About LIFE Outreach International | Water for LIFE Projects
According to LIFE Outreach International, “We can stop the cycle of death with each new water well we drill and build. Everyone’s health, especially the children’s, improves immediately. Villages become more productive, and children – especially girls – who used to spend their days fetching water can now go to school. The entire future looks more productive and becomes better because the drinking water is clean and safe.”
This is the 14th year of Water for LIFE Projects. With more than 3700 water wells now in use, each well serves an average of 1000 villagers. That means more than 3.7 million people now have clean water. Visit them online at: http://lifetoday.org/outreaches/water-for-life
About Bethany Hamilton
She has become a source of inspiration to millions through her story of faith, determination, and hope. At the age of thirteen, on October 31, 2003, Bethany was attacked by a 14-foot tiger shark while surfing off Kauai’s North Shore. The attack left Bethany with a severed left arm.
Miraculously, just one month after the attack, Bethany returned to the water to continue pursuing her goal to become a professional surfer. In October 2004, Bethany shared her life story in her autobiography entitled Soul Surfer. In 2007, Bethany realized her dream and turned pro.
Today, she is married to Christian youth minister, Adam Dirks. She continues to strive to be the best at whatever God calls her to do. Visit her online at: http://bethanyhamilton.com
