“As a Christian I am called to love my neighbor and be a blessing to my world. I have always wanted to do that in very basic and practical ways. For the past twenty years I have been able to serve in different roles along the border of Mexico meeting the basic needs of my neighbors and community. Just in the last 10 years I have become more aware of the need for clean drinking water around the world. I’m not sure there is a more urgent or basic need that faces our world. Working with Give Clean Water allows me the opportunity to accomplish both of these desires that are close to my heart.”
