RUN 4 WATER

Run for what?? 

WATER!!

Yep...sounds strange maybe but it is true. This isn't running for running sake. As is everything Jesus teaches, this is about other people, not ourselves. There are many people in need in our own backyards as well as the other side of the globe. This ministry is specifically about people we likely will never meet...but have the opportunity to impact in ways beyond our imagination...to learn more about TEAM WORLD VISION click here and watch the video below.
