  Our New Mission Tool

Each year when we go into foreign areas to spread the Gospel we have mission tools at our disposal to help us show the love of Christ to the people in towns and villages.  Some of our missions are medical in nature and we offer medical care, eye care and dental services.  In India for the last several years we have used traditional dresses called “Saris” to give to widows and other women of the lower caste system in order to have an opportunity to share the good news of Jesus with them.

In the last several months we have discovered another tool to help us share God’s love.  This tool is called the LIFE STRAW.  Where we have been going into villages and helping a segment of the population in their time of need, we now have an opportunity to go into a village and help everyone we come in contact with.

The LIFE STRAW is a personal water filtering system that will last, under normal usage, for one year.  Each LIFE STRAW will filter approximately 266 liters of water which is the average amount of water used by an individual during the span of a year.  You can literally put the LIFE STRAW in a puddle of muddy water and drink the water through the straw with the assurance that 99% of the bad bacteria is being filtered away.

With the government of India opening its arms to those of us who are helping these villages with personal hygiene training and other social needs, this product is a perfect fit for us.  We are starting now to raise funds to purchase as many LIFE STRAWS as possible.  Each straw will cost us $10.00 and we have already received a $1,000.00 gift from 1 individual in the association to start our order.

We are asking our churches to begin taking action now to help us with this project.  Through special offerings, youth projects and Sunday promotions you can help us make a difference in the lives of people in a very thirsty land.  We can present them with a device for pure water and also share with them about the living water of Jesus.  You can go on-line to our website and donate through the LIFE STRAW category on the donation page or send your gift to LeFlore Baptist Association, 106 Flanagan, Suite A, Poteau, Ok 74953
