In the month of June 2016, Carol Deel began to communicate with Pastor Jerry Dadi of the Pneuma Glorious Assembly in Alionahi, Nigeria. Pastor Dadi had been working with five villages there in Nigeria and knew of the need for fresh water. There were water-born diseases in the villages such as dysentery and people, including children were dying. Pastor Dadi also indicated that if we were able to bring water to the village then the people would be more apt to accept Jesus Christ.
