“I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink…” Matthew 25:35
It has been a blessing to be a part of this ministry, and it is a great joy to connect our family and friends with our neighbors in Malawi by meeting their need for clean water. We have had the privilege of working with Mike Navolio and the Clean Water Climb for over 3 years! The mission of this organization captured our hearts early on and God led us to fundraise as a family. I [Kristen] am the Clean Water Climb Marketing / Fundraising Coordinator, while Clayton is now an Associate Area Director of Short-Term Mission Trips for East-West Ministries (officed locally and leading trips around the world). He climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro in 2015 and remains an Advocate for the Clean Water Climb. We are fundraising to bring clean water to our neighbors in Malawi for the fourth year in a row!
Clayton and I had the privilege of traveling to Malawi in 2014, and it changed our lives. Now, we connect our family and friends to our new friends in Malawi, who have needs that we can easily meet. It all starts with clean water and the Good News of Jesus Christ, which open doors of opportunities to our neighbors in Malawi.
When it comes to water well repair, your donations make a huge impact on the lives of people in Malawi. For each dollar donated, approximately 1-2 people will receive clean water for 5-10 years! $1,250 provides an entire village of approximately 2,000 people with clean water! As you can see, your donation becomes more than just a drop in the bucket.
A little about us … We desire nothing more than to live our lives serving God and His people, while sharing His great love with others. We have been happily married for more than 7 years, with two energetic and bright children: Hunter (5) and Anna (4). Our kids are mini-fundraisers for clean water.
Clayton is working on his second Master’s Degree at Grace School of Theology. He is also the Founder and Director of T3 Mentors Inc., a local non-profit organization. I have the privilege of substitute teaching at Son Kids Christian Preschool at Faith Bible Church, where I also volunteer with the Cubbies (preschool) Awana program. And, we have been blessed to sponsor 8 children through Compassion International in 3 countries around the world – Kenya, Burkina Faso, and Honduras. Serving God’s people and working with children are very important in our lives.
Please pray and consider how God is leading you to help our neighbors in Malawi. Could you donate, fundraise, climb a mountain, or offer your assistance in another way? Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
