Mike Reid was born on October 4, 1949, in Hillsboro, Texas.  He spent most of his life growing up in Fort Worth, Texas graduating from Polytechnic High School. Mike grew up in the Methodist church where he was christened as a baby and then accepted the Lord as his savior and was baptized as a teen.
He graduated from DeVry University with an associate degree in Electronic Engineering in 1971.  Mike was interviewed by Southwestern Bell Telephone during his final months at DeVry and hired to start work after graduation. After holding several positions including craft jobs, teaching at the Technical Training Center, managing test centers, process improvement staff, and working on the merger teams (AT&T & Bell South), he retired after 39 years.  Hired back as a contractor and worked until September of 2019.
Mike saw a demonstration of the water filter during a meeting for a mission trip to Nigeria with the WE Go Nigeria team.  He told the team when he retired, he wanted to go.  So, Mike retired on a Friday and traveled to Nigeria that Sunday.
Mike now works as a volunteer for The Bucket Ministry, the We Go Niagara team, Chaplin at Rockwall Texas Health Hospital, and Crisis Coordinator for his Life Group at Lakepointe Church.
He is married to Suzanne, and they have 4 fantastic married children with 6 grandchildren.
The Lord has set this Ministry in motion to provide clean, safe, drinking water to people across this world enabling them to hear the Gospel and learn about Jesus Christ.
Mike has several verses from the Bible that he holds close. One is Romans 12:2, “Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.”
