Hey all. I've been super busy this week, so I've neglected the blog. I'm actually on my way out the door to work right now, but I wanted to quick share something with you. Between meetings yesterday I quickly wrote a report for the Impact Nations site and I thought you might like to read it too. I had a great day yesterday, and I hope to find time to tell you about it this weekend. Here's yesterday's report:
I just got back from the shop and I'm feeling very excited. I watched as the men loaded 50 filters onto a borrowed truck that will travel five hours to the province of Maguindanao. In the coming days, these filters will make their way to 5 different villages, occupied by the families of MILF fighters. The MILF (Moro Islamic Liberation Front) is the militant Muslim group that is currently in a violent conflict with the federal government. 50 of their families will be receiving a free bio-sand water filter that will provide them with a lifetime of safe drinking water.
As our Filipino team delivers the filter to them, they will tell each family about how much God loves them and desires for them to be healthy. These impoverished people will begin to realize that the God of the universe knows all about them and cares so much about them that he sent a water filter. Our team will do several follow up visits over the next few months, during which they will slowly reveal the gospel of Jesus Christ. Soon these precious people will come to know that safe water is just the beginning, and God has an even bigger gift for them!
Please pray for our team's safety, as they are working in the conflict zone. Pray that there is a supernatural outpouring of the Father's love as they install the filters in each home.
