In Memory / Honor of

In memorium of John W. Newman

John W. Newman

Diane Smiech donated $10,000 towards the drilling of water wells in memorium of: John W. Newman, Diane’s oldest son, and brother to Ben and Nick Newman.John was born on Veteran’s Day 1979 and passed away on the 4th of July 2020.

John was a civil engineer in Florida and specialized in storm water management. He was all about water. He would have been thrilled to know of this water ministry that provides both clean water for rural villages and shares the Good News that Jesus is our Savior.

John knew well the effects of too much water, as well as the need for clean water, in order to live. More importantly, John knew of the need of Jesus to change a life such as his own.

One of John’s favorite verses was Psalm 27:13, “I will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.” We are confident that John is seeing God’s goodness.

Our prayer is that John W. Newman will always be remembered by this donation, which epitomizes his overarching life goals: to give clean water and to share Jesus.


In memorium of Diana Beaty

Diane Beaty

The Beaty family donated new water wells given in loving memory of Diana Beaty, the matriarch of her family.

Her husband, Bill, wrote,
"Diana was the kindest and most loving person we have ever known. She was such a strong influence, not just on our family, but on everyone she talked with. Her impact on this world while she was here was truly incredible. We would like to continue this impact by donating, in her name, to Water4Life Mozambique. Diana really loved the people of Mozambique, especially the children. We can't think of a better way to honor her than to use what God has blessed us with to help others. Thank you for the work you are doing in the lives of so many people."

We thank you, Beaty family, for honoring Diana by giving a donation that others might enjoy clean, safe water that will, for generations, bless their Mozambican community, especially the children, because they will have a healthier life ahead of them. Diana would be so happy to be honored in this way.
