Progress towards our $375,000 goal:
Water Monitoring in Kenya
Eddie Anderson works with the Gabra people in northern Kenya. In this video he tells why it is so important for him to be able to monitor the health of his clean water system for a nearby town. Eddie uses clean water projects as a means of building credibility in these remote communities. This lays the groundwork for sharing the gospel through their evangelism and discipleship ministry.
In the house of the wise are stores of choice food and oil, but a foolish man devours all he has. (Proverbs 21:20 NIV)
During the month of October, SonSet Solutions took advantage of an opportunity to put wise stewardship into practice by having our fluorescent, incandescent, and halogen bulbs in both buildings converted to LED lamps which are more efficient, generate less heat, and yet provide the same amount of light. The new LED lights are expected to last at least 13 years.
The cost of the conversion was $18,384 in materials and labor. Anticipating a rebate of $5,737 from Indiana Michigan Power, this should leave us with a total project cost of $12,646. With the expected yearly energy savings of $7,609, this amount will be recovered in less than two years. And in a similar way — though in place for many years now — programmable thermostats have also helped in minimizing yearly heating costs.
Our old phone service was costing nearly $800 per month before the spring of 2016 when we changed from a conventional to a Voice over Internet Protocol (VOIP) phone system. We are now only spending about $100 per month for phone service, so our savings is approximately $8,000 per year.
God has provided for SonSet Solutions through the generosity of his people, and we continue to look for ways to be good stewards of those gifts.
