World Water Day, March 22

ShareThis

Water is a basic requirement for all life, yet water resources are facing increasing demands from, and competition among, users. In 1992, the United Nations General Assembly designated March 22nd of each year as the World Water Day.

 

So during this focus on water, let me share with you about WMU®’s Pure Water, Pure LoveSM (PWPL) ministry. This clean water ministry has literally refreshed and nourished thousands of lives both physically and spiritually, as these are all areas where there is a missionary presence and contact. Many of you have played a part in this life-giving mission. Just in the past 12 months more than 600 water filter units and more than 2,000 additional replacement water filters have been given to missionaries.

 

In addition, since 2005, PWPL has provided funding for clean water projects in more than 25 countries and three states in the United States. We are so thankful to all of you who give to this vital ministry!

Some months ago I began to think about how I wanted to spend my 60th birthday. I had read and heard of people doing an amount of acts of kindness equal to their birth year. Well, that’s a lot of acts of kindness when you’re turning 60. So I decided on 60 minutes of service as a way to celebrate.

As we start a new church year, have you considered starting a new missions group through the 1-2-5 Challenge?
