Living Water International (LWI)

Living Water International (LWI)

LWI volunteers demonstrate the love of God by helping communities acquire desperately needed clean water and to experience "living water" - the gospel of Jesus Christ which alone satisfies the deepest thirst. Each year, a team from First Church spends a week in Honduras or Nicaragua helping a community dig a well.

First Church partners with LWI by holding offerings to fund the wells these teams install. Each well costs about $5,000.00. Contact: Al Wassenaar ( ) for more information about upcoming projects.
