Water for Life

Read and Reflect

Scripture Reading: Mark 15:36-39

Jesus thirsted as he hung on the cross, but instead of receiving water, he received sour wine.

Reflection:

We believe that Jesus still asks us to quench his thirst, and we can fulfill his request by bringing water to those who have none. This week, wake up a little earlier than normal. Spend at least five minutes reflecting on these verses and praying for those who still thirst.

Verse to Memorize

Then those who went ahead and those who followed were shouting, “Hosanna! Blessed is the one who comes in the name of the Lord!

Mark 11:9

Fundraising Activity

“Walk for Water”

Map out a course similar in length to what a Kenyan family might have to walk to get water (we recommend between 2 and 12 miles). Charge an entrance fee for participants to Walk for Water, donating proceeds to Water for Life. Provide a bonus for anyone who completes the walk while carrying a full bucket of water.

Fact and Prayer

More than 36% of Kenyans live on less than $1.90 a day
(in 2011 purchasing power parity).

(The World Bank, 2016)

Lord, in Matthew 25:40, you said, “Just as you did it to one of the least of these who are members of my family, you did it to me.” We pray that you would receive all glory and honor as we work to meet the needs of struggling families in Kenya. Please bless their lives and give them the peace of knowing that you are always with them in their suffering. We ask this in the name of Christ. Amen.
