The Ripple Effect

1 Missions Team trains,
200 Village Health Workers who reach,
5,000 Villagers in rural communities surrounding Madurai.

Last weekend the missions team at Vineyard had an info table demonstrating our health education materials and fundraiser. On Sunday alone we raised $720! Only $6,280 left to raise. I believe God can make it happen, after all everything belongs to Him.
The team did an amazing job taking our vision and sharing it with others in the church! I can't wait to get everyone to India someday to see the ripple effect of their efforts.

When we tell people that our main ministry is training the trainers they get intimidated. The beauty is how simple our materials are, anyone can teach them! For example here's the hand washing station we demonstrated and plan to teach this summer. 1,000 kids die from diarrhea everyday in India, half of those deaths could be prevented by washing their hands with soap.

We're also teaching the natural refrigerator and solar water purification systems
Low cost, easy to use tools that can save thousands! Can't wait to get to India and see how the health workers respond!



The best part is all of the scriptures we found to back up our materials. Who knew there were instructions from God on how to build a latrine! Check it out Deuteronomy 23:12-14.

Here's a few more pictures:
