Walking for Water

FinalWaterWalk1

Cru Staff kids learn about the importance of clean drinking water around the world.

This summer, while Kim and I were taking seminary classes and reconnecting with the mission and vision of Cru, Joah and Micah were participating in a Cru conference for middle school staff kids. They had Bible Studies together, heard from great speakers and also grew in awareness of the world.

One morning they carried 5 gallon buckets of water three miles from the city park pond to a water filtration system. The average person without running water walks that far every day in order to get water.

The cloudy, unhealthy water became crystal clear after going through the filters. Each filter is just $18 and will provide a family of four clean water for up to ten years.

The students participating in this “Water Walk Challenge” donated and raised money to provide water filters for 400 families.

Just as important, the families receiving these filters also learn about Jesus, the source of living water.

Thank you for your partnership!
