Member congregations of the LCMS, Jonesboro Circuit work to combine efforts to be a blessing to others, locally, nationally and abroad. Together and with your help, we can accomplish great things. We launch this campaign with a spirit of thanksgiving, and in memory of our spiritual mentors on our faith journey.
We would like to partner with Water To Thrive, to sponsor one well in an Ethiopian community. Worldwide, nearly a billion people lack access to clean, safe water. More than a third of that number lives in East Africa. Water born disease and death from unsafe drinking water are tragically, far too common. The burden of collecting water, falls mostly on women and children. A safe, accessible well in a community would enable children to spend more time on their education, and help women have more opportunities to provide for their families. Not only does a well protect the health of a community in need, but it impacts and sustains community development and economic growth as well. We want to raise $5,000.00 to help transform the lives of rural Africans, by bringing sustainable, safe water to those who need it most. We would love your help to make this goal a reality.
