In Kurt’s eyes, we are all human, all children of God, and should not be divided by race, oceans, or any other means.
Walking for Wells was born of a charitable heart when a little over two years ago Kim and Kurt began sponsoring a little girl (Bithi Karmaker) who lives in Bangladesh. Recently, they learned that Bithi’s family did not have access to a water well and decided that they would help change that. In villages like Bithi’s, the women and children spend their days fetching water instead of going to school or doing other types of work that could be productive financially or otherwise for the family. Having a consistent supply of water will change things for them socially and economically.
It’s interesting that people’s paths cross at just the right time. Call it a God Thing, Fate, Happen Chance. Call it what you want. We meet the people we need to meet along life’s way.
Shortly after committing to the 2020 well mission, Kim and Kurt joined the Mid Bay Bridge Rotary Club. They were looking into ways to raise the capital to install Bithi’s well when Reverend Obi (a guest) showed up at one of the meetings. To their surprise, Obi had thirty years’ experience install- ing wells in Africa! Their chance meeting led to an introduction to Tyler Fuller, the pastor in charge of Missions work at Crosspoint Church in Niceville. Crosspoint has provided some of the funding for Reverend Obi’s missions in the past and has agreed to get involved once again. During a lengthy discussion with Obi, Tyler, and two other fellow Rotarians, Kurt volunteered to go to Africa in October to assist Reverend Obi. And so, his mission work begins as a precursor to Kurt’s walking the Appellation Trail in 2020.
