January 2016 Special Mission Project
Water 4 Life Ministry Sawyer Water Filter for Sale only $ 50
What happens if there isn’t safe and clean drinking water? Just a few stats:
- 1.8 million children die every year from water borne diseases and poor sanitation – equal to about 4,000 child deaths daily(UNDP)
- Almost 1 Billion people in the world lack access to safe drinking water, that’s one out of every eight of us (WHO/UNICEF).
- Water related diseases caused by unsafe drinking water and inadequate sanitation remain humanity’s most serious public health threat causing 80% of sickness in developing countries. (WHO)
- Safe, clean drinking water changes everything! It breaks the cycle of poverty and it changes lives. It gives hope where there wasn’t any!
This month your Mission Team has chosen Clean Water Ministry as the special mission project. We want to save lives, by providing safe drinking water to impoverished people around the world. You can find out more about this mission at water4lifeministry.org.
Mark 9:41…For whoever shall give you a cup of water to drink in my name, because you belong to Christ, truly I say to you, he shall not lose his reward.
You can join this mission by purchasing a water filter, combine dollars with friends to purchase a water filter for $50, tell others about this mission project, and always pray, we can make a difference is some one’s life. There is no reason any child should suffer and die in the world from lack of safe, clean drinking water. Please join us to save the little forgotten ones in the world.
