On Friday, June 19, we had our follow-up meeting with our second group of Water Women. They have been using the Water with Blessing filters and buckets for the past three months. This meeting was a time for faith-sharing from the Gospel of John 8:4-26 (the woman at the well), their experiences of using the buckets and filters, with whom they are sharing the purified water, and their difficulties. It was amazing to listen to their sharing, especially how grateful they are for the filters and buckets for they see how their children and their neighbors do not have the sicknesses they had before, such as typhoid and cholera, because of using dirty, unclean water.
We then gave them new filter covers that were made by our dear Felician Sisters in the Presentation of the Blessed Virgin Mary Central Convent, Livonia, MI. We thank you our dear sisters for sharing in the Water with Blessing project here in Haiti.
