In September 2011, the Junior Sunday School Class began looking for a project we could complete in a year. From our many different options, we decided to raise money for the Water Fund of Baptist Global Response. (The specific project we worked with provides water filters to more than 500 Myanmar households whose water sources have been compromised by flooding.)

We are a strong, united class of about 12 and excited to be the first in the youth group to do this kind of project. Our class planned and ran the project, with advice from our parents and Sunday school teachers.

We sold baked goods at FBC’s Christkindlmarkt and on Sundays, and sold KOH2RVA bumper stickers. By September 2012 we raised more than $2,000 to help make clean water accessible in five villages in Myanmar.

Editor’s note: Baptist Global Response is a disaster relief and community development organization that works with the Southern Baptist Convention, as well as other partners.
