VOLUNTEER TRIP to WATER MISSION a great success!
Our group of 13 volunteers traveled to Charleston, SC, to volunteer with Water Mission, a Christian engineering not-for-profit whose mission it is to develop and bring sustainable water systems to those in need all around the globe. They also bring sanitation solutions and training to the villages. The group was welcomed as family and they worked diligently each day on projects put before them. sanitation solutions around the globe. The group was welcomed as family and worked diligently each day on projects put before them. Each learned about focusing on yesterday's "victory",today's "priority", and whether the were "stuck / not-stuck" if they needed a hand with a difficulty. Much was accomplished and our lives were changed forever! We are so thankful to the staff at WM for sharing their mission with us and allowing us to come up along side them to help. Fields of Grace first partnered with WM in 2014 after meeting Kevin, their volunteer liaison, at a convention in Pittsburgh. After that it was determined to put a clean water system in a school or orphanage somewhere to benefit other kids! Kids helping kids - from Fields of Grace - through Water Mission - to the world! The fundraisers were successful and in less than 1 1/2 yrs. the funds were raised! Thanks go to our many donors and to those who helped in celebrating the "30/30" initiative ($30K for 30 years of ministry for Pr. Peter DeBartolo), which all went to help make this possible. The project has been completed in Honduras and children and adults of the community are benefiting from the clean water which will be there for a lifetime!
Dave Ramsey's FINANCIAL PEACE UNIVERSITY- for YOUTH & YOUNG ADULTS - is currently running for young adults. FPU Jr. is scheduled for Sat., Aug.27th at 9am at Fields of Grace's pavilion.
