Clean water is one of the most basic human needs, yet thousands of people all over the world go without it every day. Water-borne illnesses kill more people than war, natural disasters, AIDS, and hunger. Water Missions International, based in my hometown of Charleston, SC, is seeking to change that by providing sustainable water filtration systems in third-world and developing countries.
Thousands of people living here in my current city of Louisville, KY are currently without a home and without hope. The Jefferson Street Baptist Center exists in order to change that. Affectionately called "Jeff Street," this incredible ministry is bringing hope and help to Louisville's homeless in very practical ways, all while sharing the good news of Jesus Christ.
