For the past three years I have had the privilege of training for the GO! St. Louis Half Marathon with Team Living Water. It has been a wonderful journey of growth for me both as a runner and as a follower of Christ. When I began this adventure back in 2010, I never could have imagined all the ways God would use this team to impact my life as well as the lives of those in need around the world. I will never cease to be amazed at the stories of lives that are being changed abroad as well as in our St. Louis community.
Here is a quick summary of the impact Living Water International has had over the last year:
Last year the WHO/UNICEF estimated the number of people without access to an improved water source dropped from 884 million to 783 million (that's 101 million fewer people who lack access to an improved water source)—thanks to new water points and programs. We're proud to claim 1,530 of those new wells and well rehabilitations in 2012, offered in Jesus' name. Track our progress at water.cc/ourwork.
I would love for you to be a part of this adventure with me. Please consider making a donation to help those in need of clean water.
I would also appreciate words of encouragement or the chance to discuss my experience with you. Passing the word along to others is always appreciated as well.
Thanks for your support.
Here is the story of Team Living Water St. Louis -
We are a crazy group of runners that is running the St. Louis Half Marathon in April on behalf of Living Water International. We had great years in 2010, 2011, and 2012, and are looking forward to an even better 2013.
We appreciate any donations you could make for our team. Your donation helps support Living Water International, a great organization that provides fresh water to families in impoverished areas of the world.
