Partnering with the Outreach Foundation, this team will experience more than just a clean water/poverty alleviation project, a relation-based work movement is happening within communities of subsistence level farmers. Many are indigenous Ch’ols, and they suffer from poor health due in part to the lack of access to clean water. Ch’ol Presbyterian laymen organize families to work together to build family-owned cisterns that collect rainfall.
Year after year, hundreds of families have easy access to millions of gallons of rainwater. But most importantly, the Gospel is shared and its implications are lived out by our partners in unique ways that people clearly notice. Mutual respect grows, and we pray the Holy Spirit will empower the hearts of all involved to be assured of the grace of Jesus Christ.
