THE POTGIETERS

Lowe was born in Eidoret, Kenya, the area that was pioneered and
developed by his grandparents in the early 1900s. He was educated at
the Prince of

Wales School, Nairobi

and

was at one

time associated

with the Pokot people whilst working for the Kenya Government. Lowe
and Marion met in Eidoret where Marion was seconded as a teacher by
the

British

Government.

Marion

was

born

in

North

Wales

and

educated

Edge Hill Training College, England. She has twenty years teaching
experience encompassing all ages and all cultures. Josie, their
daughter was born in Mombasa, a third generation Kenyan.

After leaving Kenya in 1967 they lived for fifteen years in Rhodesia
where they were involved towards the end in commercial fishing on Lake
Kariba. During this time Lowe flew on operational duties and gained
extensive experience as a bush pilot. Marion helped run the business
and was involved in accounting, typing and general management.
/7/

Lowe and Marion felt drawn to becoming involved in the East Africa

/ Christian Mission with Dick and Jane Hamilton. They will help

establish the aviation program in conjunction with threW'0T~l~d'""Vu-s4-o-n

water drilling operation. They both speak the native language Swahili. ^

AVIATION PROGRAM

1The expansion of the water drilling operations in Kenya is extending


efforts further afield into more remote and impenetrable areas. The
necessity of emergency aerial communications has become paramount as

' roads consist of nothing more than bush tracks and floods cut off

areas for days and sometimes weeks at a time. It is essential that

I jWork teams be resupplied with food, medical needs and spare parts
which can be air dropped. In this area Lowe and Marion will act as a

^^SiLPPcirt group to organize and fly in the necessary supplies for the
hands-on

teams.

WATER OF LIFE

The Gift of Wells and the Gospel

The difference between

starvation and enough food


disease and health

despair and hope...


is water.
ARRICA
CHR I ST I A!SI
M I SS I ON

LOUIE; Sc MARION

ROTO I ETER

Along the Kenya-Uganda border lies an arid strip of


isolated scrub brush known as Kara Pokot. It's 20,000
inhabitants are the primiti^/e Pokot people. Famed as
warriors, these nomads roam the hills and valleys in
search of water and grazing For their cows,
LUhen the
need arises fco replenish the herds, raids are made

against neighboring tribes in warfare that has gone on


for centuries.

In the early 1970's the Pokot were untouched by civil


ization. Pflany of them had never seen a white and most

had never heard the name of Jesus Christ, when Dick


and Jane Hamilton arrived on the scene in 1976.

One of the biggest needs the people had was for water.

There were about 30 old wells that had been put in by


the British but only a few were still pumping. Dick
found that by repairing the pumps, he was welcomed in

the villages as a friend. The message of the "Living


Water" of Jesus could be shared by providing the
physical water to meet the needs of the Pokot people
and their cattle.

GOD HAD OPENED A DOOR!

Two other needs were for medical help and schools. By


ministering to these physical needs, Christ's love was

shown in a practical way and the people responded.


Then in 19B0 a severe famine swept Africa and the
Pokot became victims of starvation and the epidemics
that follow.

The little mission at Kiwawa,

with the

help of World Vision began a feeding program that pro


vided for over 2,000 people a day in a "soup kitchen"
operation. After the famine, a program was begun
to
distribute tools and seeds to the people.
With their
cattle gone and their future dim, they came desperately
to receive the help. The first year six ton of seed
was distributed, the rains were not good and the crops
were sparce.

The following year

greater numbers,
the rains came
harvested. The
had been planted

the people

came in .

over 12 ton of seed was passed out, ''


in abundance and a bumper crop was
maize seed was not the only seed that
and borne fruit. The gospel seed was

also producing. Six new churches and over 400 baptized


believers, average attendance of over
meeting

on Sundays

in areas around

PRAISE GOD WHO GIVES THE IIMCREASEI

1,000 people

Kiwawa

station.

The success

of

the water projects has prompted World

Vision to approach the

Hamiltons

to expand the water

ministry to reach more people with water FOR life and


The Water OF Life.

Every place there is a pumping well, becomes a center


of community life.
People bring their cattle to the
water, men sit under the shade trees, women come
daily For their Family's supply oF water, wash their
children, visit and share their lives before starting
home again.
What a natural place For the gospel to
be shared with people. An evangelist at these centers

will touch almost every life From the surrounding area.


It has worked beautifully in Kara Pokot.
The water
centers become preaching points, which become churches,

which become centers of Christian witness and .activity.


WATER AMD THE GOSPEL!

PRECIOUS GIFTS FOR THE PEOPLE OF AFRICA

The vision is For^0 new wells to be drilled in other


arid, needy areas.
Each area becoming another center
with the gospel message Flowing Freely along with the
water.
A clinic, school and church will be built at
each center.

We invite you to share in this ministry. To share


those precious gifts that we take so much For granted.
To share so that others less Fortunate can have a bet

ter life and through the physical ministries can also


learn about the Lord's love For them.

"I will provide . . .


SPRINGS IN THE DESERT
AND

STREAMS IN THE WASTELAND

To give drink to ra y people . . .


THAT THEY MAY PROCLAIM MY PRAISE."
Isa 43:20
