Christmas is just around the corner, which means the World Help Gifts catalog is back! And it’s full of ways you can choose to transform a life. Every gift is unique, which means there’s a gift that’s perfect for you!
Many of our gifts are immediate — they provide help right away. Some are future-focused investments that provide long-term, sustainable solutions.
Clean water is a gift that does both.
When you give clean water, you immediately improve a person’s health. He no longer has to worry about waterborne diseases. Plus, because he doesn’t have to travel long distances to fetch water every day, he has more time for school or work.
With more time for school, a child will be more likely to finish his education and get a good job. And with more time for work, a parent will be better able to provide for his family and escape poverty for good.
Perhaps the greatest blessing that clean water can offer is the opportunity to introduce people to the Living Water. Wells and clean-water projects often are built close to the local church, so when people from the village come to collect water, they have an opportunity to hear about Jesus Christ.
Imagine a person who wants nothing to do with the church. Then, compassionate believers on the other side of the world provide a well in his village. Now, he knows Christians care about him. Not only does he have the water he needs, he’s also more open to the Gospel.
You can make a difference like that in the life of one person today for just $15. Your gift will provide him or her clean water for an entire year!
Clean water may seem like a simple gift, but it’s one of the most powerful gifts you can give. And it’s one of the best ways you can choose to transform a life through the World Help Gifts catalog this Christmas.
