Living Waters for the World Update

Puerta del Cielo Congregation

 

It's been 4-1/2 years since our water mission "traveling team" last visited the Yucatan.  Join us at 6:00 pm on Wednesday, June 14th for an update on how our partners in Xoy, San Diego Buenavista, and Opichen are doing.  You'll also meet our new partner, Mission Puerta del Cielo (Door of Heaven) in Xculoc, Campeche, Mexico.  Dinner will be served in the Fellowship Hall and we'll project several new pictures.  We'll also begin our plans to return to Xculoc whenever they are able to complete the building for their new water plant.  The meeting is for anyone who may want to be a part of the "traveling team" and for all who just like being a part of the "stay at home" team.

 

 

Thanks Again FPC!

living waters for the worldDear Members of First Presbyterian Church, Madisonville, KY,

Thank you for your recent gift of $600.00 to the Yucatan Network of Living waters for the World (LWW).  We also appreciate your additional amounts of $200.00 each specifically for:
     Xoy, Yucatan, Mexico - Project #885
     San Diego Buenavista, Yucatan, Mexico - Project #1113
     Opichen, Yucatan, Mexico - Project #1199

Your generosity will help children, women, and men have the clean water they need to stay healthy.  When children are healthy they can go to school.  When adults are healthy they can earn a living.  When a family is healthy, lives are transformed.  What a tremendous gift you have given!

Thank You FPC!

"Traveling" Team Prepares for Opichen

Opichen Crew

Final preparations are being made by the 15 members of our "traveling" team.  Final preparations are also being made by our partners in Opichen, Yucatan, Mexico.  We will be traveling to the Yucatan on October 6th, working through the following week, and then returning home on October 14th. This is our third water purification plant installation.  We’ve installed new plants in Xoy and San Diego Buenavista, and have rehabilitated an older plant in Peto.  Please pray for good and timely travel, along with handling whatever surprises arise.  One thing that comes with experience is realizing there will be surprises.  Pray, too, for our friends there in Opichen.  When we will leave after a week; they will be the operators of a new system that will hopefully bring safe water and its health benefits to their community for a generation.

A Letter from San Diego Buena Vista

SDBV Water CelebrationDear brothers, the holy people of God in Kentucky, United States, receive a cordial greeting from the Getsemani Presbyterian Church of San Diego Buena Vista.

By this means, as a Church, we express our heartfelt gratitude to each one of you, brothers and sisters, who with great love for Christ were willing to give us, without deserving, their resources and support these months, especially for the Water Purification Plant and also for the drilling of the well and its equipment for the extraction of water. Thankful we are before our Great God for all of you and we implore our Lord to grant you more and more blessing, grace, strength, and passion for the work of Christ.  THANK YOU!

We recognize once again in our lives, the demonstration of the grace of God through you and this example also encourages us to give of grace what we have received of grace.  Neighbors and other people who previously could not have access to purified water, today is a reality.  And also, God has opened many opportunities for us among water customers, to lead them to Christ.  To God be the glory!

We said goodbye to each other, hoping to see each other again, God willing.  May the peace, love, and faith of God the Father and of our Lord Jesus Christ be always with you.

Respectfully,

Respectable Consistory
