Drilling update #5
We were able to get a hammer drill bit from another mission in Port late last night. So the guys were anxious to get going this morning at daybreak. So far so good. They are down about 80' now - they were in rock since 57', and this hammer drill is speeding the process up majorly. They're able to move through the rock at the rate of 1 foot/3 minutes - instead of an inch in 5 minutes like yesterday! They are going to have to bring another compressor up from town, because the one they are using isn't quite doing the job, but it's not hindering the drilling either. Thank you for praying!
