Bundibugyo Water Project

We have an opportunity to help provide clean water to four villages in Bundibugyo, Uganda organized by our cross-cultural workers Josh and Anna Dickenson who visited with us last year. Our Global Engage Team is asking our congregation for generosity over and above their normal giving to Redeemer as an offering to help the project with the $15,000 still remaining toward the goal of $100,000. Beginning Sunday, January 29th and extending through the month of February, you may give to the project by visiting our website at redeemerws.org and giving to the Bundi Water Project or using the QR code listed below. If you write a check, be sure to indicate Bundi Water Project on the memo line. Our children are participating in this through an offering taken in worship training. See update from the Dickensons below:

The BundiWater Project: Blessing Bundibugyo with clean water as a tangible sign that God’s new redeemed Kingdom is here, so that people are not only healthier but more aware of God’s goodness.

Project Update – Mabere Project: There are 4 villages located along the Rwenzori Mountains that we are targeting for a water project. There are over 1200 people who live in these 4 villages and currently each household spends 2 hrs daily fetching water from nearby streams due to the distance and the terrain. We are planning a water project with 10 water access points and over 4 miles of water pipes, a water reservoir, and a filter system to serve these 4 communities and reduce the walking time down to 10-15 minutes. We have a remaining $15,000 to reach our initial goal of $100,000 for construction costs to launch this project. Thanks for your prayers and financial support!

Tripp's Hero's

Tripp Sanders, a dear friend of many in Winston Salem, died in August of 2021. As a way to remember him, his wife Jen, along with a group of friends, have created a new award called Tripp's Heroes.

Tripp loved to notice and celebrate those people who made a difference in others’ lives and in our world. It may have been a restaurant server who attended to their customers with hospitality and kindness, a crossing guard for the school that kept everyone safe, a policeman who went the extra mile to know and listen and understand the whole story, a cafeteria worker that welcomed students with warmth, or the neighbor who suffered so much but got up every day to walk and greet the day and others with “You hanging in there?” In a divisive world where people tear one another down, these seemingly invisible people bring hope and encouragement by showing kindness to others as part of their everyday lives.

Will you help us honor these folks? Please nominate someone who lives or works in Forsyth County, NC to be celebrated the last week in April in memory of Tripp and his birthday. Nominations for this Award are Due March 8th, 2023.

Hawthorne House Project

The Hawthorne House is a guest house operated by Redeemer for those in need of short-term, rent-free housing. Our hope is that the Hawthorne House will be a safe, secure, and comfortable respite for families and individuals in these strange and unusual times.

We need volunteers to periodically clean, fix, and maintain the Hawthorne House. Additionally, you can volunteer by visiting with guests or bringing them a home-cooked meal. Please contact Ben Nelson (mbenelson@gmail.com) to find out more about volunteering.
