“When we were first introduced to The Bucket Ministry through a separate mission trip, and we found out about you guys, it really spoke to our hearts. What y’all do, the simplicity of your mission, providing clean drinking water to people across the globe–that is doing exactly what Christ promised He would do for us. He promises us He will provide for our every need, and one of the most fundamental needs is clean drinking water. The combination of the fact that y’all are sharing the Gospel at the same time with these folks….I mean, my goodness! It is such a perfect marriage between need and preaching and being welcomed to the community. This is something anybody can get behind.
4 Now there are varieties of gifts, but the same Spirit1 Corinthians 12:4-7
5 And there are varieties of ministries, and the same Lord
6 There are varieties of effects, but the same God who works all things in all persons
7 But to each one is the manifestation of the Spirit for the common good
very single golf cart we sell, we contribute $50 which provides a filter to a family. When customers come in and we tell them about this, not every customer we have is walking with Christ, but providing clean drinking water is something they can still get behind. For example, we had a customer come in several months ago that was just kicking tires–considering buying a golf cart. They noticed the Christian flag I have flying outside and asked me if we were a Christian business. I affirmed, and then they asked me how we put that into action. I love that challenge–when somebody doesn’t want to just hear a ‘yes’, but also a ‘what’. We told them about The Bucket Ministry; and not only did they buy a golf cart from me that day–which was a result of what we were doing with The Bucket Ministry–but that same couple also wanted information about The Bucket Ministry so they could contact y’all more directly and get involved. So what was a benefit to me was a benefit to y’all, and was also a benefit to everyone of these families across the globe that are receiving clean drinking water because of this.”
