Cool Clear Water

Today wasn't just another day in this African village; the sun was only just beginning to shine but already you could hear the excitement throughout the village at the new gathering place; it was people laughing and singing, people with a new hope, a wonderful reason to be alive and to enjoy this life, that just days before seemed bleak and hopeless, children were dying from drinking the same contaminated water animals bathe in, but now they had a brand new well and water pump that Life Ministries had drilled right in the vicinity of their village, thanks to those in the U.S, and other countries that were sad that there are still places in many parts of the earth where cool clear water is not available.

Dear James, thank you for sharing this joyful moment of this village where the fresh water supply arrived thanks to private initiatives. Indeed fresh clean water supply is the number one priority for survival! It is so sad, that there are still so many places where this basic necessity is not fulfilled.

While many generous organizations do their best to help those in need, there is on the other side a tremendous waste of financial resources which should be destined to the solution of these problems, but too often they are used for the acquisition of weapons ...

Let us celebrate within our hearts together with those who experience this essential improvement in their lives.

Blessed be life, blessed be water!

Love,
Margherita
