The Wells Project Students: Change Catalysts

Last month our Wells Project student leaders from colleges across the country convened to brainstorm awesomeness—how to be evenmore effective advocates for the thirsty on campuses and in their entire communities. We're excited (and so grateful!) to report that these movers-and-shakers are getting noticed. World changers have a tendancy of doing just that. Pure Charity thinks so, too, and named our peeps their January Change Catalysts.

H2O Project: What is "Good News"?West Seattle Christian Church H2O Project Good News Americas Do Something

H2O Project: What is

Don Jacobs, pastor of West Seattle Christian Church, begins the H2O Project tomorrow with his congregation. On his blog he pondered the meaning of "good news" in context—how do we translate the good news of the gospel into the hearts of people we serve? We extend Christ's living water and the clean water that meets physical needs. Living Water partners with churches to see both come to fruition—we're so grateful to serve shoulder-to-shoulder with them.

El Salvador: A Twist on Team-Building

In early February a 12-person team from Triumph Bancorp in Dallas traveled to the Salvadoran village of El Castaño to drill a well with us as their corporate team building exercise! How cool that a company would use this opportunity to not only draw their hearts closer together as co-workers, but that they would do so as co-laborers with the work God's doing for the thirsty. We're grateful for their presence with our program staff and wanted to share what they'll remember forever. They are first-hand testimonies to the demonstration of God's love. We're inspired.
