Praying for a “Miracle Well” in Guatemala

In the poorest back-country of Guatemala sits a village of 2500 people who are desperate for life’s most simple commodity: clean water.  The dirty river water that is brought in weekly is all they have, but it causing the 1000 children in the village unnecessary disease, and even premature death.

But thanks to the generosity of many around Central Texas this week, the children of Pueblo Modelo have hope for clean water.  The power, deep water well, and structure necessary for this project is $65,000.  That means your gift of $65 can provide one child clean water for the rest of his life, and literally transform a village for generations to come in the name of Jesus!  In the past two days, the folks at KLGO radio have been gracious enough to offer their airtime for us to raise awareness of this need.  And as of this evening, we have raised over $12,000 toward this well.  That leads into this weekend, where a number of churches around Austin will partner together by collecting offerings on behalf of these children.  I’m praying for a miracle, and I long to see the faces of these wonderful people as they enjoy a plentiful stream of clear water.  Would you pray with me?

Wow. It's Quiet Here...
