Lent begins on February 17th this year, and we have some exciting new materials we’re offering in honor of this season! As a Christian organization that is focused on providing clean water, sanitation, and hygiene to all our brothers and sisters in sub-Saharan Africa, this is a really important season to us.

You may remember our 40 Days of Water campaign from prior years. Jesus spent 40 days in the desert resisting temptation, so for these 40 days of Lent we invite you to partner with Blood:Water by giving up all beverages with the exception of water (PLEASE don’t stop drinking water!). Then, the money you would have spent on soda, coffee, beer, and whatever other beverages you might normally buy, can become your contribution to Blood:Water to support our partners’ efforts to provide clean drinking water to water-scarce communities in Africa! 

A $40 donation to Blood:Water can give one person water for life. By joining us in our 40 Days of Water challenge, you can connect with the ultimate sacrifice of the Lord and live His lesson of truly loving others as a Christ-follower. To see how profoundly clean water has impacted the communities our partners serve, you can also check out our blog, including this one about the village of Chifenthe in Malawi.

This year, we are thrilled to share our new 40 Days of Water Lenten Devotional with you!

We are also launching a 40 Days of Water Facebook group so that you can engage with others who are utilizing this devotional, as well as connect with some of the Blood:Water team during the Lenten season. Even if you are following along with a separate devotional, we’d love to have you join the group and share with us what you’re learning and reflecting upon through the season.

If you are looking for another way to reflect, you can also take a look at our blog post, Poems for Lent. We hope that you will join us in these exciting activities this year and that we can offer some fellowship and community in this time of reflection. As you join us in our fight to provide clean water for all, we hope to join you in your personal growth and fulfillment through Christ.
