Follow us, following Him.

"Sometimes I would like to ask God why He allows poverty, suffering, and injustice when He could do something about it." ...Well, why don't you ask Him?... "Because I'm afraid He would ask me the same question."

The verse, for I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, obviously is impactful for me.  We take water for granted. We can turn on the faucet, which is amazing on its own, and it is safe to drink. 

Ben is in Haiti right now and he is delivering water to the most dangerous slum in the world.  Hmm... I sit on the comfy couch with my glass of clean water and don't think twice about dumping it out when it is warm.  Or maybe I do now... 

                              My kids don't need to help me bring water home in buckets.

                                      We take showers every day and it is easy. 
                                  The average 5 gallon bucket of water weighs about 40 lbs.
                                       And most women carry them on their heads.

                                       So many buckets and not enough water...
 When the truck is empty, the people with dry buckets will wait until we come back to help them again.
The filling station where we fill up the tanker truck with water to deliver to the slums.

*Lord, keep Ben and his team safe in this dangerous place.  Provide for each person what they need for today...
