Michael Challenges Grace Brethren Church

Michael C.

On March 1st of this year, Michael C. challenged his church, Leamersville Grace Brethren Church in Leamerville, PA, to raise $3,500 to build a well in Kenya.  We got this great update just a couple days ago,

“Good news as of 6/10/09 he has raised $3,800!  We plan to keep it going to see how much we can raise.  Other good news our vacation bible school for their mission project decided to give the money to Michael’s water project.  The boys and girls at bible school raised $613.52 in one week.  So far he has raised a total of $4,400. Isn’t it amazing what God can do!  I’m sending along pictures of Michael, his display and of bible school.”

That is simply incredible.  It is amazing what God will do with one person’s passion to “give a cup of cold water in my name.”  We know this hard work will do a great good.  Way to go Michael!!

Murrietta Valley HS on The Road to Change


Students at Murrietta Valley High School get on the “Road to Change”

I would like to say a special thanks to Mrs. Saylor and her senior class at Murrieta Valley High School for a very generous donation to the Road to Change project. This is a great group of young people who are making a very positive difference in the lives of those who are not be able to help themselves. Below is an e-mail I had received from Peter Chasse with The Water Project, who had received it directly from one of their students

A Drop of Water, An Ocean of Hope


UPDATE 9/21/2009 – See the wells being funded:  Ikobero School Well & Busyubi School Well

Students from Mayo High School, led by the International Relations Association absolutely stunned our team with their incredible fundraiser this past month!

We were thrilled to see the dedication and passion of these students in their work, both through the video they made and of course the more than 2 wells they funded!

Time and time again, we read letters from schools, just like Mayo High School, that set a goal and beat it…big time.  That’s because the story of water is easy to grasp.  When people understand the issues and that even one high school can dramatically impact an entire community (or two!) it’s easy to get behind it with support!

Way to go Mayo!!
