In the 25th chapter of Matthew's gospel, Jesus tells us that whenever we feed the hungry, give water to the thirsty or clothe the naked, we're actually feeding, clothing and giving to Jesus himself. This is why we give a birthday gift to Jesus every year during the Christmas season. In 2005, we gave clothes to the homeless men of the Kansas City Rescue Mission. Last year we gathered presents for a family through the Angel Tree ministry.
This year we're giving to Water Partners
International. The people at Water Partners have told us that all the money raised will go to help their work in Ethiopia. I cannot imagine a better gift to give than helping the poorest of the world's poor to gain access to safe and clean drinking water.
We'll be collecting money all the way through January. Please make your check out to Trinity Family, putting "Water Partners" in the memo and we'll send one big check to Water Partners. You can check out their website at http://www.water.org/
It's amazing to see how God can use our church to not only impact our little corner of the world but other parts of our world as well. I'm so proud of our church's global perspective and Christian generosity.
I'm also excited that Life Stream Christian church in Gardner has chosen to partner with us in supporting Water Partners!
