Asilong - Transformation in Progress

This movie was filmed in late 2017, about 9 years after the drilling of a water well sparked a major transformation in the community of Asilong. Jacob's Well Church attended the dedication of that first well, and decided to drill 10 more wells in the area over the next two years. In 2009, Julius Sawe, a recent college graduate from Matunda, Kenya visited Asilong for the first time. He came with Pastor Edward Simiyu from Nairobi and two Americans, Andy DuPont and Brad Harrison, to see how the new water wells were affecting the community. Julius was very impacted by what he saw, and later that year he answered God's call to return to Asilong as a missionary.

In this movie you are witnessing the current level of transformation that has occurred. There are few flashback picture for comparison, and as the transformation continues, the community is taking ownership of what God is providing. We pray for the day when Asilong's progress becomes self-sustaining as God empowers this community with knowledge, skills, leadership and vision.
