I give you my rich and sincere thanks’ to you and yours.
This month I will address a basic need so common that the importance is often overlooked as we here in the US have it easily available, I am talking about access to clean water. This is primarily for drinking and cooking and we are talking about the country of Haiti, the poorest country in our Hemisphere and one of the poorest countries in the world.
Without a doubt, you already know how important water is to all human beings, especially the children. Star of Hope supports over 25,000 children every day and that is a large number of children. We strive to be sure that every one of them has access to clean drinking water.
We have a long way to go in Haiti. Fifty percent of children lack access to clean drinking water, and only one in four have access to something you and I would call a simple toilet.
Star of Hope through a partnership with a drilling company is in a position where we can get a $12,000 hand pump well drilled and installed for only $5,000. This well will save lives and make a community vibrant and reduce disease.
We want to drill more water wells; we want you to help us with an extra gift for this need. Some of you might be able to afford to drill a well at $5,000; it’s a reachable goal for many of you. Yet there is also great strength when many come together to drill a well. If 50 people each give 100 dollars, then together we will be able to drill a well.
There are many ways an individual can raise money for a well. If you want ideas, call me and I will be happy to share ideas. The important thing is to make sure that together can give clean water to the ones without.
Our friends Glorie and Joe hosted a dinner last week and they want to drill 5 wells, we are on the way but need more help, is it you?
God bless you and thank you for everything you have done I sent out a blessing to your family members and for you.
Peace and pray for all who are sick where you are and all over the globe.
In His Name

You already know the importance of water. One thing you probably didn't know is that the cholera outbreak from 2010 is still creating health problems especially for children in Haiti.
Every day children in Haiti spend many hours collecting water. They place heavy buckets of water on their heads and walk mile after mile to provide water for their family's basic needs.
Please, just for a moment, stop and get an image in your mind of how this might look.
