Thursday is World Water Day!

... from the UN Water website

"International World Water Day is held annually on 22 March as a means of focusing attention on the importance of freshwater and advocating for the sustainable management of freshwater resources.
An international day to celebrate freshwater was recommended at the 1992 United Nations Conference on Environment and Development (UNCED). The United Nations General Assembly responded by designating 22 March 1993 as the first World Water Day."

Now, the UN means well, but with all their facts, figures, Millenium goals, monetary wealth and actual on-the-ground projects they have only been mildly successful at getting clean water to all those needing it. We believe that G+d is the best Father, He is good all of the time, and He never intended for those He created in His own image to live in any sort of poverty.  Jesus has answers to all of our problems and He chooses to work through His church to solve these problems.  We, The Church, now need to step up in love, prayer, and generosity. Here are a couple organizations we are praying with and financially supporting who are providing clean water around the world.
Water Missions International (Charleston, SC)

Ask The Lord what part you have to play in all of this.  Enjoy sharing from the abundance of resources you have been blessed with!  More information about defeating extreme poverty, and the power of fasting with prayer is available at the Live58 website
