“I lift my eyes to the mountains – where does my help come from?  My help comes from the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth. “   PSALM 121:1-2

That verse was continuously on my mind, beginning at midnight as we headed up the final climb to the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro.

The Summer of 2013 was my first direct experience with Child Legacy International.  I went to Malawi to visit the Child Legacy site and worked with a group of friends to repair water wells in nearby villages.

I saw the impacts of polluted water and the burden of retrieving water from alternate sources.  I experienced the joy and gratitude of the people of a Malawian village when water flowed again from a well that hadn’t been working for years. I knew then my commitment to help was the right decision.
Reaching the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro was the end of that excursion to Africa, but the beginning of my support for the on-going work to bring clean water to the people of Malawi through Child Legacy International.  In February of 2019, I return to the mountains and pursue a series of summits in Ecuador peaking at a final summit over 20,000 feet – even higher than Mount Kilimanjaro, all for the purpose of bringing awareness and support for clean water to people in need. The well repair teams will also bring the Gospel to the people of these villages. This is the Clean Water Climb.

I invite you to join me in supporting Child Legacy International’s work to repair water wells in Malawi, helping to stop water borne illness that comes from polluted water and relieving the burden that comes from long treks to alternate water sources.  Your contributions, prayers and support are appreciated.
