REAT CAMP THIS WEEK ... the BIGGEST yet!
Over 80 people participated in our Camp this year, many, many youth and a great staff! From learning about pond and forest life to the electromagnetic spectrum to the constellations.... Lea dership Training through Games, Float-a-Boat, hiking, tie-dying their own shirts,... and, of course, s'mores at the campfire... the youth had very full days throughout Camp learning about the gift of a beautiful Creation God has given.
The older youth were great mentors to the younger ones and demonstrated caring hearts for them all. This is all part of the leadership training and character building Fields of Grace hopes will be instilled through activities such as these at Camp.
Thank you to all the staff who helped teach, cook, lead, share, and make the Camp such a great success.
LAST DAY at WATER MISSIONS
As we said "good-bye" to our new friends at Water Missions International, we were humbled and joyful at the same time for all that they are doing and all that we had learned and had been able to do to help them this week. Jay, Mac, Frank, Bill, Ed, and others who work and volunteer in the warehouse, who helped teach us how to assemble parts of water systems, the founders, George III and Molly Greene, and all those on staff in the office, Kevin, Michelle, Beth, Rodgers, George IV, Nicole, Megan, David, to name a few, who made us realize how deeply important it was to pray as we put things together... pray for those who will be receiving these water systems, pray that they arrive safely where they are shipped, pray for each life the pure water will save and enrich.... pray without ceasing... It wasn't just about putting together parts.... it was... and is... about bringing pure water and the Living Water to people in desperate need around the world. We are so thankful that we were able to be a part of this wonderful mission and ministry this week.
VOLUNTEERING at WATER MISSIONS, INTERNATIONAL this week... only $4425.50 left to reach our goal!! Your support is still needed!!
What a wonderful blessing to finally meet the people at Water Missions, International, Charleston, SC!! We have been volunteering this week and have learned so much more about their mission and passion to bring clean water and the Living Water to millions around the world. With all of your help through donations we were able to give WM $13,903 today, and close the gap on the goal of $30,000 for a complete sustainable water system.
Only $4425.50 to go! Won't you please help us reach the goal before we leave Charleston? Let's see if we can make it to $30,000 this week!
We were glad to once again meet up with Kevin Herr, Church Engagement Coordinator, (pictured rt.) whom we had met last year when he first introduced us to Water Missions, International. He has been a great support and encouragement throughout the year and is full of excitement for the ministry and mission of Water Missions. Mac, a "permanent" volunteer, (pictured below with me), was a great teacher today explaining how to assemble the pressure tanks and valves for the water systems.
Jay Cook, Director of Operations, was also a wonderful person to meet and to speak with about all that is going on at Water Missions, International. Jay has traveled all around the world to the many sites where communities are being assessed or already have been touched by this ministry of love and compassion. We were truly impressed upon learning of the depth and breadth of this organization's vision and how God has blessed every step along the way.
If you are looking for a way to help make a difference in the life of someone, donating your time volunteering at Water Missions is a valuable means to do this. Or, if you can't make the trip to Charleston, donate financially toward a water system. Make a difference! Donate today!!
