BENEFITING: Living Water International

EVENT DATE: Aug 06, 2016

THE STORY:

In August of 2015 I had the privilege to be a part of a Living Water International (LWI) well drilling team. We traveled to Rivas Nicaragua where I saw the amazing work that LWI does for communities of people who could not provide safe water for themselves. Providing the community well was life changing for those in Rivas, and somewhat to our surprise, it was also life changing for us on the team. We saw the love of Jesus at work during this week, both through our labors and through the kindness and hospitality of our hosts. It was a privilege to spend the week in their neighborhood. This year I will not be returning to Nicaragua but I still want to support the work that LWI does not only in Nicaragua, but around the world. In August of 2016 I will be running a Spartan Race. I will be seeking both sponsors and team mates who will run with me and help raise funds to provide a well for another community in Nicaragua. My overall goal is to raise $5500, the cost of a well in Central America. It would be great if I could find 10 team mates who will run with me and we could each raise $550. Living Water International uses the motto, “Endure, so they won’t have to.” I think this says it all. In my life I don't have to endure much if I choose not to. This summer I will choose to endure the preparation and the Spartan Race so that others will no longer have to endure the struggles of living without clean water. Water is a basic human need, but many people in the world have limited access to it. Many people around the world are forced to make a dangerous trip to gather water every day. This burden is most often placed on the shoulders of women and children consuming many hours of their day preventing them from earning money or getting an education. Often times the water collected is unclean, causing illness or death. 2.2 million People die from water related illness each year. Access to water effects every aspect of our lives, it has given me a job, an education, good health, and financial stability. How has water helped you? Together we can help people around the world receive the blessing of clean water. Please consider giving financially towards Living Water International on our behalf so that together we can provide water, for life, in Jesus' name! Learn more about this work at www.water.cc. Please, “Endure (with me), so they won’t have to.”
