Water, Part 1   2 comments

“You care for the land and water it;
you enrich it abundantly.
The streams of God are filled with water
to provide the people with grain,
for so you have ordained it” (Psalm 65:9).

When it rains, what do you do first?

In Haiti, grab a towel. Not because the water is leaking into your house, but because it’s time for a shower. God supplies water, and Haitians use every last drop. While you’re busy washing your hair, set out buckets to capture the water to use later. Cisterns–large containers–can store the water for you. Still, the water has to be collected and then put into the cistern.

Capturing Water

Capturing Water

Using the water coming off of a roof and falling into the large blue bucket, this man used a five gallon bucket and then poured it into the PBC piping that led to the cistern. Some communities don’t have a cistern. Learn how you can be part of projects that restore cisterns at the Projects page of the Hope for Haiti website.

God provides water, enriching the land, and giving us ways to survive. When it rains, what do you do? Try praising the Lord for the abundance of his goodness.

Bondye, ou fè lapli tonbe an kantite sou latè. Ou ba li fòs ankò, paske li te fin pèdi tout grès li. Sòm 68:9.
