Today we started filters. There is something about seeing people learn how to get clean water that makes you step back and think. Do I ever have to worry about getting sick from my water? Do I ever have to make sure the water I am drinking is clean? While these amazing people of Mellier learn how to make their water healthier for drinking, we learned how to appreciate every sip of water we have. Because somewhere, another one of God’s children is wondering if their water is safe to drink. They may not even know their water is making them sick. Somewhere, another seventeen year old girl spends her day walking to the well just to provide water for her family. We’ve learned many things about water and what’s in it, but more than that, we are learning that water truly is life. And life is good.
