The Board of World Mission’s Blessings Flow Project has provided clean water to over 900 families in the La Moskitia region of Honduras through the distribution of household water filters. Through a partnership with local leaders and an organization called One Atta Time, which provides five-gallon buckets, EPA-approved water filters, and assessments of health and water quality, we have blessed every family in the villages of Tumtum Tara and Warunta, with plans to serve three additional communities (Kuhrpa, Pakwi, and Río Plátano) in the first stage of the project. As of early 2024, generous donors have already funded filters for every family in each of these five villages, as well as an additional 1,200 households, which means that every gift made from this point on will allow us to expand the project! As more communities are identified and filters are distributed, we will communicate the progress of this effort. THANK YOU for contributing to this project and letting the Blessings (over)Flow!

This project has already touched the hearts of many North American Moravians, who have assembled water filters, contributed to joyful noise offerings, and welcomed BWM staff members into their congregations to share about the project. We are deeply grateful to all who have engaged with this effort. 

Your $100 donation covers the cost of purchasing the filter, shipping costs to get it in country, the purchase of the bucket, visits by BWM and One Atta Time staff to do health assessments, filter distribution, training on how to use and maintain the filter, and a follow-up visit to measure impact and ensure continued proper usage. That’s a lot of value to give EVERY family in these communities a decade or more of clean water to limit days of work and school lost to the effects of water-borne illnesses!

Even more important, this is a project carried out jointly by the leadership of the two Moravian Church bodies in Honduras. The church, which split more than 25 years ago, is finding ways to work together in mission that transcend their historical division. This display of unity is a tremendous witness to these communities.
