Having just finished our chapel service, the last thing I expected was to be taken to see the murky side of the Bible School. There before us was a broken lid to the sewerage pit with seething, dark liquid oozing everywhere!! After a lot of discussion and holding of noses we worked out a plan of action with the faithful few remaining to try to clear the blockage and then find a way to repair the area. A lucky strike on the pipe allowed a huge gush of the fluid to escape and flow into a ditch previously used for sawing wood, saving it from flowing into the dry river bed further on. Many bucketsful later we had removed the majority of the grime and started the repair work. New lids are now hardening up to cover the repaired pit and the crisis has eased.
