Give the gift of water

Synod of Living Waters encourages alternative gifts this Christmas

December 20, 2010


For Presbyterians rushing to find last-minute Christmas gifts, there’s a better option than fighting the crowds and heading out to the nearest big-box store.

Living Waters for the World, a mission resource of the Synod of Living Waters, will provide an e-card for each donation made as an alternative gift for a family member or friend. LWW trains and equips mission teams to share clean, sustainable water to communities in need around the world and in the Appalachian United States.

When you make a donation to LWW in the name of someone on your gift list, they’ll get a personalized e-card from LWW, explaining how the gift made in their honor helps bring clean water to those who need it.

  1. Our church supports both MMM and LWW. The two missions use different approaches, each of which is valid. LWW trains church mission teams in how to work with local groups in points of need to install systems that treat available sources of water. Over a thousand people have taken its training, and more than 300 systems installed, each of which is capable of serving upwards of 300 people, in more than 20 nations. Great attention is paid to sustainability so that the system does not quickly become obsolete.

  2. My wife and I donate to Marion Medical Mission. I hope this LWW is as efficient as MMM. Clean water is going to be the new 'oil' resource someday. Paul
