Our dear sister in Christ, Melissa Salomon, who recently visited our children’s home on the “Beyond Walls Tour” wrote to us to let us know how she is making a difference. Here is her story:
“When I was on the trip our group learned that 1 in 20 children don’t see their fifth birthday due to diseases that are directly related to drinking unclean water. The community we visited, Lake Atititlan has this very problem. What if our preschool children could help?
Our goal was that each child in our 250 child preschool would contribute something, because working together, a little bit can make a big difference. We ended up raising $950, enough to provide water filters for 24 families.”
Thank you Melissa for your heart for all children, here in the U.S. and around the world. We are so Blessed by your example of what one person can do to help those in need.
