I mentioned in a post this past December about our Christmas with a purpose at Seacoast Church. It was amazing to see how so many people, of all ages, gave so unselfishly to a something that could have such a great positive impact on countless people. We took our eyes off of ourselves and saw a global need that we could do something about.
You can imagine with so many people giving water bottles full of coins, bills and checks, that it took a while to get an accurate count on exactly how much money came in. Before we could even get a final number back from the bank, disaster hit the small nation of Haiti. Seacoast Church was able to immediately issue a check to Water Missions International so that a water purification system could be sent to Port-au-Prince to help the hurting people who had no source for clean water. Several other groups and individuals also gave to WMI and they were able to send 12 systems to Haiti just days after the quake. People can live weeks without food but can easily perish without water after just a couple of days. Clean water for Haiti is critical!
I was so encouraged today when I saw this:
I realize that you have many options when it comes to helping out with monetary donations. Please consider giving to Water Missions International… you can give $10 simply by texting “WMI” to 85944 (text ‘yes’ when prompted to confirm). You can also give online through their secure site (click HERE).
Jesus said, “I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.” (Matthew 25:40). Please consider giving to WMI as they work diligently to help these hurting people… and continue to pray for all of the relief efforts in Haiti.
