World Water Day, March 22


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!

Many of the population of military veterans I serve in my job as a VA hospital chaplain suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder. One such veteran is very special to me, as he is a fellow chaplain. I asked him if PTSD affected his ability to listen to God. Without hesitation, he said, “Absolutely!”
