Honduras: Clean Water Well/Evangelism
As the Lord started to open up our eyes to the clean water crisis around the world and just how far reaching it is effecting people’s physical, social, emotional, and spiritual lives, we knew that He wanted us to intervene with His justice and mercy. Therefore, each year, as a church, we raise money to provide a well for a village that lacks access to clean water around the world through the ministries of Living Water and Burkina Faso Streams!
During the first two years of our partnership with Living Water, in order to raise the money needed to provide a well, we participated in a month long church-wide water fast where we drank only water. The purpose of this was for us to give the money we would have spent on other beverages during the fast to put towards building a clean water well. God enabled us to raise up enough money during these first two years to provide a well for three different villages, two in Southern India and one in Honduras.
In 2014, in order to raise money for a well, we put together a fun-run 5k called, “The Well Done Run” knowing that if we got enough participants that the well would be done! The Lord graciously raised up enough money to provide for another clean water well in Honduras!
Starting in 2014, we have had the joy of getting to send short-term mission teams with Living Water to build the well, teach those living in the village good hygiene practices, love on the people living in the village, and share Christ with those living in the village.
In 2016, we began to also partner with one of our long-term missionaries, Ashli Roussel and the work that she is doing in Burkina Faso. Therefore, we now send teams with Living Water on an every other year basis to Honduras (every odd Spring), and a team to Burkina Faso every even Spring.
