Help us get the word out


Our Fa'arau Well Drilling Team is the only water well business on the entire Island of Malaita. Every water well installation provides opportunity to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Jesus Christ said “...if anyone gives even a cup of cold water to one of these little ones who is my disciple, truly I tell you, that person will certainly not lose their reward”

Every well we dig in the natural is having a spiritual impact and is opening up wells of salvation to entire villages!

Jesus Christ “...But whoever drinks the water I give them will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give them will become in them a spring of water welling up to eternal life”

Share the Gospel of Jesus Christ

Jesus’ commandment was "Go Make Disciples of All Nations." Through connecting with villages we are able to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

How It Began

Birthing of a 24/7 House of Prayer in Fa'arau, a jungle village without electricity or running water.


March – Fa’HOP 24/7 Mission Base was established.

2010 – 2011

We were raising funds to supply everything needed for providing clean water for Fa’arau.


August 21 – September 5 we trained the men in Fa’arau in the art of well drilling. We handed over a well drilling machine to Fa’arau establishing the first well drilling business on the Island of Malaita. On September 5, 2012 the Fa’arau well water project was completed. They drank their first cup of clean water.


Fa’arau Well Drilling Team Leader Ricky Na’amo and Pastor Aaron Lagani, traveled with Rick Rupp to Goroka, Papua New Guinea to train a new well drilling team. We sent a second well drilling machine to David Gahare in Goroka. Our reproducible model is now working in the Solomon Islands and in Papua New Guinea! 5 water wells finished


Miraculous provision empowered us to send a 32 HP tractor with a well drilling rig, a cement block making machine, plus chain saws and milling equipment to Fa’arau. We harvested lumber and started making the cement blocks allowing progress constructing the Orphan/Visitor House. We installed 24 water wells.


The Fa’arau team became expert in well drilling, in concrete block making, and furthered developed their building skills. Our Fa’arau well drilling team produced 24 more functioning wells with PVC hand pumping systems. Fa’arau is now recognized as a source of expertise, and won the contract to make 20,000 concrete blocks to build local schools. Much progress was made on the Fa’arau Orphan/Visitor House which started


We received donations from Canada, Australia, and the United States to sponsor water wells for villages, schools, churches, and medical clinics who are desperate for clean drinking water. With two tractor rigs our Fa’arau well drilling teams installed 58 successful water wells on many different remote Islands! A 5 minute video was given as a free gift by an Australian Film team with a burden to help Clean Water 4 Life secure funds to provide clean drinking water wells. Top floor of Orphan/Visitor House was finished so we poured the 40


95 successful water wells were installed for villages, schools, churches, and clinics! December 8-10 2017 conducted a three day Grand Opening of the Orphan/Visitor House in Fa’arau. Click link for photo’s and report here On December 10 we included a ground breaking ceremony for construction of the new Church


80 water wells were installed for villages, schools, churches, and clinics!


March 2, Rick & Grace Rupp moved to live in Solomon Islands to give full strength to water well ministry!

God continues to release His strategies and resources to empower the poor and oppressed.

We have been able to:

  • Provided 95 water wells in 2017 for villages, schools, and clinics!
  • The Orphan/Visitor House is now completed and in use.
  • On December 10, 2017 public ground breaking ceremony for new 80 ft X 120 ft Church/House of Prayer
  • Established a bottled drinking water system inside the Orphan/Visitor House.

Church/House of Prayer new construction project, so far we have:

  • On December 10 we received a contribution of $2500.00 towards construction materials.
  • Started fund raising towards 10,000 bags of cement needed to pour the foundation and pour the concrete floor
  • Invited Church's, Business's, or House's of Prayer to send a team to help with the foundation and concrete work in 2018.
  • Maybe you have a 4 wheel drive truck? We would love to send the Fa'arau a good 4 wheel drive truck in 2018.
  • Contact me to arrange a fund raiser and/or a fall trip to pour concrete!

Our Team

God continues to release His strategies and resources to empower the poor and oppressed

Rick Rupp

Team Leader Rick Rupp has currently made 15 ministry trips to Fa'arau, Solomon Islands where God has birthed a 24/7 House of Prayer. On his first trip in 2008 God spoke to Rick. He said, "Rick if you help them build a bridge in the natural, I will build a bridge in the Spirit and birth a 24/7 House of Prayer right here in this jungle village of Fa'arau." Since that encounter, Rick has been obedient to God's calling.

Benjamin Troyer

Team member Benjamin Troyer (handy man), was born and raised in a rural farm and construction community. This has equipped him to train the unemployed villagers in Solomon Islands to make cement blocks, the milling of lumber, construction skills in the building of the Orphan House, tractor maintenance, and Bible teaching. We met at the International House Of Prayer Kansas City where we both served on the Night Watch (midnight - 6am) as full time Prayer Missionaries.

Dr Grace Lea Kim

On July 29, 2017 Dr Grace Lea Kim and Rick Rupp were married! Dr Grace traveled with Rick and the "Free for the Poor" medical clinics were restarted in December of 2017. This is such a huge answer to prayer! If you are a Doctor please contact me (Rick Rupp) about joining our short term medical trips. Most medical trips are a 2 week commitment.

"The team at IHOPKC strongly support the work God is doing in the Solomon Islands. Our heart is to see nations impacted through works of justice from a place of seeking God through prayer."
