Community Development

2019 Project “Community Development”

Communities Need WATER – but there is a crisis!

Our solution to the water crisis is simple: an inexpensive, home-based filtration system, an empowered community, and you. Read on and we’ll explain.

A simple bucket and a small filter…

Using technology inspired by our own biology, the Sawyer PointONE filter system functions much like kidney dialysis does to filter out impurities in the water, leaving clean, drinkable water.  This amazingly effective filter can be set up in five minutes. It requires only a 5-gallon container and the filtration kit. It is simple enough that adults of all education levels can learn how to use it.  No electricity, no complicated maintenance… guaranteed for a lifetime of clean, safe water!

…churches and their communities…

We have learned that effective technology is only the first step in bringing clean water to God’s thirsty children.  A sustainable, long-lasting solution depends on other  factors, including committed partnerships. We believe churches are ideal partners in our quest to change the reality of dirty water in marginal communities.  Churches are concerned for the health and well-being of children, and have proven to be reliable partners for bringing clean water to the most vulnerable children.  We invite churches to make a faith-based commitment, for we know that adding “the God-Spark” will charge and sustain a others for compassionate, joyful service to their families and neighbors… and that means the resources we invest will be maximized to the fullest possible impact.

..and you!

You’ve read this far because you share our passion for God’s thirsty children, and you’re intrigued by solution for this challenge.  It takes energy, resources, and partnerships!  As a donor, volunteer, or even mission partner, you can  give the gift of clean water in Hondura India, Philippines, Niger, and Jamaica.  We believe we can even help Guam and Saipan be better prepared for typhoon response with these amazing filters.

Most importantly our churches also have the greatest message of all – Jesus is the eternal spring of eternal life that will last forever.
