When the poor and needy seek water, and there is none, and their tongue is parched with thirst, the LORD will answer them.  Isaiah 41:17

LHPC began a mission initiative with Living Waters for the World in 2009 and has completed our first installation of our Clean Water system in July 2010 in the small community of San Agustin Acasaguatlan, Guatemala.

LHPC's commitment to the Living Water program is a church wide mission program, and offers opportunities for members to participate in funding the project as well as in training and implementing "clean water" installations in Guatemala and other possible locations.

Every year more than 3 million people die from water-related illness. Most are infants and children.

We are called to:

PROVIDE affordable clean-water systems for people in all parts of the world. Polluted drinking water is a major cause of disease and death in the developing world. In many cases clean bottled water is available, but the price is beyond the means of many. Water must be both clean and affordable.

PARTNER with community organizations to be responsible for the installation, operation and maintenance of the clean water system. Partnerships with local churches and organizations lie at the heart of this project. Without this the effectiveness of the hardware is significantly diminished.

ASSIST in the development of health and hygiene education that stimulates the demand for the understanding of the benefits of clean water. Education of the local community is crucial to the ultimate success of the purification system. Living waters for the World seeks to see that its partners install no treatment hardware without paying equal attention to the education of the community that will be using the clean water."

If you’re interested in getting involved, we would love to have you!  Contact our Missions Team for more information. 

We have raised about 80% of the funds needed for a second installation!  Your prayers, donations, and gifts of time and talent are needed for clean water.
