Lifewater

We have more exciting news at our house. Ryan has been accepted to become a trainer for Lifewater!

Can you imagine not having clean water to drink, bathe or wash your clothes in? Or a working toilet? There are millions of people across our world that do not have this luxury. Unsafe water makes people and childern sick. 6,000 children die every day from the results of unclean water. 6,000 babies people! That makes my heart ache...

This is what Lifewater does..they train people to educate, implement and fix. Teams go to Africa, Asia and South America. They educate the people on the hazards of unclean water. What good is a well if the people contaminate it? I had never thought of that before. Then they teach them how to maintain the wells that will be or have been drilled for them.

This is an amazing program and I am so proud of Ryan for becoming involved. At our church, we are encouraged, no expected, to GO. GO show the people of these nations that God loves them and cares for them. GO spread the word of Jesus Christ. GO help people that need it. GO LIVE SACRIFICIALLY FOR THE MISSION. We are all capable of this, we just need to make the choice.

I hope my child has clean water....
