every christmas since 2010, we have participated in something called advent conspiracy. advent conspiracy is a movement designed to help us all slow down and experience a christmas worth remembering. but doing this means doing things a little differently; a little creatively.
advent conspiracy helps us to:
- worship fully
- spend less
- give more
- love all
during the christmas season, we spend less on gifts and stuff we don’t really need, and we give what we saved to help drill clean drinking water wells in countries where people do not have access to clean water. this helps us put our focus on worshipping God and loving others with all we have.
we have partnered with living water, a great organization that is doing incredible work, completing over 11,000 projects in 24 countires.
the turning point has raised over $45,000 to help bring water to those in need. through God’s grace, and our members’ generosity, we have been able to fund the following projects:
- 3 rehabed wells in haiti
- 3 rehabed wells in liberia
- 1 well in ghana
- 1 well in india
- 1 well in el salvador
we were blessed to be able to send twelve of our members to actually help with the drilling of the well in el salvador in december of 2011.
