Meals from the Heartland

We just returned from 5 days in Des Moines. We met so many wonderful people. 12,000 volunteers packaged 4 million meals to be sent around the world to starving children. We were also able to ship the unit to Nepal that I talked of several days ago. We are waiting to hear back from him.

Hope and goosebumps

I have a story of a friend who went to Africa with us. Her husband went to a gas station recently and somehow (impossible) his truck locked and he had to wait on someone to help. He began visiting with the man working in the station. He is from Nepal and came to the United States to find a way to get safe water back to his country. Pray as I begin a dialogue with him that we can get his people help.

50th wedding anniversary

Last night John and I were able to be a part of a very special celebration. We were invited to speak and demonstrate the water unit at a 50th anniversary party for Don and Virginia Beck. The party was open to family and special friends and we were honored to be invited. They asked for no gifts, but asked for monetary gifts to be given to the Compassion Fund at Harmony Church for water units. Thank you for your willingness to help the children of the world.

Busy weekend

Saturday night John and I were in Southern Iowa to a potluck and ice cream social. John was able to talk a bit about the water unit and demonstrate how it works. There was much good food and fellowship. Last night we were in Memphis, Mo. at the Baptist Church for the evening service. John and Mike were able to share during the sermon time and we were so glad to be asked as guests speakers.

Thailand and Cambodia

We received word last night that our team is back from Cambodia. They were able to distbribute 20 units and working on the opportunity of putting 200 more units and Uganda. These would go to pastors and each one would have a unit for his church and village. We are looking forward to having Eddie come and visit in August.

50 units to Sudan

We believe that today they are going to be able to get the 56 units out of customs in Uganda and take them into Sudan. Samuel and Joseph are our team leaders on this project. The units will be distributed to pastors who are taking classes and church planting. Each will have a water unit to take back to his village church.

Pure Water for All

The purpose of this blog is to keep a record of the many wonderful blessings that happen every day in our ministry, Pure Water for All. My goal is to provide pictures from our meetings and contacts and share stories of the villages around the world that we visit.
