This month: CKC Updates on Clean Water and Triennial
Hello, Friend! Your faithfulness is making a difference to our friends in Congo. If you've ever wondered how a deep well provides clean water for thousands of people, check out the latest CKC blog post from engineering grad Lars Anderson. He breaks down how such an extensive water system works - and why it's so critical in an area where it used to be that only 11% of the population had access to clean water.

Plus, if you're at Triennial right now, we have news for you! Scroll down for more information on how you can engage with Covenant Kids Congo at Triennial.

At Triennial? So is Covenant Kids Congo!

If you're at the Triennial women's conference in Kansas City this week, come learn more about Covenant Kids Congo through these two opportunities.

The Strong Women of the World Experience
Exhibit Hall A

Join Serve Globally and Love Mercy Do Justice as we celebrate women who are transforming their communities around the world. Walk through the experience to visit each region, read each woman’s story, and see objects that are relevant to their lives.

Along the way, you’ll encounter an interactive experience from DR Congo, including a maternal health clinic with Paul Carlson Partnership and the Lycée Vanette classroom with Women Ministries. In the Covenant Kids Congo corner, you'll hear the story of Deborah, a 10-year-old girl sponsored through CKC. You'll also be able to sign up to sponsor a child. Write the name of the child you sponsor on a paper heart and hang it up on the bulletin board. On the board, we'll see the names of all the children who are sponsored by women at Triennial!
