Aside...Please pardon my absence in the blogosphere. I've been traveling, working, and not sleeping. I am back now, and I've missed you all! Now on to Spiritual Sunday....

As you know I have no problem shamelessly plugging my place of worship, Impact Church. This time it's for a much greater cause. The church has partnered with Blood:Water Mission, a 501(c)3, in an effort to bring water to Africa. Millions of Africans are losing their lives because they don't have access to clean water. The cost of one well ($4500) can provide water for a village of 1000 people. If we all contribute a little, we can make a big difference!

Impact's worship team has produced a song, "Thirst No More"- featuring Isaac Carree of Men Of Standard, which can be downloaded for $1. 100% of the proceeds will benefit Blood:Water Mission. Click here to purchase the MP3 for $1 and help bring water to people in need in Africa and click here for more information about Blood: Water Mission. Please spread the word!

Have missed you, Joan. Hope you get some sleep soon - it's hard to function without that. I can't play the video right now, as we're in a hotel (yay for vacation 30 minutes from home!) and my boys are sleeping 5 feet away. But I will be back.

That's where you've been!! LOL

What a great cause!! We have missionaries in Africa. In fact, they planted a Calvary Chapel in Entebbe. It's amazing how the Lord is working in so many areas there!!

Nice video. I too am glad you are back...I missed you lots!

I've missed you too girl! The song is wonderful. I was actually thinking a lot about this kind of thing when my son got hurt last week. We are so blessed to be able to run to the sink to wash our little ones up. We have clean towels to hold on their wounds. We can take a few steps to the freezer for a special boo boo ice pack & popsicle...made my heart sad for those moms who don't have that opportunity to care for their kids that way...

I have been meaning to check out Impact Church. I follow the pastor on twitter, he is a Morehouse brother and I occasionally read his blog too. Great cause.

Great cause, actually my neighbor is doing something similar. So easy to take for granted the little things we enjoy sometimes.

Welcome back!

It looks like you have a wonderful church!

This sounds like a great cause and a great church! So happy you are back.

This sounds like a great cause. I have so many things I want to do when my kids aren't sucking my wallet dry with daycare costs. I can't WAIT to spend on what I WANT instead of all necessities. :(
