Water. How Hard Would You Work For It?

Fall 2018 Lower Village Water

If you lived in a poor village and did not have access to clean water, what would you do?  Our organization does many humanitarian projects in the name of Jesus, with no strings attached.  We do not try and shove religion down peoples throats or proselytize them.  We just show love and compassion.  Love and compassion is a powerful thing, so powerful, it can motivate a village.

The lower half of the village had to walk a long way to get fresh water from our well, or they simply went to the nasty water in the river.  We had been blessed with a little money from some churches that David Varner, the Founder spoke at in Rhode Island and New York recently.  This money was used to do some repairs and upgrades to the communities well.  First, a second storage tank was installed for a total of 1320 Gallons of water storage.  Secondly, two more batteries were added to the system to allow for longer periods without sun during the rainy season.  Two more sinks were installed, and a water line was run to the lower half of the village.

David Varner made the announcement that we were going to be adding an additional sink and shower area in the lower half of the village and that we needed a ditch dug for the pipe.  During the very short time we left for supplies, 20 to 30 men, women, and children, dug a 500 foot trench to where we needed.  As fast as we were laying and gluing the pipes, the villagers were right behind us closing the trench back up.  There was even a little 5 year old girl with a plastic toy shovel doing her part.

Folks, we are so blessed here in the United States that we take our water in our comfortable homes for granted.  So many folks do not have that advantage.  We are helping whenever we can, with whatever resources we have available to us.  Would you consider making a donation today?  Great or small, everything helps us to make a difference.  Thank you!
