Imagine drinking clean water for the first time, cool, clear and refreshing. Everything becomes different. It seems so simple. It’s just water, but it changes everything.
What is it about this change that opens up life altering possibilities?
You and I have an opportunity to create massive change. Change that matters. We can impact lives. We can bring good to a place where it can’t be missed, delivering immediate improvement.
Remote villages in Malawi, Africa struggle to gain access to clean water. Life expectancy is low, 38 – 45 years depending on the source of data. Regardless of the exact number, the glaring truth is one filled with disease. Bad water sources bring disease.
Albuquerque’s First Baptist Church is committed to mission work in Malawi. Lives have been transformed through the Gospel. In 2015 a village was also transformed by a well. Clean water means changed lives. Access to clean water means less disease and a chance for better health. Without clean water limits are set and barriers can’t be overcome.
In the coming year we have an opportunity to help drill another well in a remote Malawi village. Doing so will provide access to safe, clean water for people who desperately need it. Lives will be transformed.
In May, 2016 a group from AFBC will be on the ground in Malawi teaching God’s Word. They will visit a prison. They will walk along miles of dirt roads, sharing with those in remote villages. They will see God at work. You and I might not be able to make the trip, but we can make a difference through the gift of water. With our financial support they will be able to drill a new well.
Sunday night, October 25th, AFBC will raise the monies to dig the new well by using our coins (and dollars), to vote for the best chili during the annual Chili Cook Off. It will be a night of worship through music and fellowship through food and conversation. Our goal is to raise money to drill a well in Malawi. Will you join me in making this effort?
Bring your “Change for Chili” and help us raise the needed funds to change lives.
