Ten Days!

The Clovis Water Walk is only ten days away!  Wow!  We're very excited about it and can't wait to see everyone.  

The water bottles that registrants will receive, courtesy of Taco Box and Clovis Veterinary Clinic, arrived yesterday.  They look great!  Make sure to go ahead and register to reserve yours.  Clovis Bottlers has also donated bottles of water for walkers.  We appreciate our sponsors!

We want to clarify that this is a donation basis.  If your family would like to participate, but cannot do $25 per person, please come out anyway and donate what you feel led to!  This is, of course, a fundraiser.  But it's also about raising awareness about the conditions in many parts of Africa. 

Don't forget to bring a container to haul water in.  Milk jugs or something along those lines would be perfect.  For families with children, a wagon or stroller might come in handy.  Be creative!  In Ethiopia, we saw water hauled on heads, backs, carts, donkeys, and bicycles.

The painting from our last post sold on the same day that the announcement was made!  What an exciting blessing!  That thermometer on the left of the page is inching toward our goal!

This Saturday night, we are having our second Parents Night Out event, in conjunction with Celebration Baptist Church's outreach for the Courageous movie.  The church has tickets available for $7.50 each.  Childcare will be at the church and is $10 each for the first two children and $8 for each additional child.  Preregistration is required.

Thanks for all the support and we hope to see you in Rio Rancho on Saturday night or in Clovis on October 22!
