That’s Why I Run: Team World Vision- Clean Water for Children in Africa

john-huddle

Team World Vision Los Angeles Coordinator
I run…because learning about global poverty isn’t enough. In college, I minored in African Studies and chose Swahili as my foreign language, and while that raised my “awareness,” learning about East Africa will never save a single life if it doesn’t pay off in action. I have never been in want for water a single day in my life. Kids in Kenya are dying of diarrhea — one child every 15 seconds dies from a water-related illness. What good is the Gospel if, having received it, I never act? Team World Vision is my opportunity to help save lives in Africa. That’s why I run.

Here’s to you Dave! Multiculturalcookingnetwork.com salutes the benevolent work of Adventures In Life Ministry.  The Co-founder of AIL Dave Miller has provided our readers/fans with authentic reviews and stories from Mexico.  His work in Mexico is a life changing experience for those who serve as missionaries and for those who are served in various cities in Mexico including,  Guadalajara,  Oaxaca and more.  The legacy of Adventures in Life  in Mexico… 17 churches built, 3 parsonages built, 2 Sunday school facilities built, kids and youth camps each year in Ensenada and Oaxaca, regular medical clinics held, a growing agricultural ministry, a local sewing ministry and much more.

If you have ever considered missions work, we suggest the the video Q & A What You Need to Know About Missions which gives incite from long term missionaries from around the world about dos and don’ts of missionary work.  The 20th anniversary was held at the Los Angeles based Oaxacan restaurant, Guelaguetza. 

For the celebration Dave wanted his guests to experience a taste of Oaxaca from Clayudas to Tres Leches.  Feast your eyes on the video below. -Crystal A. Johnson
