Ministries Making a Difference
Water Mission, Assemblies of God, Legacy Pregnancy Resource Center, Meridian-Amikas Village
Water Mission is partnering with UNICEF to author new solar-powered water systems design and installation guides for rural communities. Since its inception in 2001, Water Mission has served more than 7 million people through 2,800 water projects in 57 countries. Water Mission has three stars and an “A” transparency grade in the MinistryWatch database, and a donor confidence score of 100.
In December, Meridian Baptist Church in El Cajon, California, opened its new “village” of emergency shelters on its campus for homeless women and their children. The cottages were built by more than 100 volunteers. Meridian-Amikas Village, as the pilot project is called, is a joint venture of Meridian Baptist, a local non-profit focused on helping homeless women and children, and the city of El Cajon. Women can stay for 90 days as they figure out next steps.
Assemblies of God is organizing a “Seek and Save” initiative to mobilize congregations in major cities throughout the U.S. to collaborate on outreach events. Volunteers will engage in service projects—such as painting schools and doing landscaping—and evangelism.

Members of First Baptist Church in Hobbs, New Mexico, voted unanimously to donate a building on its property to Legacy Pregnancy Resource Center. Nearby Taylor Memorial Baptist Church also voted to donate its $50,000 budget surplus to renovating the building. Founded a little more than 10 years ago, Legacy has moved at least five times, and this will be the center’s first permanent location. Legacy provides pregnancy tests, baby supplies, classes, and prayer to pregnant women in need of practical and spiritual support.
