A Meaningful Anniversary
Posted by Alisa Van Dyke on July 19, 2012

How many times have you been invited to a 50th anniversary party where the invitation said, "Please, no gifts"? This is typical, because most people who have enjoyed 50 years together do not need anything physical, but simply want to enjoy the blessing of being together with family and friends.

 

As Roy and Clara Shannon began planning their 50th anniverary celebration with their children, they knew they did not want gifts, but the thought kept coming to them that maybe they could do somthing to make an impact on this special occassion. So, as long-term supporters of Healing Hands, it seemed like a natural fit to use this party as an opportunity to bring clean water to those in need.

 

The Shannon's goal was to raise enough for one well, but they knew that any amount would be a blessing, no matter how large or small.

 

The Shannons were moved and amazed when their friends and family responded to the call and gave enough to provide TWO wells - one for the nation of Haiti and one for our new drilling program in South Sudan.

 

Roy and Clara praise God and thank their friends and family for this expression of their love!
