Since 2013, TivaWater has partnered with Powell United Methodist Church from Powell, TN. Year after year we have been moved by their congregation’s passion and commitment to providing safe drinking water and the hope of Jesus to the people of Guatemala.
Every summer, a team from Powell UMC travels to Chichicastenango and deliver filters to families without access to clean water. These TivaWater filters are tangibly sharing the love of God with the most vulnerable communities.
Each December, the leadership of Powell UMC take up a special offering, which will purchase filters for the upcoming mission trip in the summer time. Last year, they purchased 216 filters! Since we began partnering with Powell UMC, they have purchased over 700 filters.
While in Guatemala, they work with their good friend and our operations manager for TivaWater Guatemala, Diego. He is an incredible man of God, dedicated to making sure filters are delivered to those who need it most.
Team members of Powell Church love delivering the filters because not only are they providing people with life giving water, they are able to instantly connect with the people in these communities as they visit their homes and set up the filters.
If your church or organization is interested in providing clean water on your mission trips (either in Guatemala or Uganda), please contact Olivia@tivawater.com
