There are a few times in your life when you see something so incredible both good and bad that words don't quite say enough. A friend of mine decided after much prayer and reflection to leave the comforts of suburbia and frienships to follow a calling that lead him and his family to one of the most devasted parts of the world, Haiti. Their homebase is in the Dominican Republic, opposite side of the same island, working with locals through EdgeOutreach to provide clean water through a sophisticated yet small filtration system (check out EdgeOutreach.com to see more of their work). Clean water is such a basic ingredient to us in the modern world, but scarce to a lot of people, as I have found out, in places like Haiti and Dominican Republic. Now what little clean water there was in Haiti has all but been eliminated. EdgeOutreach is setting up several small water purifier systems that can serve 10,000 people a day. This is huge to people who have literally nothing. I cannot write enough what life saving work these volunteers and many more are doing in the name that is above all others. Please check out EdgeOutreach.com to see what they are doing and consider donating to help pay for more systems to be installed. Clean water makes such a difference!
