One of our primary goals at Revelation7 is to help those who are in need. It’s imperative that we are the hands and feet of Jesus (1Cor 12:27). Around the world there are over 800 million people that struggle to find clean water daily. Over 2 billion people don’t have a decent toilet. 289,000 children under 5 die each year due to preventable water borne diseases. That’s 800 kids that die every day, or 1 child every two minutes. The numbers are heartbreaking to say the least.
In these villages, the women and children’s days are consumed with traveling for hours, sometimes carrying 40-pound jars to find water. The little water they do find is often brown and contaminated with bacteria but they drink it anyway because they have no choice. Without clean water, these communities are ravished by malnutrition, disease, and unsanitary living conditions. They have no chance of survival and no hope for their families.
If a water well is built in one of these villages everything changes. The community begins to thrive and flourish. Instead of walking for hours each day, women get to care for their families and the children get to go to school. Living conditions improve immediately. Health and life are restored. Most importantly, there is hope for the future.
Every time you make a purchase from Revelation7, 10% of the proceeds will go to building a water well and providing a toilet at a school in one of these communities. Not only will they have clean water and a much-needed toilet, but most importantly they will feel the love, grace, and power of Jesus Christ! That’s a game changer that will save souls and transform lives!
It costs approximately $18,000 to fund one of these projects. We’re going to partner with Lifewater International, a Christian organization whose sole purpose is providing clean water to different areas all over the world. Once we raise the full $18,000, we’ll pray about a community that Jesus wants us to bless and then Lifewater will go to work. We’ll post pictures and updates throughout the entire process so you, the customer, can see the impact your money is making in the lives of others! Please check out their website at lifewater.org.
If you give even a cup of cold water to one of the least of my followers, you will surely be rewarded.
