Pastor DeBartolo and his wife, Karen, have traveled to Charleston for the Annual NALC Convocation and to volunteer at the home office of Water Missions International. Donations toward the $30 Thousand for 30 Years" Campaign have been coming in and we're over $25,500, but need your help to reach the final goal! You can help us NOW! Won't you please GIVE to help bring safe water to those in need and save the lives of thousands of children and families? $10 can give water to a child for life!
If you're looking for a way to make a difference around the world, we'd appreciate the help! The Living Water™ Treatment Systems developed by Water Missions, International, each capable of providing safe water for 5,000 people, are ready to be placed in over 48 countries. These units cost about $30,000 each and will provide 10,000 gallons of pure water daily for over 20 years. That is a lifetime of fresh, clean water for a village!As you probably know, safe water and shelter are the most important needs, not only after a disaster, but for sustenance. Without access to safe water, disease spreads quickly and compounds the health issues and mortality rate for children.

This year's 2014 NALC(North American Lutheran Church) Convocation, CORE Convocation, the Theological Conference, and Women of the NALC all take place Monday, July 21 through Friday, July 25, at The Citadel in Charleston, SC.____________________
“Standing With...to Withstand” is the theme for the
2014 Convocation of the North AmericanLutheran
Church. The theme is based on Ephesians 6:10-20,
where St. Paul describes the whole armor of God, encouraging followers of Jesus to “put on the whole
armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in
the evil day....” The Convocation will focus on the persecution of Christians throughout the world, and
our hope to “stand with” these disciples as they
witness to the Gospel of Jesus Christ, in spite of
opposition and, in some places, suffering.
