“Here is a boy with five small barley loaves and two small fish, but how far will they go among so many?”Jesus said, “Have the people sit down.” There was plenty of grass in that place, and they sat down (about five thousand men were there).Jesus then took the loaves, gave thanks, and distributed to those who were seated as much as they wanted. He did the same with the fish." John 6:9-11
Somewhere in an African village, teen-age girls get to go to school in the morning rather than having to make a trip to the nearest stream to carry water. In that village, the children and aged will be spared from cholera and other water-borne bacterial maladies because they will have clean water flowing from a newly drilled well in the center of their village!
The women of that village will no longer need to risk the dangers and the difficulties of carrying their laundry to the river and back.
Everyone in that village will stay healthier because they will have clean safe water to use for cleaning their homes and dishes.
The quality of daily life in that village has been significantly upgraded for generations because a modern, deep, sanitary well has been drilled in their village!
Much like the little boy who offered his simple lunch to Jesus Who used it to feed thousands of hungry people, some FredWes people gave what they could afford to give to God through World Hope International toward the goal of drilling a fresh water well. Because generous people worked together and trusted God, the FredWes family raised the $8,500 needed for a well PLUS several thousand toward the NEXT well!
This coming Sunday we will receive the exciting news from Scott Drury about where our well was drilled! When you leave church Sunday you will know the name of the village and the name of the state and nation where the village is located!
Won't that be exciting!
You won't want to miss that announcement!
Also, on Sunday we will be receiving pledges to launch the fund-raising for next year's "Flow H2O" Well Project. Once those promises are fulfilled at the end of April 2015, we will send in the money to bless another African village!
Many can be blessed and much can be done when a few faithful followers give what they can to meet a need!
Have you been praying about your commitment to "Flow H2O?"
FredWes is "Loving people to LIFE" all around the world!
