charity water

I am still processing the trip and what the Lord wants us to do with all that we saw and the people we met.  We know we want to support KVI and it's ministry, and are praying through the rest. 

I found this website and loved the idea.  I have a September birthday and think it is a good way to do something right now.  I was so humbled by the joy that I found in the people of Ethiopia. They have little materially, but have huge hearts!  We tend to get things clouded by all of the stuff.

Not that I expected b-day gifts from you guys, but just wanted you to know about this event that is taking place right now!  They will drill 333 new wells in Ethiopia.  This will literally change the lives of thousands currently living without safe water.  That is exciting!

so HAPPY to give you a birthday present!!!
Honestly after I saw this I wanted a September Birthday! So AWESOME!!
Hope you, others and especially Abe (always hardest on the babes:) have switched time zones and are getting a bit of rest at night!

I love this! I saw it the other day on Holli's blog and will definitely give you this for your birthday, too!
It's a relief 'cause you're impossible to shop for. :)

Happy Birthday to you! I am sure your greatest gift this year will be your little Abe, but I have included some water as well! Thanks for being a special friend. Blessings, Pam

The Winters are excited to give you one of the best gifts ever! We've been following the drilling of the wells on the webpage. So much better than anything else we could get for our birthdays! Except for maybe our babies :)

love this idea ... you are always thinking of others ... Jamie in Haiti is doing a similar thing ... her children are in a rescue center that was effected by IKE and they are having trouble getting water and food ... I pray God puts it on all our hearts to help, pray, and love as much as we can !!!

Did my package arrive yet ???
