Well, it is the rainy season in Bolivia. The Agua Yaku team spends more time trying to get out of mud holes (or pull other people out) than we would wish for, but we are still getting out there and drilliing wells where clean water is needed.
I just finished our new website section called “How We Work,” where I explain in detail the philosophy behind the “how” and “why” of what Agua Yaku does in Bolivia. I thought I would repost it here so that our blog readers could have the first look at this document. Thank you so much for […]

At the end of July, Agua Yaku teamed up with five volunteers from ABLE (Assisted Better Living Everywhere), a U.S. based service organization, to distribute water filters in Guarani communities along the Pilcomayo river in Tarija. We worked closely with local pastors and missionaries who intimately know the communities and their needs. We were able […]
Hello again from the jungle metropolis of Santa Cruz, Bolivia! We have had a busy spring with teams and volunteers visiting and plenty of activity here in Santa Cruz. Our family will be staying in Bolivia this summer, hosting several teams that will be focused both on ministry here in the city and in our […]
We are still on target to bring to market, and to our ministry, a new water filter called AquaSiv. Manufactured by my partner in China, the AquaSiv filter will work similarly to the Sawyer filter that we have been using for several years now. It will remove 100% of bacteria, parasites, and other disease causing […]
