Guatemala Mission Partnership Holds Virtual Fundraiser
On Saturday, Nov. 7, the Guatemala Mission Partnership (GMP) held its first ever virtual fundraiser by creating a fundraising video that premiered on YouTube.
The fundraising team did a lot of advanced planning to make this happen: researching best practices, recording and editing the video, and updating their website and Facebook page. They spread the word several ways: an online event and email marketing campaign through their website, their new YouTube Channel, and their Facebook page.
Living Waters for the World truly is "mission for everyone.” Volunteers come from every Christian denomination, and every walk of life. This is a ministry where ordinary Americans can love their neighbors and tremendously impact the world.
When I finally participated in my first Living Waters for the World water system installation I wondered, what took me so long to fully commit? For a lifelong active Christian, it is hard to admit that it took going on a mission trip out of the country for me to fully acknowledge that God really does provide for me daily. It was obvious from the start that God has been active in this endeavor. Somehow, though, it was just more obvious when I was in El Salvador.
When you see all of the small children laughing and talking and playing, coming up to you and thanking you with their small hugs, you can’t put words to what you feel. Knowing that you are helping to give the children health and with that – life, it makes your eyes water. What else is there?
I have met the most dedicated, loving, caring, friendly, selfless, helpful people through my work with Living Waters for the World! I often refer to my LWW and Clean Water U friends as my “other family,” and the blessings I have received from knowing them are uncountable. I have never encountered a more dedicated group of people who love life and mankind, and want to give it all to God to help their fellow brothers and sisters in Christ.
