    One grant of $5100 remains to be given  
   At the end of last year, LWW received from an anonymous donor a gift of $30,100. The donor asked that this money be used for water systems installed by Presbyterians, for Presbyterians. To date five $5,000 grants have been awarded, leaving one more grant of $5,100 available.
   Here are the grantees to date:
   • South Highland Presbyterian Church of Birmingham, Ala., installed with Grace Inkukuon Presbyterian Church in Kiserian, Kenya.
   • Transylvania Presbytery of Lexington, Ky., with Divino Maestro Presbyterian Church of Ukum, Yucatan, Mexico.
   • Advent Presbyterian Church of Cordova, Tenn., with Presbyterian Church Veba de Dio in Moropocay, Honduras.
   • Western Kentucky Presbytery of Hopkinsville, Ky., with Gethsemane Church in Huimanguillo, Tabasco, Mexico.
   • First-Trinity Presbyterian Church of Laurel, Miss., with Guasinas Presbyterian Mission Church in Guasimas, Cuba.
   Any Presbyterian Church which is installing a system in covenant with a Presbyterian Church at a point of need is eligible to apply for the remaining $5,100 grant. To apply, click here to complete the application form.
   Instructions are included with the application form. Praise God from whom all blessings flow!

  FCI: Johnny on the spot
   It was 3 o'clock on a Monday afternoon when I hung up the phone. A Living Waters for the World partner was putting on a training seminar that weekend and needed 30 Clean Water Systems handbooks on short notice.
   I asked Amy Hartell, our client manager at Fulfillment Concepts Inc. (FCI) in Louisville, Ky. No problem, she replied. Could I pick them up at 2 p.m. Wednesday?
   Since 2003, FCI has been a valued partner of LWW, providing unparalleled service in fulfilling needs for system parts, LWW promotional items or, in the case of Clean Water U, all the student binders for every session held.
   FCI's state of the art supply chain, logistics and printing applications provide on-demand services. Its highly qualified staff provides an exceptional level of service to LWW, whose mission it is proud to be a part of.
   When Living Waters for the World
  began, a dedicated volunteer, John Gramling, managed warehousing and shipping from his farm outside Bowling Green, Ky. As the LWW mission grew and Clean Water U became a reality, it became apparent that we'd quickly outgrow John's barn and that supplying teams was going to be more than a one-man-show.
   As is often the case, great relationships begin with an innocent question; In this case, "What is it that you do?"
   During an installation trip to Haiti in 2002, LWW founder Wil Howie posed that question to a member of the installation team, Ralph Hall of Louisville, who operated FCI. A partnership soon was established with FCI.
   Since 2003, it is estimated that FCI has provided services valued at $17,000 annually, making FCI a crucial partner in LWW's efforts in the world water crisis.
