Clean Water Arrives in Pueblo Nuevo

I first wrote about the water situation in Pueblo Nuevo here last year. We always knew that the situation was bad, but after finding out the facts we could not delay our water filter program any longer. Providing a water filter for every family living in Pueblo Nuevo has become our top priority in addition to children's ministry and will remain our focus until every person in Pueblo Nuevo has access to clean water.

Each filter costs $50. If you are interested in providing a family with clean water, please visit our website and donate online.

Helps International is the organization we are working with to provide families with clean water. Helps has been actively making these filters since 1984.

A Helps International representative teaching us to assemble and work the filters and giving a lesson on the importance of clean water and good hygiene. Marco teaching how to assemble filters. "Whoever believes in me, as the Scripture has said, streams of living water will flow from within him." John 7:38

Marco teaching about Living Water to those receiving filters.

Just a handful of families that received filters. Twenty families in Pueblo Nuevo now have clean water. Approximately 180 families still need filters.
