Baptist Global Response
Give thanks with us! Becuase of your generous donations surrounding World Water Day we were able to raise about $10,000. This money will provide people with water filters, hand pumps, wells and more so they can enjoy the health and vitality that comes from drinking safe water. Thank you for observing World Water Day with BGR!
Every minute, a child dies from a water-related illness. Pray the world will take notice, and pray that those in wealthy countries will provide more for the poor, making sure those in need have access to safe water.
Approximately 768 million people around the world live without access to potable water, and many suffer from waterborne diseases. Pray that this year, people in prosperous areas will feel compassion toward those in need and give abundantly so the impoverished can enjoy clean, safe water.
The Ebola death toll quickly approaches 5,000 souls in West Africa. Prayer is essential - Christian workers, volunteers and many who do not know Jesus come in contact with this virus daily. Pray for the epidemic to be stopped in its tracks. Pray for orphans who have lost parents, homes, belongings and extended family. Pray for Ebola survivors - many are now ostracized by their communities.
AIDS is the leading cause of infectious deaths around the world. Pray for increased efforts to educate people about this disease and about how it spreads, and pray that education can dispel misconceptions.
