Data Dashboard – We are building a new user interface which will connect SonSetLink™ users with their data in more interactive ways.

Our user interface will make tracking their vehicles easy for them. Pray for wisdom as our team continues development.

These units will be installed around the world and represent a push by Water Mission to get SonSetLink units onto every project they have installed since January 2017.

Crown FM (Nigeria) – Despite difficulties such as interference from other stations and lightning damage, God has used the broadcasts from two locations of Crown FM in Nigeria. We praise the Lord for over 100 people who have come to faith in Christ at their newest location in the past year. Please pray for the growth of these new believers as well as for the many others who come to know Christ as a result of our many partner ministries.
