Church Member Inspires San Diego Youth to Walk for a Cause

When church member Elizabeth Rabbitt learned about the water crisis in sub-Saharan Africa at an annual Maranatha Volunteers International convention, she was inspired to help. Rabbitt began raising money for wells and sharing stories about her mission trips with her community in San Diego. When the young people in Rabbitt’s neighborhood heard about the need in Africa, they decided to hold their own fundraiser, “Walk for Water,” which they hosted on May 3 this year. This neighborhood of young people raised $15,485 and, inspired by Rabbitt’s stories, helped rally a community to live God’s love and provide water for those in need.
