Toilet for Viello

For many of us, the first thing we do every morning when we get up, and the last thing we do right before we fall asleep is go to the bathroom. Have you ever paused to thank God for your toilet. Toilets really are a gift from God.

Can you imagine life without a toilet? Honestly, I can’t.

What if you had the opportunity to provide a toilet for someone who doesn’t have a toilet?

What if you could provide a toilet for an entire village?

We have the opportunity to do just that for our village in Haiti. Viello is in need of toilet facilities. We’re going to provide them with toilet facilities.

This is an important step in reaching one of the "8 Benchmarks" that Disciple's Village is working towards and that we are partnering with them to work towards in transforming the village of Viello.

Our goal is is to raise $475 in the next 2 weeks. If we raise more than $475 it will go to the next Viello project.

This will purchase the materials to build the toilet. Residents of Viello will be digging the hole for the toilet as well as carrying all the materials up the mountain (by "carry" I mean "hand-carry" cinder blocks, rebar, all building materials up the mountain...).

There are two ways you can contribute to this project. You can give on Sunday or you can give online. Just make sure to mark your gift with "toilet." 

To quote Karen Nichols, this is a "no brainer" for us. Let's be generous.
