What’s going on?
We’ll spend the Lenten season studying the book of Ephesians—an amazing book about becoming all we are meant to be in Christ. God cares deeply about our relational health, our spiritual development, and our sense of purpose at work, at church, and in our families. Whatever stage you are at in your spiritual journey, Ephesians offers practical teaching about growing your faith muscles so that you can venture out into the world and make a difference. It’s a perfect lead-in to Easter!
Thousands of children die every year from a lack of clean drinking water. This Lent, Living Springs is planning to make a big splash about solving this problem. Consider giving up one meal or non-water beverage once a week. Then donate the funds you would have spent on that to help fund Rainwater Storage Tanks that will make clean drinking water accessible to families in Kenya through Matanya’s Hope.
The simple design of a Rainwater Storage Tank allows it to collect water from an iron sheet roof. Rainwater travels down the ridges of the roof into a gutter and through a sieve where debris is filtered out before water enters the tank. A locking spigot at the bottom of the tank allows convenient access to clean drinking water.
Each Rainwater Storage Tank costs several hundred dollars, but the benefits are priceless. You can pick up a “Water Project” donation jar at Living Springs to get involved. And you can keep the project in prayer by following along in the 40-Day Lent Devotional (PDF).
