I spent some time with these GA’s (Girls in Action) on Wednesday night as they decorated water bottles with the words “God loves you.” They were working on a mission project called “Pure Water, Pure Love.”
According to the Woman’s Missionary Union website, “Since 1997 the WMU has been meeting one of the most basic human needs of missionaries through Pure Water, Pure Love. The goal of this ministry is to provide missionaries and the people they serve with clean drinking water, free from disease-causing microorganisms, at no cost to them.”
So, here were these girls on a Wednesday night at First Baptist Church, having fun and working to raise money so that little girls in Africa (for example) could have clean drinking water. And that’s the thing about bringing heaven to earth: often when you’re doing it for others it happens for you.
See you in church!
