October Walk4Water
Posted by Ashley Reeves on October 30, 2013

October was a whirlwind of a month for Healing Hands International: we were blessed over and over with the opportunity to partner with different groups around the country for Walk4Water - we attended FIVE Walk4Water events from all the way up in Lincoln Park, MI to Austin, TX to Durant, OK, to Americus, GA and finally to Leitchfield, KY!  

We want to thank everyone from Lincoln Park Church of Christ, Brentwood Oaks Church of Christ, Clinton Street Church of Christ, and the campus ministry teams on both the campus of Southeastern State University in Durant, OK and Southwestern State University in Americus, GA. We could never have done this without you!

We’ve met incredible people along the way, people who know what it means to truly be the hands and feet of Jesus, people who have a passion for meeting the needs of our neighbors around the world, and people who have a deep love for sharing Jesus and saving souls through the gift of clean water. Our lives have been changed because of the people we have met this month – it’s been a humbling experience. All in all over the last month we have met over 550 people and have raised an amzing amount of money to fund clean water wells around the world!!!

One of our very favorite things about Walk4Water is the diversity in the ages of people there – we get so excited when we see children walking and carrying the bucket of water, but we also love when we see the older generations walking. Some have even participated while in their wheelchairs! Walk4Water truly does bring us altogether for an important cause. We hope that if you’re reading this that it reminds you that it doesn’t matter how old you are, where you’re from or what you’re doing with your life, it is never too late or too early to get involved and change someone’s life. 

If you, your church, or organization is interested in hosting a Walk4Water in your community, contact Lara Jenkins at ljenkins@hhi.org to get started today! 

Together we can change lives and save souls.
