Uranium has been discovered at Auggi Lakes (where Hungku is). Trans-migrants are coming in by the thousands. Thus along with the gold and copper Moses' land is more saleable. Will the tribe resist the temptation to sell to mining companies?

The Water Project has slowed down due to lack of funds, but Moses has opened a bank savings account and is sending us the deposit slips. This is encouraging. Learning about money is another bridge crossed. Your continued support is requested and the rate of exchange is very favorable right now. The 501C3 is still in place. The coastal part of the tribe did sell their land and now work upon their own land as slaves. Moses' tribe is well aware of this example. I'll hope to return in March. More good news. We now have a lawyer volunteering her time.
