Can you imagine

having no choice but to drink water from a pond where an animal just died? In the cover feature, “Stored There By God,” read about this real dilemma for families in Bulanda village, Zambia—just one example among millions of no-win scenarios for those without clean water in the developing world. It might make you queasy, but the rest of the story gets better. Kari Costanza details World Vision’s efforts to bring clean water to rural Zambia, including Bulanda (hint: read all the way to the end!).

Also in this issue, take a look back at two decades of World Vision’s water work in West Africa, which attracted committed partners like Dave and Dana Dornsife. And don’t miss our guide to help you praise and pray for what God is doing in thirsty communities. This content is designed to engage your mind, heart, and spirit!
