Pumpkin Fest!

Pumpkin Fest 2018 was a huge success!  Why?  It was FUN!  We laughed and enjoyed live music and carved pumpkins and made s’mores over an open fire and played games and ate chili, pie, popcorn, peanuts, and cotton candy!  And we made new friends and we celebrated life and community with the greater Roswell/Atlanta community. And people of all faiths and backgrounds attended.  We had close to 250 in attendance.

Wells for Ethiopia Update

Each Spring and Fall we come together in a focused way to think about God’s heart for the poor in our world, to pray for those around our world without access to clean water, and then to DO SOMETHING about it!  This past November we raised $2,363.34 towards the funding our 17th Water Project in Ethiopia!!  After our Spring “Trivia for Water” event and fundraising season we will send $10,000 to our partner, charity:water, who will dig another fresh-water well in Ethiopia within the next 12 to 18 months.  (Remember you can follow the work of our water-drilling rig, Yellow Thunder, by clicking or copying and pasting this link: http://www.mycharitywater.org/p/myprojectsview?project_id=ET.RES.Q4.11.111.001)
