This morning I woke up and had some extra time before I had to drive my daughter to school so I decided to spend that time with The Lord in prayer. This is what I prayed- "Lord, please help me to show love to someone today". He kept that prayer on my heart and mind all morning.
Allow me to back up a bit: a couple of weeks ago, I saw on a blog a story about water for Africa, it really impacted me and has stayed with me since then. I knew this was one way I could show love to someone today so I decided I was going to do this.
Would you please partner with me and The Water Project and help me raise the funds to bring clean drinking water to the dear people of Africa? I have set my goal at $550- let's see if we can do it!

Did you know nearly 1 billion people don't have safe water to drink?
Together, we can change that. Let's fund a new source of drinking water for those who suffer needlessly without it!
Our gifts will be used to construct or rehabilitate a water project, like a well or sand dam, in Africa. We'll see pictures, GPS coordinates, and updates as they come in from the actual water project we fund so we can celebrate the results along with the community we help.
The Water Project, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization unlocking human potential by providing clean, safe water to communities around the world who suffer needlessly without.
Working with local partners in countries like Kenya, Rwanda, Sierra Leone, South Sudan, and Uganda, we build long lasting water projects that are organized, owned and managed by the communities receiving them.
Together, with our partners we identify, implement, report on and follow up on every project. Then we share the whole story with you to inspire confidence in the work being done and the impact it has.
