Lemonade and Clean Water

lemonade sale 09I saw some suncrest friends at our softball game last night and the kids told me they were having a lemonade stand today to raise money to bring clean water to African villages through our partner ministry in Liberia.

I wasn’t surprised.  There are children all over our church doing the same thing.  Here is one story a mom sent me last week after one of our children’s ministry events featured this opportunity: 

Brendan, Tommy, Joey, JacobLast night my boys, Brendan and Jacob, attended World Changers and brought their friends Joey and Tommy.  By the end of the night, they were so inspired that they decided to have a lemonade sale as the Walker sisters (another suncrest family) did to raise money for the water filtration systems. 

So today in the hot sun and humidity, they worked for 2 hours selling lemonade to passers-by.  They were awesome. Not only did they have a blast, but also they raised $16. 53.  They were happy to exceed their goal of $5:).

The pictures are from their sale…I love the way our whole church is embracing the need in Liberia!Brendan was the sign man

  1. I would drive out of my way to buy lemonade from kids like that. I pray for their faith to be strengthened as they serve God and others.

  2. Awesome……you know God is smiling down on these youngsters and their unselfish hearts!

  3. Even a disposable camera is a great gift to give. How often do
    you grab for a pen during the day. Since the pencils will have their
    name on them, the child will feel more like using them to practice their writing with.
