The Nomad says: "I heard from a friend I met on the ship a little while ago. This friend has invented the new water treatment plant and sent me a note asking if I could assist him in placing one of these with a project somewhere. The units cost a couple of thousand pounds or more. The recipients would just need to pay the freight to their base in the developing world. Have written to two or three potential folk. Value your prayer for the right placement. Another kind and generous donation. He may well donate several. I know that he was thinking along those lines." Do you know of a worthy group that needs a water treatment plant?
