Day 10: The Final Day

2016-10_email_banners-23

You’ve made it to the final day of the 10 Days. You’re probably already planning on getting back to your regular morning coffee routine, swinging by Sonic’s happy hour after class, or chugging a Red Bull to fuel a late night study session. Yep, we’ve missed it too.

The 10 Days ends tomorrow, but the work of striving to love our neighbors, do justice, and walk humbly with God is endless. Tomorrow, your small, everyday decisions will still matter as much as they have the past 10 days.

Choosing to remember that 663 million people live without access to safe water—and choosing to remember that we can help change that—is an ongoing process. And it can be hard. Advocating for real, tangible, life-saving change isn’t easy…but it’s always worth it.
