In their most recent newsletter, Shining A Light gave a big Thank You to Hope Reformed Church for their gift of love and support.  See an exerpt from their newsletter below:


“This month our ladies received an amazing gift, the gift of clean water! Hope Reformed Church in Kalamazoo, MI, donated 25 Sawyer Water Filters to our organization and after a few days of seminars on clean water and the health benefits we are happy to report that all of

the women purchased the filters at a very reasonable cost.


The reason for their purchase is so that they may take ownership and see the value of their purchase, which will increase the use of the filters in their home.We spent two days learning about bacteria, disease and the health benefits to themselves and their children.

The women also discovered the savings they would receive each year in less doctor visits because of the water filters. All 15 of our ladies now have clean, safe drinking water in each of their homes.”
