Forming respectful relationships with the poor in a manner that allows them to activate their work, talents, and knowledge are key components of Todd and Maria Luke’s Gospel-driven outreach. More than just a clean water/poverty alleviation project, a relation-based work movement is happening within communities of subsistence level farmers. Many are indigenous Ch’ols, and they suffer from poor health due in part to the lack of access to clean water. Ch’ol Presbyterian laymen organize families to work together to build family-owned cisterns that collect rainfall. During the process, our Mexican partners teach useful construction skills, demonstrate the value of partnership, pray together, and share the Good News in a casual and natural manner.
