|Raised So Far:||$2,295|
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. . .
