Greetings and I hope that all is well.
It appears that Spring is just around the corner. Colors are beginning to appear and birds are singing in the new day. Warm weather is coming to the North West, which means more outdoors to enjoy camping, hiking, fishing, canoeing
and bicycling. Springtime means a lot to us in many different ways. Be sure to pack a WAPI with you wherever you go;
for you'll never know whenever you'll need to use one.
The WAPI program is entering its 10
year and appears to be continuing its upward growth. Just before the end of last year we had folks headed to different parts of the world. Tom Carter and Jim Dunn went to the Dominican Republic and Haiti. They took 100 WAPIs with them to share. As usual, they were very well received. This part of the world people are in a very real need of potable water, something we as westerners sometimes take for granted.
We also had 50 WAPIs taken to Peru with John and Charlotte Marriott while dispensing eyeglasses with their missionary group. Charlotte had some WAPIs left over after her engagement and wasn’t quite sure what to do with them. As it turned out, one of the people she was visiting with already knew what WAPIs were and was excited about taking whatever she had left to share with his neighbors.
Tom Carter of Agua Pura Para El Pueblo took 200 WAPIs and water testing supplies to Sierra Leone, Africa demonstrating to folks there the reason why they were getting sick. Tom also went to two schools to deliver much-needed water filtering systems.
We have been guided to some countries in Western Africa too. Chad, Benin, Togo, Gabon, and Niger.
John and Ruby Stafford took WAPIs to share and were very well accepted. We have been in contact with these countries and are offering WAPIs to them at no cost.
Our WAPIs are getting out to those in need, thanks to so many energetic volunteers. It's truly amazing to stand and watch it all unfold right in front of
It's awesome! As you can see in the photos in this email, the WAPI project works because so many people have given their precious time and effort.
Because of the generosity of so many people, we have been able to offer these life-saving devices to people without any assets. Working with the WAPI project is astounding to see the love people have for others.
Consider getting involved either by donation or by carrying WAPIs on your next mission trip. WAPIs do make a difference and are making an impact around the world. Thank you.
With warm regards,
