Oh, how the time flies. It doesn’t feel like very long ago that Water to Thrive was just a big idea, that a small group of people has now turned into a reality. The dream is now in full force because April 2018 marks our TENTH YEAR as a non-profit! This milestone year is a big deal for us, and we’re excited you’re going to be along for the ride.
We always have big goals for the lives we can touch through W2T, and this year is no different. For our 10th anniversary, we’ve set a goal to have 1,000 wells funded by the end of 2018. As we stand now, we’ve received the funding for about 844 wells. That means we’ve got 156 wells to go. It’s definitely a big goal, but if we’ve learned anything in our ten years, it’s that we have amazing people who stand behind us and help us accomplish big things!
To add to the celebrations, Water to Thrive founder Dick Moeller will also be leading a unique 10th anniversary trip this summer to Ethiopia. During the 19-day trip (May 29th – June 17th) you’ll not only get to embrace the rich culture and history of Ethiopia, but you will visit at least one project site and community from each of W2T’s 10 years. This will be a truly amazing experience, and if you have ever considered going but haven’t made the jump, this is the year to do it. Dick will be hosting a conference call on Monday, February 19th from 4-5 pm Central time to discuss the highlights of the trip and answer any questions you may have. For more information about the call or the trip, email Dick directly at: firstname.lastname@example.org
We are so excited to see what all God has in store for W2T this upcoming year, and we’ll be here to bring you along every step of the way.
