Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms. If anyone speaks, they should do so as one who speaks the very words of God. If anyone serves, they should do so with the strength God provides, so that in all things God may be praised through Jesus Christ. To him be the glory and the power for ever and ever. Amen. 1 Peter 4:10-11

Rain Water Cistern Mission Accomplished {The James 1:27 Project}

This is Francesca and her 3 sons. They live in Kenya and are being aided by The James 1:27 Project. Through God's grace and generous customers, we were able to provide the funds for a house for her and her family. She knows that her help comes from the Lord, as her favorite verse states! We love that! 

After her home was completed, the next goal for The Orange Bird was to provide a rain water cistern system for her home. The closest water source is a half a mile walk there and half a mile back. We are so thrilled to tell you that we have reached that goal and are donating the money to The James 1:27 Project for the system!! God is so good!

We hope that when they are able to use the water that is stored up for them, they will think of John 7:37-39a when Jesus tells the crowd that is listening to Him teach, " 'Let anyone who is thirsty come to me and drink.Whoever believes in me, as Scripture has said, rivers of living water will flow from within them." By this He meant the Spirit'... God wants to satisfy His people's spiritual thirst with the refreshment of His Spirit, whether those people are in small town America or Machakos, Kenya or anywhere else. We are His and He loves us. YOU are His. He loves YOU.
