Family in Walk4Water Shirts

Walking for a Cause…

I want you to know that I do not in any way benefit monetarily from your donation. ALL MONEY RAISED GOES TO BUILD WELLS AND HELP THOSE IN NEED.

I don’t know about you but I tend to take a lot of life for granted. We just go to the faucet and turn a knob and wham! Out comes some fresh clean water to drink. For many people around the world—especially those in third world countries it just isn’t that easy.

There are some people that have to walk an average of 4 miles to get water. And the water that they get is often dirty and full of germs and diseases that make them sick.

For the past several years our family has been given a great opportunity. Our church has been a part of Healing Hands International’s Walk 4 Water program for the last 10 years.

The program raises money to build water wells in countries where access to clean water is very difficult. The wells cost about $7,500 to build. So every year we as a congregation try to raise at least that much. Any money that is raised above that will be used to purchase portable water filters that will be given out to people as well.

So, on the first Saturday of May, we all gather together at a local park and Walk 4 Water. We walk about four miles and then have a good time of fellowship together.  It’s something that our family looks forward to every year.

This year I am asking you to consider donating to our cause. I want you know that it’s not the amount that matters. Every little bit helps, and who knows? Your small amount might just be the difference between $7,499 and $7,500.

I want you know that to these people this well is HUGE. It’s life giving. As the well is being drilled the people are being taught about God and His love for them. Everyone gets excited and tries to help in any way that they can.

When I see the joy in these people’s faces when the drillers finally reach clean water and it’s being pumped and poured from the well I am reminded of just how good we have it here in the United States of America and just how much we take for granted; how blind we can be to God’s blessings in our lives.

I want you to know that I do not in any way benefit monetarily from your donation. ALL MONEY RAISED GOES TO BUILD WELLS AND HELP THOSE IN NEED.

Thank you SO much for your consideration and donation to this cause.

Until next time,
