Message

I am turning 30 years old on June 20!! I have been praying and asking God to help me live for Him and not for myself. As I have been thinking about my 30th birthday and ways I could celebrate it, I came across mygfa.org and quickly felt like this could be a perfect way to celebrate my 30th birthday. Through books like "Revolution in World Mission," "Radical," "Crazy Love,""Kisses From Katie" and " "No Longer a Slum Dog," God has been opening my eyes to see how much excess we live with and how the vast majority of the world is in dire need of basic necessities. My heart aches to do more, but I so often choose to live in trivial ways by pouring more into myself. God is doing a beautiful transformation by changing this heart of mine to live for Him and not for myself. Will you partner with me to help me reach my goal of raising 30 bio-sand water filters for my 30th birthday? Any amount goes towards the goal: $5, $10...whatever you want to give. And 100% of it goes to making the bio-sand water filters!

About BioSand
Water Filters

Disease-ridden water is a leading cause of sickness and death in Asia, especially among children. However, BioSand water filters can greatly address this problem.

  • BioSand Water filters are made from concrete and sand, meaning they're easy to construct.
  • They work on any kind of water—whether from wells, ponds, rivers or rain. This means families can use the closest water source and make it safe to drink.
  • BioSand Water filters are effective at removing dirt, worms, bacteria, and most viruses from water sources.

Your donation will support Gospel for Asia's BioSand Water filter distribution. For every $30 GFA can produce a single filter that will be given to a family in need. A single filter can often serve the needs of multiple families.

Mindy, your thirst for God's spirit and your grasp of his unending love for you has blessed my life in more ways than you know. And even though we don't get to see a lot of each other, I still think of you and one of my best friends. I hope you reach your goal. ~Me~
