Beautiful Day to Get Water

We have a sign in our house that says, “Today is a Beautiful Day.” It’s simple, but it’s a good reminder for the days I stress about the things that don’t matter. Today is a gift from God. Today is a beautiful day. For one village in Zambia, today truly is a beautiful day. They just received a brand new well that will provide clean water for years to come, and we had the honor…

MC Hammer Wally and Prayer

As I travel around Zambia with Blood Water meeting these amazing families, I am struck by how much better my prayer life is. I find myself almost in a constant state of prayer. I pray about big things, little things, and things I would not think to pray about back in the U.S. So, I wondered why this is? Why do I pray more and why do I pray differently in Zambia.

Shake it Like a Polaroid

On the past several trips to Africa with Blood Water we have noticed people, especially the kids, love to see what they look like on our cameras or phones after we take their picture. This year we thought it would be cool to be able to leave them with a little family photo. The dance, thanks to OutKast and the Polaroid picture song, was an exhausting bonus. Don't forget to vote on who dances better!…

The people are so kind and filled with joy amidst some really tough circumstances.  My Zambian friend,…

Photo Op 4-21-15 featured image

Photo Op is where Wally confiscates all of our phones and we're held accountable for the last photo we took. Which photo do you like the best? Top left: Usually Siri gets pretty close with Bekah's reminders, but she has no idea what this first one is supposed to be. Top right: Wally took this picture of the audio board in our studio. It appears as if the Finger Nail bandit has left his, or her, calling card again. Gross.…

Bart MercyMe

MercyMe has a really cool new music video for "Flawless" that you can only see here. In the video, Bart admits that he's sometimes haunted by his past. He shares  with us the past "flaws" he's had to learn how to handle. We also talk about what it's like to have paint thrown in your eye and to be completely smothered by paint.   Make sure you catch the Behind The Scenes video too.
