“Half of the world’s hospital beds are occupied by people suffering from water-borne disease. Lack of water and sanitation was the number one cause of school dropout. Women in Africa spend 40 billion hours just hauling water. Time that could be spent on family, education, and productive work. Safe water is the fundamental first step in human development.”
Practical Idea: Share this video in your small group ministry and discuss how your church can link access to clean water and sharing the Living Water of Christ to a world in need. Or, more generally, discuss how meeting the needs of the suffering can be a powerful witness to the hope we have in Christ.
