The Sera Family

I have been a part of Hope Water for over 5 years. It has been such a gift to be a part of this amazing community of people who are running, biking, and swimming to change people’s lives.
One of the most impactful part of being in this ministry is praying about how to be an example for my children to know what it means to live out the command to “Love God and Love others”.
Even though myself , Mark and our children have never had physical contact with the beautiful Pokot people, I have seen their hearts of love and care for these beautiful people. We often talk about “not wasting water” in the shower, or with the faucet...because it’s a precious gift that the Pokot do not take for granted. Most recently in our trip to the upper Peninsula, Matthew went to a hand pump water well, and said “hey mom, isn’t this what the Pokot kids use!” It is awesome that they understand why we run!
We are SO grateful for each of you that have contributed to this ministry through prayer, financial gifts, and encouragement...it has greatly benefited the Pokot with new water wells and the opportunity to receive education and know how loved they are by Jesus.
Thank you so much for taking time to read this!
