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!

If you were invited to be the leader of a small group at church or a task force at work, how would you respond? For some, the immediate response would be, “Oh no, I can’t do that; I’m not a leader!” Others might say, “Let me think [or pray] about it” and then come back with a similar response. Only on a rare occasion might someone respond immediately with “Wow! Really? I’d love to do that! Thanks for asking.”
