2013 Walk for Water

2013 Walk for Water By Carol & Lew Hudgins On October 20th, our third WALK FOR WATER was held at Olustee Park in front of the Columbia County Courthouse and the beautiful Lake DeSoto, with its perfect walking trail. We had a wonderful turnout from various denominations across Suwannee and Columbia counties in N Central Florida. Youth groups, seniors, children, young families, health care professionals and business people teamed up for Persecution Project Foundation to provide fresh, clean water in the Nuba Mountain Well Project. The people of the Nuba are being ravaged by war with ethnic cleansing and genocide, and they pay a dear price ...

Bringing Forth Water from a Boat

Bringing Forth Water from a Boat From the Mailbox From Tony C. “I recently went to see one of my favorite authors, Henry Blackaby (Experiencing God). He and his son delivered a challenging message about simple math being the fine-tuning to a Christian life. It was about subtraction and addition. They said we all need to subtract or add something to our life to gain Christ. I was provoked to ask God about this, and He moved me into a deep inspection of the passions of my life. About the same time-frame, I picked up a book called Radical, by David Platt. In the book, David talks about the ...

A Selfless Sweet Sixteen

A Selfless Sweet Sixteen By Kendra (Loyal's mom) Our birthdays have always been quiet events. For every birthday that has come along each year, we have simply chosen to celebrate as a family. But this year was Loyal's sweet sixteen, and her friend Olivia thought we should have a big celebration. Well, that made sense to us, and so we planned. I suppose it was a typical party - good food, teens, games and laughter, with brownies and ice cream to top it off. However, this birthday still held a unique touch. Instead of presents, Loyal asked each of her guests to bring a gift ...

God Opens Doors

God Opens Doors By Chelsea P. Although my family has supported PPF for several years, it wasn’t until last year that I began to read about the 100 Wells Campaign. I live in one of the rainiest states in the U.S., so no one worries about not having enough water to drink. I’ve never wondered where my next meal will come from or lacked clothing or a roof over my head. When I learned that people in Sudan were not only suffering from extreme persecution, but that they also lacked basic necessities, my heart felt torn. I had always known people around the world suffered ...

62 Wells and Counting!

62 Wells and Counting! Persecution Project Foundation is feverishly working to provide a basic water canopy for the population in Jaac. The 100 Wells Campaign has drilled 62 clean water wells in Jaac to date, with plans to complete 100 by the end of 2010. But this aggessive goal is totally dependent on God's grace working through the generosity of thousands of Christians in America.

But, most importantly, many souls are ...

Christians Gather in the “Heart of Dixie” to Support PPF

Christians Gather in the “Heart of Dixie” to Support PPF Enterprise, Alabama, is a unique town, because it's the only municipality in the world with a monument dedicated to a pest. More than 100 years ago, the boll weevil destroyed much of the area's cotton crop and forced farmers to diversify by planting other plants - including peanuts, which became a new cash crop. In gratitude for the unexpected blessing of this little bug, citizens of Enterprise built a monument in the center of town as a reminder that good things can come from unexpected places.   Matt Chancey presenting the PPF ministry at the 100 Wells fundraiser.   [caption id="attachment_81" align="alignnone" width="720" caption="Matt ...

Many Members, One Body

Many Members, One Body By Ed Lyons "For as the body is one and has many members, but all the members of that one body, being many, are one body, so also  is Christ. Now you are the body of Christ, and members individually." - 1 Corinthians 12:12, 17 By its very name, a divine appointment is when an individual or a group of individuals meet one another not by chance, but by an orchestration of events governed by our heavenly Father. We've all experienced divine appointments at some juncture in our lives. When we met our spouses, when we found the perfect job, and even when ...

Gift of Water at Christmas

Gift of Water at Christmas January 11, 2010 Dear Friends, Each year for Christmas, I give my family's "gifts" to a ministry that would be of interest to each one. There are 26 of us, and when we get together, I tell them where their gift went, and give them some literature about that project and ministry. This year, the gifts for the married men (6 plus my husband who lives in heaven) were sent to PPF for the well project. I said I knew how they would feel if they couldn't even provide safe water for their families, then each one (all 24 who were there) received ...
