Oliver and Elihu
When the Water for Christmas campaign hit two wells last week ($10,000!) we knew it was time to celebrate. Who better than our children to express our unbridled happiness? Here they are dancing for water. You may not find them as irresistibly cute as we do, but you’ll no doubt notice their unrestrained joy. We love that about kids—-they’re silly and happy and passionate and profound. And how wonderful is it that God makes each of us so uniquely? We are all capable of loving in magnificent ways and the water campaign is a testament to how God gifts each of us differently and then uses those gifts in a multitude of ways, all for the betterment of our shared world.
These children are connected, as we all are, to Africa. They may not comprehend the magnitude of this reality yet...but then again perhaps they get it better than anyone.
Give thanks. Give water. Give yourself to something greater. And most of all, do all of these things with great joy.
