My journey with Hope Water started in 2016. 2021 will be my 6th year of being in mission to bring clean water wells to Sierra Leone Africa. We provide hope to communities – one clean water well at time. We run, walk, sweat, build community and relationships all for the purpose of introducing people to God through the love of Jesus Christ. Every step we take is a simple reminder that we do this for the people who need our help.

As a team we have been able to raise enough money these past 5 years to fund 65 wells which has impacted the lives of over 49,000 people. Water is the most basic necessity of life; the lack of it is standing between millions of people and their health, safety and the opportunity to unlock their true potential. Access to clean water is foundational to the development of any community. It restores hope and unlocks potential, bringing life back to a community.
