When I was 18, I spent two months in Haiti helping to build a medical clinic. One of the first things I did when I got home was to go to our kitchen faucet and marvel at the clean water flowing out of it. Clean water is something we generally take for granted…unless we don’t have it.
This Thanksgiving, I encourage you and your loved ones to thank our Creator for our fresh water supply. As you do that, will you also remember our neighbours at Shoal Lake 40 First Nation who do not share that same privilege? You might want to thank them as well. Mention it in prayer, church signs, casual conversation, etc. Don’t worry, God will tell you how to do it.
