“Catching Rain”…How YOU Helped Give Children Daily Water!
Bear and I recently made the 2.5 hours journey from our village, Juapong to our new place in the capital, Accra. The move, the new sounds, new people, and new ministry have me pretty full and apparently Bear too!
The real blessings have come in relationships. For the past 2.5 years I have watched the daycare centre in front of my old apartment in Juapong catch rainwater via a method called “Rain Harvesting.” (Check out My YouTube video “ to see how; “Catching Rain” at: https://youtu.be/jEC-ZG0AFJw)
Meaning whenever it rains they catch it in large containers. Then use the rainwater for drinking, cooking during lunch time and sometimes even bathing some of the children. Quite creative, but not always reliable particularly during Ghana’s Dry Season when temperatures can soar 99 degrees and beyond!
So, I’m Excited to share that ALL who partner in this ministry now partner with Christ Kinder Child Development Centre in helping 174 Community Children have constant daily running water!
HOW ARE YOU PARTNERS? When I moved from Juapong to Accra, rather than trying to figure out how to “drag” my Poly Tank down the road to the new apartment, it was laid on my heart for this ministry to donate the Poly Tank and Stand to the children of Christ Kinder. The Centre Owner, Mr. Kafui Azimah and staff were so overwhelmed they haven’t stopped sharing their Thanks! (Please go the Thank You letter to Supporters at: www.RovaughnaRichardson.com > Projects).
Proverbs 3:27-28; “Do not withhold good from those to whom it is due, when it is your power to act. Do not say to your neighbor. ‘Come back tomorrow and I’ll give it to you’-when you already have it with you.’”
That means if you’re supporting this ministry, your arms are now also stretching to give running water to almost 200 Children!
Christ Kinder’s creativity is an example of using natural resources toward sustainability.
Through your generosity we’re able to spread God’s Love even WIDER and give them a “Hand Up”!!!:) Thank YOU!
