The God who formed me in my mothers womb, has blessed me with clean water for my entire life. That same God also declares that there is no greater love than to lay down your life for someone else-John 15:13 He has blessed me that I may bless others.
I am part of a group that is is called 4others. A bunch of young Christ-followers seeking to live their lives for others. Whether that be distributing perishables in Huron, CA to a drought stricken community, or gleaning a few tons of celery for use in California food banks. Soon 4others will be returning to Death Valley National Park, for the second time, to raise awareness about the struggle for clean drinkable water that Africans face every day.
On June 29, this year(2010) we will be walking 15 miles in the lowest point of the western hemisphere, carrying a container of water symbolizing the the struggle for clean water that so many face daily. We are walking so they don't have to. The African Water Project, which is a student founded ministry, seeks to raise awareness and funds to build and repair clean water wells across Africa, and help prevent and rid Africa of all its preventable water-born illnesses.
Truthfully, I don' like money, never have, and never will. I think its silly. I don't like spending it, worrying about it, or asking for it. I find it all together burdensome. I guess I ran out of room. The rest is in the "Vote for me" section.
