Zambia (MNN) — Nearly 1 billion people in the world still lack access to clean water, and Global Aid Network (GAiN) is helping by providing safe water to people in 30 countries.
This summer, GAiN is encouraging people, like you to join them in traveling to Zambia and distributing water filters that were purchased by funds raised during World Water Day, March 22. The trip takes place July 31-August 11.
You can help meet the physical needs of struggling Zambians by distributing aid such as food, school supplies, clothing, along with water filters. As you distribute aid to the orphanages, schools, hospitals, and communities, you will have opportunities to share the Gospel.
In 1991, Zambia was declared a "Christian" nation, but since then, influences from other religions have grown and are challenging this declaration. Last year, GAiN sent a team to expand the Gospel to churches, schools, and orphanages.
The trip's primary audience this year is four rural communities that are desperate for water filters. If you are over 16 and want to see firsthand what providing water to communities can do, click here.
The team will fly into the capital of Zambia and spend a majority of their time at this location. They will then travel to rural areas to minister in the outlying communities and schools. Registration for this trip ends on April 26, 2013.
If you cannot go on the trip, keep the team in your prayers. Pray for their safety in travel and health. Pray that they will have many opportunities to share the Gospel.
