
    Thankful to God for His provision and blessings.
    I hope anyone watching the video or reading the blog will send $ and be a part of this incredible
    life-giving project!
