Today on Day 3, I rode from Dubois, WY, to Jeffrey City, WY, with Strava recording 130.76 miles. The weather varied from sunny and hot to a mild rain (which was quite refreshing) to overcast and quite comfortable.
Today was another wonderful day, with a bit of a shorter ride today of 100.26 miles according to Strava. The weather was sunny and warm, with a low of 63° this morning and a high in the upper 80’s.
Design Outreach’s summer internship program is in full swing. Qinan Zhou and Nick Carlson, DO’s new interns, are working closely with Principal Engineer Naja Robinson and Project Engineer Daniel Wang on several of our current projects, including building the test stand for a fourth-generation gearbox used in LifePump and designing the handle for autoLifePump, to gain some real-world experience in engineering.
Design Outreach leaders recently returned from doing field work in Malawi and Zambia where they conducted training, installed LifePumps and LifePumpLinks, met with partners and governmental officials and made plans for future impact.

In Malawi, 1 out of every 9 people don’t have access to safe and reliable water. That’s over 2 million people. Thanks to your generosity, the community of Thamanda School in the Nkhata Bay district are now enjoying the benefits of safe and reliable water.
Design Outreach is launching its second annual Golden Cup event that starts June 21st and goes through July 3rd.
Our last few hours in Malawi are always bittersweet, missing our families back home but also leaving our family in Malawi. Beatrice often calls Malawi my second home, and I think she’s right. I look forward to returning to Ohio every time, but I’m always anticipating my next visit to Malawi. Traveling back to Ohio is not an easy journey, especially with COVID restrictions.
Today we attended a new church in search of a place that Hugo and Bre can call their church home when they move here in July. This time we visited a church on the African Bible College (ABC) Campus. ABC hosts a radio ministry, seminary, and hospital in Lilongwe. In fact, our longtime partner SonSet Solutions helped provide their Christian radio station.
Today we woke up, and after our usual morning devotions, we headed into the office for the start of the day’s meetings. On the way, we saw a group of kids playing football (aka soccer in the US), and we wanted to get some video footage for a future video.
