Thought for the day: The Gift of Safe Water


“And whoever gives one of these little ones even a cup of cold water because he is a disciple, truly, I say to you, he will by no means lose his reward.” Matthew 10:42 ESV

In a country where one in four people lack access to safe water, these children in Rwanda are celebrating the fact they have clean water thanks to a RESPOND Initiative.

“The children are very grateful for this intervention. [They] are very happy to have clean water. And they can use it in many different ways. We have water filters, so they can drink water freely.”

Thank God that we can just turn on a tap and drink: without worrying about contracting stomach worms, dysentery, or cholera. The things that we take for granted, eh?
