Let's Walk 4 Water !

We often hear the phrase “1st world problems”. We say this jokingly when someone is whining and complaining about a momentary lack of a modern 1st world convenience. Imagine if any one of us, you or me, truly had a third world problem. Could we handle it? Imagine walking two miles to a putrid water source and then having to haul a six gallon jug full of that water back another two miles to your home. With this water, you wash your laundry, your body, you cook with it, and you drink this water. Only to turn around and do this all over again the next day.

Although we have treasures waiting in heaven, water is life of earth. Without it our life ceases to exist. Join us for this momentous act of charity raising funds to build a clean water well for those who walk this walk every day of their lives. Come out and walk with us in solidarity for the people of Haiti who are in desperate need of clean fresh water. We will walk two miles one way and two miles back while sharing the responsibility of carrying six gallons of water as a symbol of what our fellow men and women go through in Haiti.

Our goal for our 1st annual Walk 4 Water event hosted by Pleasant View Church of Christ, in Pleasanton Ca. is $7,500, the cost to bring one well to a village of people who desperately are in need of a clean water source . If we can surpass this goal that would be amazing! Any extra funds raised go towards building more or repairing current wells.

Join us in making a difference and changing lives one gallon and one step at a time!

Our goal for our 1st Walk4Water event hosted by Briensburg Church of Christ, in Marshall County, Kentucky is $7,500-- the cost to bring one well to a village of people who desperately are in need of a clean water source . If we can surpass this goal that would be amazing! Any extra funds raised go towards building more or repairing current wells.

“Please, give me a little water to drink, for I am thirsty.”  Judges 4:19.       It begins with water...many of us in the United States take such a simple resource as water for granted until a natural disaster or tragic event strikes. Imagine if you had to walk an average of 4 miles to get that water that was contaminated and killing your family at an alarming rate. This is a daily routine for many women and children around the world today.

Now imagine how life-changing it could be for these people to have access to clean water near their homes and businesses. Not only would it eliminate sickness resulting from dirty water, but it would free up much of their time to engage in other prosperous activities, like attending school and church.  Briensburg congregation wants to be part of the solution to generate clean water for those in need. Won’t you help as well?

”. . . I was thirsty and you gave me drink: I was a stranger and ye took me in:”  Matthew 25:35.  Please join us as a community to Walk4Water, so “they don’t have to!” Registration starts at 9:00am and the walk will begin at 9:30 am, September 7, 2019. We will use the walking trail over Ky Dam—registration starting at the pavilion located by the old beach near Ky. Dam Village Inn Boat Ramp/Old Beach parking. 

At Briensburg church of Christ with our partner Healing Hands International from Nashville, we believe no one should live without love or water! Much like the Samaritan woman in John 4, when these people come to draw clean drinking water, they will also have the opportunity to encounter “the living water.” As always, God does the healing, but He is using your hands (and feet) to do it. Let us not be weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap, if we faint not. Galatians 6:9

When clean water is accessible, not only is disease reduced, but children are able to return to school and parents are able to focus on providing for their families. This is why we say, “It all begins with water.” And that water begins with you!

Please, mark your calendars and join us in making a difference and changing lives one step at a time!  We walk so they don't have to. . .

We are excited to host our 8th annual Leitchfield Walk4Water on September 7. For the past seven years we have seen God bless this funding for the providing of thirteen clean water wells in the countries of India, Ethiopia, Ghana, and Haiti. Local churches and businesses have partnered with us in this service for the less fortunate, as well as individuals from here in Grayson County and thirteen states.

We thank God for this opportunity to join Him in the intersecting of heaven to earth, and would love to have you join us.

* This event is private and is restricted for the students only. *

Keeping a 4th year tradition going strong, the class of 2026 will literally walk for water while raising awareness and money to repair existing wells.  By raising $3500, we will be able to repair a well in Zimbabwe and 2 wells in Haiti!   In the past 3 years, we have been able to raise enough money to dig 3 new wells, one in Haiti, Zimbabwe, and Ethiopia.  All the river valley civilizations we study in 6th grade Individuals and Societies classes thrived and survived due to water.  Our summer reading book is A Long Walk to Water by Linda Sue Park, so students are aware of the dire need of fresh water for all and are happy to get behind this need as our Service as Action.

On September 14th the churches of Christ in Central KY are coming together for our 3rd annual Walk 4 Water. It is so easy to take something like clean drinking water for granted because all we have to do is turn on a faucet and we have a seemingly endless supply of it. We are excited to continue this incredible event so that we can help others throughout the world have the same easy access to clean water as we do. If you are from the Central KY area we would like to encourage you to join us as we raise money to help build a well in an area where clean water is scarce. Together, we can make a difference in this world!

Please join us for the sixth annual Bowling Green area Walk4Water. We walk four miles, the average distance women and children walk for water in developing countries. The walk raises awareness and funds to drill and repair clean water wells in Haiti.

Walk4Water was brought to the Bowling Green, KY area by the late Grant Cline, who was appalled that thousands of people die daily due to lack of access to clean drinking water.   His dream was for the people of Bowling Green and the surrounding counties to bring wells to villages in Haiti. We have raised over $195,000 in our previous five walks.

We walk for the Haitian people, in Grant’s memory, to the glory of God.  “We walk, so they don’t have to.”

The walk is hosted for the sixth year by Greenwood Park Church of Christ.

The West Chicago Church of Christ is hosting our first Walk4Water on Saturday, October 12. Our goal is to raise $7500, the cost for sponsoring the drilling of one well in the mountains of Haiti. Four miles – two mile walk to a water source, then two miles back to your home – the average walk for those living in other countries. Quite a difference from a four foot walk to our water faucet. Let’s share our blessing of clean, convenient water with those who need it so desperately. Join us as we walk through the village of West Chicago from our church building to the West Chicago fire station located on Fremont Street. After a short visit with our local fire fighters and fill our water containers, we will head back to the church building and enjoy a hot dog roast and s-mores!

Have you ever been sitting on the couch, wishing you had a glass of water, but at the same time thought, “Nah, I don’t want to walk to the kitchen”? You’re not alone, we’re all guilty of doing that at least a couple of times in our lives, but let me ask you, how far is that actual walk to the kitchen? Twenty, maybe 30 feet? Well, what if your walk was four, maybe five miles...at the least. Guess what, for some people not even too far from us...it is. You can help make that walk just a little shorter though! Come join us at Maysville Church of Christ on October 19 and lets take part in making someone’s #Walk4Water just a little bit shorter by raising funds to help a third-world community in need have a water well drilled so that water can be made more easily accessible, and maybe even spread some love and the good Word, as well. We look forward to walking with you!
