walk for water

This is a powerful video that was made just after we left Ethiopia. Eric, MC, and Tameru headed up north to visit various projects going on up there. This is a 14 year old that volunteered to truly experience what life is like for those in Ethiopia. Please take a moment to watch and try to understand what it would be like to have to make this hike just to get water! We so take turning on our faucets and clear, pure water coming out for granted. I know that I do. Love that the Glimmer folks took video of this journey. Praying my big boys get an opportunity to experience something similar on our trip in October.

I have had many of you ask specific questions about this incredible organization and I can't wait to share more with you soon. Please feel free to email me at teamalexander at mac dot com if you have questions.

Let me know what you think after watching this- would love to know your thoughts...............

Will finish up trip this week. :)

Of course it makes me cry! It gives life to the "walk a mile in my shoes" phrase. Again, reminded of all I take for granted and of what is truly important!
I am not a bit surprised by the concern the Ethiopian people showed for him on the journey, the help they gave him along the way and the encouragement for when he reached the top! So many lessons!

I am angry. Angry that I didn't know. Or perhaps angry that I never took the time to know. Lord forgive me.

My thoughts?
I want to be there now. Digging more wells with my bare hands so that no one has to walk that far for a basic life necessity.
Wow. I want people to GIVE! To GO!
