When Life Gives You Lemons…

Sitting in the courtyard of Mision Sinai in Limones, Mexico last February, 2020 was off to a great start. I was there attending our Yucatan Network Partners’ conference – the first of many in-country partners’ conferences of the year; Sequoyah Hills Presbyterian Church in Knoxville, TN was hosting a gathering for people interested in furthering our ministry in Appalachia; and a couple of our networks were forecasting higher than usual project activity for the first quarter. Then the coronavirus pandemic took center stage and Living Waters for the World's (LWW) world threatened to come to a screeching halt as countries closed their borders; infection rates and death tolls climbed steadily around the world; parents suddenly were cast into the roles of round-the-clock caregivers, stay-at-home workers, and kindergarten teachers.
