We write today as representatives of Living Waters for the World (LWW) to engage your assistance in sharing the Thirst For Life music video with the youth of your churches.
This song, written to support LWW, and subsequently recorded by YouTube “super group” Cimorelli with an accompanying video showing our work in Cuba, has been something of a sensation, already surpassing 100,000 views.
What is striking are the more than 800 comments on the video, almost all by young people.
With your help and those of your pastors, we have an opportunity to engage our PCUSA youth to share the video, thereby raising awareness of Living Waters for the World and serving as an example of how to be the church in this time and place. Without question, more clean water will flow as a result and the song will touch many more lives.
Living Waters for the World has been a grass-roots story, having trained church teams from virtually every Presbytery in the denomination, resulting in over 900 water system installations in 25 nations, bringing clean water to hundreds of thousands. For many in the communities we serve, Presbyterians are considered the “water people”, bringing health, hope and Christ’s love in a tangible way.
Thank you for sharing this letter with your pastors so that this video may be shared with their youth with a call to action to share this beautiful song of Christ’s love of living water for our bodies and our souls.
Should you have any questions, please let us know, or contact LWW Executive Director Steve Young, copied above: 615-268-9022.
Let Clean Water Flow!
