Living Waters for the World — a mission program of the Synod of Living Watersthat trains people in the installation, partnership and hygiene of clean water systems — will hold its first ever summer training session of its Clean Water U.  

The first-ever summer session of Clean Water U. will be July 22-26 at Hopewell Camp & Conference Center in Oxford, MS.

Since 2004, more than 800 volunteers representing 13 different denominations and organizations from throughout the United States and 11 countries have participated in the Clean Water U. training program.

The result has been exponential growth of clean water systems in the world — 273 thus far in 20 countries — improving the health of thousands and creating countless life-changing relationships as a result.

The session has been added to the 2009 schedule to accommodate those who have been unable to attend trainings in the spring and fall, particularly students and those in the teaching profession.
