Living water gift from Texans

Abiding Presence Lutheran Church, San Antonio, hoped to raise enough money ($3,500) during Advent so that Water to Thrive could build one well that would provide clean drinking water for 400 people in Ethiopia.

Abiding Presence’s intergenerational effort included children sharing a noisy offering poured into a living water font built by the youth.

When all fundraising was completed and counted, enough was raised for six wells: water for 2,400 people.
