BENEFITING: Living Water International
EVENT DATE: May 27, 2013
Join Team Living Water at the 2013 BolderBoulder and give 'Water- for life- in Jesus' name'.
783 million people around the world lack access to safe water - and Colorado is doing something about it! Partnering with Living Water International, 783 million people without access to safe water is actually 783 million chances to reveal the glory of God. We will [endure] for the thirsty in this year's Bolder Boulder to [end] the water crisis for many and share the Good news of Jesus Christ!
Today, half the world's hospital beds are occupied by someone suffering from a water-related disease that could be easily prevented. 2.6 billion people are without adequate sanitation. The burden of gathering dirty water often falls on the women and children of a community; women can spend up to 20 HOURS per week collecting water, carrying heavy water containers up to 7 miles in the dry season. This is our chance to bear that burden as a local community and [end] the water crisis for communities globally.
No single factor transforms communities more than clean water. Every $1 dollar invested in water and sanitation generates at least $4 dollars of return in saved time, increased productivity, and reduced healthcare costs.
Living Water International exists to demonstrate the love of God by helping communities acquire desperately needed clean water, and to experience the “Living water”—the gospel of Jesus Christ—which alone satisfies our deepest thirst. Over the last 2 decades, Living Water has completed over 12,000 water projects throughout 27 countries within Africa, India & Central America.
We are compelled by love to live, work, speak and [ENDURE] for the thirsty. 783 million people around the world are thirsty—and we have 783 million chances to reveal the glory of God!
Our Goal is that WE will [endure] for the thirsty and raise $500 each. Alongside your local community - 100 people of Colorado - we believe together we can raise $50,000 for the thirsty this year! Sign up to [endure] for the thirsty and [end] their water crisis by joining this year's Bolder Boulder with Team Living Water!
