Learn more about our clean water projects.
Living Water exists to demonstrate the love of God by helping communities acquire desperately needed clean water, and to experience "living water"--the gospel of Jesus Christ--which alone satisfies the deepest thirst. Since 2011, Calvary has raised over $55,000 to fund 9 wells in Honduras. In 2014, teams from Calvary started going to Honduras to help drill wells and teach Bible and hygiene classes. Typically, 8 members help on a drill team and 4 members lead hygiene and Bible lessons for the women and children of the village. You do not need experience in well drilling or construction to help on this trip. Teams from Calvary have gone to Honduras, Nicaragua and Haiti to drill wells and our next trip is to Guatemala. Fill out the form below to apply for the trip or you can contact Amy Anthony at [email protected] for more information.
Over the past 7 years, the kids of Calvary, along with the support of the church, have raised over $50,000 to fund 8 wells in Honduras. 2 years ago we had a team who was supposed to go to Honduras but due to political unrest, they ended up going to Nicaragua. That trip opened the door for us to explore building wells in new countries. Since then we have also sent a team to Haiti to drill a well and this will be our first time going to Guatemala.
Size of Team: 10-12 people—(6-8 drillers and 4 hygiene facilitators)
Approx Cost: $1950 (which includes airfare, in-country transportation, lodging, food, etc. – basically everything except souvenirs!)
Payments Due: July 1st: $200 Oct 1st:$800 Dec 15th: $500 Feb 15th: $450
Minimum age requirement is 15 by the date the trip leaves. If you are under age 18 and not going with a parent, you will have to have medical authorization given to a leader on the trip.
Will I need training?
No, Living Water staff help train while you are on the trip.
What will we do:
The team will arrive in country on Saturday and worship at a local church on Sunday. On Monday, the team will head to the village and work in the community begins. For four days, the team will work on the well or facilitate hygiene training. We attempt to drill a shallow water well using a mud rotary hydraulic rig or an air drilling rig (depending on the location). The hygiene team provides hygiene education, teaches Bible lessons, and plays with the kids. Usually the team finishes on the fifth day followed by a well-dedication ceremony. Depending on the progress of the well, there may be some sight seeing at the end of the trip.
The objectives of the trip are to drill a water well, teach hygiene, encourage the villagers, and work with God in a way that is totally different from what you experience in North America. The trip is not only about bringing clean water and the gospel but also forming relationships with people in the village, the field staff, and the team. It is truly a life-changing experience.
Are we funding the well that we are helping to drill?
YES!! The entire $5500 will be paid for by the money raised from projects like the 10 Day Challenge, VBS offerings and more!

"Going on a missions trip was stepping outside of my “comfort zone” but when I got back I starting looking for more opportunities to serve...
this is coming from a guy who used to see serving as a chore."
"Going on missions trip has helped me see what it really means to be the hands and feet.
We go with a task to complete but the most important part is loving on the people of the communities we serve. "
"Going on a LWI trip isn’t just about building a well or teaching kids/adults about clean hygiene,
being able to see how God works through us building relationships and showing love for the community is the most important part. T
he well will get completed whether we are there or not, but the impact we make on everyone there is the life changing experience for them and for us."
