Mission Update: Project Water Well – A Prophetic Connection!
Even before I saw children in Uganda trying to collect filthy water from the ditches, I have wanted to see clean water available to those who do not have it. In 2009, because of God’s favor, I was able to distribute 1,000 LifeStraws™ to Ugandan schoolchildren. Then just before Christmas 2010, my firsthand account of Pastor Peter Sewakiryanga’s work in the village of Kyampisi swayed the Rotary Club of Fort Lauderdale to build a water-well there. I cannot describe the JOY that filled my heart when I heard that news! Glory to God!!!
So you can imagine my excitement when my pastor, Scott Westbrook of Riverstone Church, recently shared a project to raise $4,800 for a water-well! As he was describing it to the congregation, I wondered if the friends of The Father’s Love Int’l Ministries would join in to help accomplish this act of kindness. Once the funds come in for this project, the ministry who commissions the digging of the wells will then let us know its location.
Here is what I am seeing prophetically through this united effort: I believe God is going to connection us to a community that we don’t yet know! It is my prayer that you will join in this effort, and then watch and see what the Lord does through it.
Let me leave you with this sweet testimony. One of the women at Riverstone Church shared how her eight-year old son proudly gave her 7 pennies for the project. He announced, “The water-well can now be built!” His mother explained it would take more than 7 pennies, but the best thing for him to do was to pray and ask God how much he was to give. (I love her wisdom!) He came back later with his piggy bank in hand and reported the Lord said to give it all. The boy then told his five-year old sister, “It feels SO GOOD to give so that other children can have clean water!” She in turn brought her piggy bank to her mom and gave her the money she had been saving for a toy. As she shared, I don’t think there wasn’t a dry eye in the church. It’s no wonder that Jesus urges us to come to Him as a child!
My question is simple; will you do as these children did and ask God if you are to help with this village’s miracle? If the Lord asks you help with the building of this water-well, please go to www.thefathersloveim.org to give through PayPal with a credit or debit card. If you prefer to send a check or money order, mail it to The Fathers Love Int’l, PO Box 1573, Buford, GA, 30542. Please memo “water.”
Thank you for your thoughtful consideration. I hope to hear from you soon!
In the Father’s love,
