Change A Life Today - Well Done Campaign

There are 328 million people in Africa that lack access to clean, safe water. That is more than the population of the entire United States! You can help change that! We're excited to team up with Jars of Clay today for the "Well Done Campaign" - to help provide clean water for those in need.

In 2005 Jars of Clay had a dream through their "Blood:Water Mission" ministry to build 1000 clean water projects (everything from wells to filtration systems) in Africa. It was a campaign they started with K-LOVE and in the years since, 890 water projects have been funded in built. Today, the goal is to finish the work started in 2005 - fund the remaining 110 projects (each project is approximately $9,000).

To get involved call 800-516-3481 or right here online

Bluetree and Burma

Imagine being in a situation where you could lose your life for being a Christian?  That was the situation the band Bluetree recently found themselves in after they were illegally snuck into Myanmar. 

With passion and tears, Aaron Boyd of Bluetree joined us this week to tell the story of their recent trip with Christian Freedom International to minister to Karen Christians in Myanmar. 

And eight year old girl in a refuge camp begged him not to forget their plight, and he now begs us to pray and consider doing something to help.

To read the account of their trip and the profound effect it had on the band, click here.

Got a Doughnut Story?

The first Friday of June every year is National Doughnut Day!  A day that commemorates the efforts of the Salvation Army, who served doughnuts to soldiers during World War I. 

So what do you think of when it comes to doughnuts?  Do you have a special story or memory associated with doughnuts?
