... If a brother or sister is poorly clothed and lacking in daily food, and one of you says to them, “Go in peace, be warmed and filled,” without giving them the things needed for the body, what good is that? So also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead. (James 2:14-17)
Even though our core mission is to "make disciples of the nations" (Matt 28:19-20), Touch + Lift Ministries also feels compelled to help provide "our neighbors" with some of their most basic needs (James 2:14-17). This is faith with works. Today, billions of people are living in extreme poverty without the things "needed for the body" like food, shelter, basic healthcare and education. Millions of these "made in His image" (Gen 1:27) have no access to safe drinking water and are dying from preventable and treatable diseases.
|Would you choose to drink this water? There are millions|
that simply don't have a choice.
The estimated 844 million people around the world who do not have privileged access to clean water are left with no option other than to fetch and drink contaminated water which claims the lives of nearly 3.5 million people each year. And of these 3.5 million people, 1.5 million are children. To put that into some perspective, that would mean that 3 children die every minute from water-related diseases. That's 4,320 children per day which is more than the number of children's lives claimed by AIDS, malaria and measles combined. That's more than the number of lives claimed on 9/11. How can we allow this continue?
Touch + Lift Ministries would like to invite YOU to participate in The Eighty100 Project. By donating $100 toward the drilling of a bore hole, YOU and 79 others would provide a village in Africa with clean drinking water for up to the next 100 years. It's that simple. If 80 people donate $100, a bore hole can be drilled. Of course we would welcome any size donation. It is our hope that you will see how easy it is to share the love of Christ by "loving your neighbors" on a global scale.
Would you consider being one of the eighty who WILL make a difference?
