MISSION CAPSULES: Did you know that nearly a billion people around the world do not have access to safe drinking water and improved sanitation? In areas where water is severely limited, Presbyterian World Service & Development and local partners are digging new wells and boreholes, installing water storage tanks at schools and building household latrines. The results are often dramatic: people are able to focus their energy on education, agriculture and income generating activities that have the potential to eradicate poverty. On March 22nd - World Water Day - pray, give and advocate for water justice. A gift of only $30.00 installs a household latrine for improved sanitation.

MORE - How Did God make mothers --

What ingredients are mothers made of?

God makes mothers out of clouds and angel hair and everything nice in the world and one dab of mean!!

They had to get their start from men's bones. Then they mostly used string ... I think!

Why did God give you your mother and not some other mom?

We're related!

God knew she likes me a lot more than other people's mom likes me!

What kind of a little girl was your mom?

My mom has always been my mom and none of that other stuff!

I don't know because I wasn't there but my guess would be pretty bossy!

They say she used to be nice!

Have a good week - MB
