March 22nd is acknowledged as World Water Day. The day brings into focus the need for clean water the world
over and how the lack of clean water impacts the daily life of over 900 million people.
After returning from The Presbyterian Women’s 2013 Mission Experience to Appalachia, Sherry Hardwick brought
to the attention of our Presbyterian Women, Living Waters of The World. During her time in Appalachia Sherry
was introduced to Living Waters and their mission worldwide. The importance of clean water and how it effects
health, hygiene , and spiritual education of those in need within the United Sates and those globally were an
important part of her Mission trip. Because of her experience, the Presbyterian Women Board Voted to add Living
Waters To our Mission Outreach, 2013-2014.
As part of that commitment PW had called upon Katy BeDunnah to be a part of our “Educating our Congregation”
goal. Ms. BeDunnah was a volunteer for Living Waters for The World from 2002 until 2013. Ms. BeDunnah will
share Living Waters work in remote areas of our country and those globally. Her passion is being able to provide
the gift of clean water for drinking, cooking, and taking care of babies to communities throughout the world. She will speak at
forth coming Worship Services, Praise and Traditional. She will give a presentation to The Outreach Committee’s April meeting
and other committees and or groups that will be a part of our goal.
Our hope is with congregation education, information provided by a knowledgeable speaker and our own Presbyterian Church
(USA) Living Waters literature we will become a part of giving and sharing resources to this life changing organization.
