"A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another.
By this everyone will know that you are my disciples if you love one another. " John 13:34-35
NEXT WATER DELIVERY IS SATURDAY, DECEMBER 2nd.
Arrive at Ascension in time to load trucks and leave parking lot by 7:00 a.m.
In the last year, Ascension has collected and delivered nearly 1,000 cases of water to Sandbranch, an unincorporated community 20 miles southeast of downtown Dallas with no running water. About 150 descendants of ex-slaves live here. Until the 1980s, they had wells, but that water got contaminated. All of its residents live below the federal poverty line and do not have clean water for drinking, cooking, or bathing.
The need is so great! We will deliver our donations to the Sandbranch community on Saturday, December 2nd. Please arrive at Ascension in time to load trucks and leave the parking lot by 7:00 a.m. We hope you will participate in this continuing ministry however you can!
