Thankful 30: Day 7–Clean Water

DSC_0797-003

I joined (belatedly) Emily’s* 30 Day Challenge:

I’m challenging myself to post a picture every day during the month of November (30 Days To Be Thankful For) and to add a caption as to why I am thankful.

Day 7, November 7

God, I’m thankful that I have clean, safe water for

drinking,

washing,

bathing,

and cooking.

Every day over 4,000 children are dying of water-related diseases such as cholera and typhoid that are easily preventable. Many more are suffering sickness, diarrhea and acute stomach pains – illnesses that stop children going to school and growing up into healthy adults.  Compassion

Consider giving a gift to Compassion that will help provide a well for those who don’t have a source of safe water.
