2015–2017 Mission Grant: Clean Water and Evangelism Ministry — MOST Ministries, $50,000 fully paid
A grant of $50,000 was awarded to Mission Opportunities Short Term (MOST) Ministries at the 2015 LWML Convention. As of now, $25,000 has been disbursed making it possible for them to send out teams to help others with their physical need of receiving clean water.
In response to the great need for clean water in the third world countries, MOST Ministries purchased 250 water filters that were used in Nicaragua, Guatemala, and Africa. The Clean Water and Evangelism Grant enabled them to provide:
sustainable clean drinking water for 400 people (50 filters),
health, hygiene, and nutrition education workshops for entire communities,
A Nicaraguan family very thankful for their clean water.
Oral Rehydration Spoons for 50 families, which allow mothers to follow simple Spanish instructions on the double-sided measuring spoon and create a hydrating drink from ingredients they already have,
water filters for 95 hosts in these countries to keep them healthy so they can continue to evangelize to their communities. These filters are also shared with local families,
Bible-based curriculum to share the Gospel for entire communities,
increased credibility as the church is seen as truly caring for both the physical needs in addition to preaching the Gospel, and
105 Sawyer Water Filters to be used for the first quarter of 2017.
The grant money has allowed the mission team to work with several local pastors who live and work in the La Cartonera and Maranonal communities. Sharing the love of Jesus is always the end goal and remains the reason for MOST Ministries to do what they do. MOST Ministries is thankful for the LWML’s support and prayers.
