Mobilizing Medical Missions (M3) was honored to partner with Child Legacy International (CLI) and their Clean Water Climb initiative for the 2017 M3 Conference. M3 is so excited to announce that seven M3 Conference attendees will be joining CLI this September on their Clean Water Climb up Mt. Kilimanjaro! The purpose of this annual climb is to raise awareness and funds for clean water in Malawi, Africa. You may be thinking, “Why climb to the summit of Mt. Kilimanjaro?” It’s simple. Mt. Kilimanjaro is the world’s tallest freestanding mountain. It reaches an outrageous 19,341 feet. That’s nearly 4 miles upward. This mountain is large, and that is a perfect representation of the enormity of the water problem in Malawi, Africa.
Death and disease, because of unclean drinking water, are heartbreaking and preventable, and should move us to take action. When God breaks our heart for the things that break His, we are moved to do things beyond the limits we place on ourselves. The Clean Water Climb was created to bring clean water to Malawi, Africa, in the name of Jesus, through a four part mission: Clean Water Fundraising, Acclimatization Safari, Mt. Kilimanjaro Hike, and Water Well Repairs / Gospel Presentation in the villages and schools of Malawi.
For this purpose, CLI brings people and organizations together who have a passion to quench the thirst of those seeking clean water. At the M3 Conference, people are able to connect with great organizations, like Child Legacy International, to help meet the pressing needs around the globe while bringing all glory to God!
We know our M3 Attendees will be blessed as they bless the people of Malawi, and we look forward to sharing an update with you when they return from their climb. In the meantime, please be sure to keep the Clean Water Climb team in your prayers as they go to Africa to be the hands and feet of Jesus.
