This Week 5-29-23 - Dive in to Water
WELCOME NEW MEMBERS!
Congratulations to our new Ambassadors and say “hello” to our newest members:
WHO TO KNOW: In light of Memorial Day, and the front-line work military do to support water resilience in off-grid environments, we recognize all those who work in areas of conflict and environmental disasters. See the VeteransWithoutOrders and civil service leaders providing filtration to ensure continuous access to clean water even where existing infrastructure is compromised.

WONDER OF WATER: Understanding ecosystems is key to restoring them, and this China example reminds us of the power of vegetation and soil structure to hold and release water to support life. China is rebuilding the Great Wall – not with stones and mortar, but with trees.
TECH TALK: God-sized water challenges suggest we tap faith and facts to combat current challenges. Let us know your thoughts on this positioning video, and how/where you have seen God move to ensure clean water gets to where it’s needed. We are so grateful to all of you advancing His natural processes to capture rain, restore polluted water bodies and purify drinking water at the point of use. We have decided to focus Global Water Works on these areas, which can be tapped by any size organization - on or off grid.
FUN WITH WATER: Diving Deep down…. To see the marvels of the sea. Neal Agarwal's "The Deep Sea." uses the path of the Challenger to explore who lives at each level of the sea down to the deepest point in the ocean - 10,924 meters.
ALL WE NEED TO KNOW: Artwork can tell us all we need to know about water and the action we need to take.
