No pessimist ever discovered the secret of the stars or sailed an uncharted land, or opened a new doorway for the human spirit. Helen Keller
That's right, not Activism, which sounds a bit militant, but Activision, which has a solution and full of the Passion that GOD has placed upon our Hearts, we Fearlessly plunge forward armed with the vision of Clean and Living Water for every living soul!
Just wanting to matter. Wanting to be the difference in as many lives as possible. Wanting to serve in the kingdom of GOD to our utmost potential.
If I had to write a doctrine or statement of belief, I guess that'd be it. I hadn't planned it that way, it just came out, as does all my writing. I'm off the cuff. I don't prepare. I try to get out of the way and let the Spirit lead.
So, I've got some statistics and links and videos to share concerning our passion for every human being to have the RIGHT to life sustaining water, because as you'll see, huge corporations are sucking it up and selling it for more than gasoline.
Please go to this link and sign the petition to make it a right for ALL people on the earth to have an inalienable right to access clean life sustaining drinking water! http://article31.org/

So, I ask of you ONE thing. Seek GOD about your involvement in this. YOU are the potential difference for life or death for a great many people. More than you might realize. For $2000 YOU can provide clean drinking water for up to 10,000 people per day! YOU are what we asked GOD for. Similar burdened hearts to join us in this cause for basic human rights and service for the kingdom of GOD.
- Raise funds - Everything is tax deductible and every penny goes towards clean water for impoverished people. (no paid persons or administrative costs or over head)
- Shares - GOD has prepared someone to hear You on this very thing.
- Go on a mission with us - You'll be changed forever
- Pray, for us, for funds, for your level of involvement
- BE, the difference that GOD created you to be on a grander scale than you imagined.
Now to GOD who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to GOD be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen. (Ephesians 3:20-21)---
My heart is Living Out Loud for Jesus and those who thirst for Living Water!
