Give The Gift Of Clean Water

“Religion that is pure and undefiled before God, the Father, is this: to care for orphans and widows in their affliction . . . .” (James 1:27)

I have to say that this verse, from the letter of James in the New Testament, is filled with incredible depth and meaning -- especially for those of us who spend our lives in ministry to the less fortunate. The author of the letter, James (who was one of the disciples of Jesus), speaks to the heart of what God desires of humanity: that we care for one another . . . especially for those who cannot care for themselves. And in the ancient world, orphans and widows were among the poorest and most vulnerable people in society. Unfortunately, in many African nations and elsewhere around the world, that is still the case today.

Give The Gift Of Clean Water

There are a lot of references to water throughout the Bible. The above verses are from the Book of Revelation. As I read them, I could not help but think how it might be difficult for many of us -- living in modern cities and towns throughout the United States and elsewhere -- to understand the full intent of what the writer was trying to convey. After all, we live in times when technology and modern inventions provide water for us at the touch of a finger. Such was not the case in the ancient world.

Your support helps build dormitory for 150 students! Young mother feeds her child with help from the Missionaries of Africa

 

If your child asks for bread--will you give them a stone?

When our Lord Jesus spoke these words, He was offering His followers a message of hope . . . telling them that God the Father will care for them as we human beings care for our own children. Now -- as I write this letter to you -- I am hoping we will care for our children as well as God intended us to. Please read on and I will try to explain.

A few days ago, I received a letter from Fr. Bill Moroney -- one of our Missionary of Africa priests now working in Nairobi, Kenya, in East Africa. . . Read More>>

 

Men building well in Tanzania

MOA helps drill water wells in Tanzania

Water can be gathered, or as some would say ‘harvested’, from below by digging or drilling boreholes to pump it up. It can also be harvested from above in those places where the groundwater would be too deep or maybe hardly existing.

Mbeya, in the East African country Tanzania is one of the many places where one often collects it from above, by harvesting the rains of the rainy seasons. Read More>>
