Procedure: Review how God provided for the needs of the Israelites even in the desert. When Moses asked from God, God gave them water. Introduce the activity. Explain that some Christian groups give people concrete filters to purify drinking water so they won’t get ill. Have the students decorate water bottles and save change for a specific period of time. Combine student donations and donate to a missionary or a group providing clean water.
