"Is it true that in the United States you wash your car, your clothes, and flush your toilets with drinking water?" That's the heartbreaking question one Short-Term Trip participant got when in Haiti last week. Growing up without safe water, the young man asking the question simply could not imagine having safe water to spare.

This World Water Day, as you drink your coffee, wash your hair, or...

“God gives the courage to leave our ‘comfort zone’ and launch out in faith to do wonders in His name. It thrills my heart & soul to be part of short-term trips!”—Fred Smith, Short-Term Trip participant

We just love the women of The Common Well—they’re not afraid of a little yoga or a lot of mud!

Last week they gathered in Austin, Texas, for their very first Yoga Gathering, raising over $4,000 for safe water. This June they’ll be traveling to Guatemala to get their hands dirty as they help drill the well they funded. Let’s give them some LOVE!

What if you never learned to read or write because unsafe water kept you too sick to go to school? According to UNICEF, “more than half of the 59 million out-of-school children live in sub-Saharan Africa”.

Thanks to your support, we CAN and WILL continue to change that statistic so that more children around the world have safe, sustainable water!

“But blessed are those who trust in the LORD and have made the LORD their hope and confidence. They are like trees planted along a riverbank, with roots that reach deep into the water. Such trees are not bothered by the heat or worried by long months of drought. Their leaves stay green, and they never stop producing fruit.” –Jeremiah 17:7-8⠀

“The people of Haiti left an impression on our hearts that will live with us every day. They live in extreme poverty, but their hearts are so beautiful. You can see the love in their eyes when they look at you yet can’t communicate verbally. They share the very little that they have with us and with each another. Their resilience, faith, and hope is nothing I have ever witnessed before.

“Growing up I was always told that the things you take for granted someone else is praying for. I never truly understood the meaning of that until I met these children. The way they spread their love and joy to complete strangers left me speechless. My appreciation for my life, my family, and the little things in this world—such as clean drinking water—has made my heart grow and love these...
