dare to hope.


This afternoon what seemed like an unattainable goal was realized.
The Project 320 well was funded.
An entire village will now get fresh clean water.

Thanks to you.

Who donated.
Who crafted.
Who prayed.
Who encouraged.

It is only Tuesday.

What does the rest of the week hold?

God is the God of infinitely more.
He proves that time and time again.

I am amazed.
Humbled.
Broken.

That God would use me.
Use my friends.
Use you.
To change the course of history.

To save 250 lives.

Because in that village
lives a little boy.
Or a little girl.

Who only this morning had little hope for their future.

But now they will
grow.
thrive.
learn.

They can change the world.

The future is much different for that village.
I believe that the future will be much different for us.

Thank you.
Thank you.

  2. I've been thinking about it all day, since Heather posted it! How amazing that is... but, that of course God would be bigger than anyone could have ever dreamed. He's doing amazing things because of yours and the other girls willingness and big hearts.
