Some generous friends of Lutheran World Relief have issued a challenge. They will double the value of gifts received — dollar for dollar — between now and August 31, up to a total of $171,000!
Will you accept this challenge so your gift this summer can do twice as much good?
Those gifts mean so much in places like Nicaragua, where contaminated water sources threaten the health and livelihoods of already struggling people. With the help of people like you, we’re reaching out to them.
In one of the country’s driest regions, San Luis, we’ve built one well and rehabilitated seven others. Now families can access clean water to drink and are growing nutritious vegetables and basic grains in their household gardens.
When I visited San Luis, one local woman told me, “With this new well we can see, touch and drink the love of God.”
Your matched gift can bring water to so many others in need. If you can, please give generously today. Then watch as God multiplies your efforts.
But remember, the match ends August 31. So please don’t delay!
