Day 2: Water, water, everywhere, but not a drop to drink

I cried at this video. Despite the upbeat music, I sat and watched in horror as the people in Africa carefully scooped and SAVED each drop of the filthy, muddy, bug-infested water that they had traveld HOURS to get. My mind instantly thought, "How can I help these people?" and then the video showed Africans drilling for wells. Progress needs sustainability.

I know that this study is going to shrink God's world for me, and that already my heart aches for those in these impoverished areas. I just ask that you consider helping financially in some way some cause that God lays on your heart through this study. A share of a deep well is $100--I'm willing to give up our eating out money for that--consider ways that you can sacrifice and do what God expects of you. I'm so thankful that He spared me from that life, but I pray that He doesn't allow me to forget about those that are living it everyday.

  1. I have been praying about a well too. Let's pray, pray, pray and see what happens. I am asking God for a whole well this Spring. I also can't shake the importance of water or my family's inability to go without if for a day. Good word, Sister.
