Tonight our most recent clean water mission team will present and speak to their experiences in the rural Dominican sugar cane village where we built the building that will house a large scale water purification system. The Guyamate batey is a “crossroads” village that sits between several smaller Third World villages. Guaymate actually has one paved street, a couple of stores and two churches. In pictures it doesn’t look Third World in the ways our other projects clearly were. Sadly, however, the short paved street led to massive poverty, houses made of tin and children with diseased swollen bellies. The majority of the illnesses are directly attributable to unclean water. JCBC, along with the Rotary Club of Johns Creek, built the building and paid for the entire water purification system to bring healthy, clean and live-altering water to this area. It cost us $20,000.00 and it was worth every penny and every ounce of effort put into the experience. This is what we do…we change the world and impact God’s Kingdom.
The following video will provide you with an amazing grasp of our work. If you have questions about supporting this work please grab me for a chat. Our long term goal is to place one of these systems each year.
