Argyle UMC had a dream to help bring water to two small, indigenous villages in the mountains above Antigua, Guatemala. Our church raised $10,000 to purchase supplies for a water tank that pipes water to these communities through your donations and the money raised by our own Argyle Kids from our 2016 Vacation Bible School! We have just received our 5th and final update from our brothers and sisters in Guatemala on their now completed water project!
At the commissioning of this completed project, the Mayor of the communities knelt over this water tank and had a time of prayer before he gave a speech. Here is a message from them:
"We all are so grateful to all of you who gave this gift so desired for by all of us. While making his address, the Mayor began to cry, because he said that it was a miracle to have achieved this project. Years ago we were looking for those who might could help, but we never thought that this year we would have our water. The mayor said this with tears in his eyes!!! We also felt like I was in a dream because everything was achieved with the help of the Church!!"
As you can see in the pictures below, a plaque has been placed on this water tank in honor of Argyle United Methodist Church. Thank you all for your Irrational Generosity that has made this dream a reality!
