Our Student Ministry has been on two mission trips with Filter of Hope. We love Filter of Hope for four reasons. 1. They care deeply about the Gospel being spread. 2. They encourage everyone on the trip to try sharing the Gospel at least once. 3. The water filters bring clean water and health to families and communities. So you help make a physical impact and spiritual. 4. Their trips are affordable.
We have been collaborating with Filter of Hope for over 2 years. Since that time, we have been able to install over 35 water filters, share the gospel and love on the people in very remote areas. When we go down to these spots, the water filters are similar to a peace offering, letting them know we are there to help and not hurt them. The professionalism and compassion of Filter of Hope is astounding! Thank you Filter of Hope for all you are doing!
Filter of Hope is one of the most impressive non-profits I've ever encountered, and I work with non-profits on a daily basis. My husband and I support FoH monthly because we believe in their mission. I recently went on a trip to install filters and share the FoH message. It was life-changing, not only for those we met, but also for those who participated as part of the mission team. The connection made with the local church in mission towns is critical, and the approach FoH teaches works beautifully.
I have taken multiple trips with FOH. All of the trips were well planned, organized, safe, and had a huge impact on my life. I can't wait for next summer.
Filter of Hope drastically changed my life and my willingness to live a life that seeks to serve others. This humanitarian organization’s outreach to multiple developing nations is impressive for the youth of the non-profit. Wonderful and passionate staff! The organization is central focus revolves around a product that truly saves lives.
This is an amazing ministry. I went on a trip to Cuba in Aug. 2109. The trip leaders, the pastors and church members we worked with on the trip and everyone in the organization are so passionate about this ministry. The filters are amazing how they work and what they provide to families for such a small cost is incredible. I would recommend supporting and going on a mission trip if you have the opportunity.
When you think of excellence in every possible way, think Filter of Hope. They lay out a red-carpet experience for anyone who joins them in their work. They create powerful moments that are both surprising and fulfilling. Their mission is clear, to provide clean drinking water to impoverished areas all over the world and to share the hope and message of Jesus. What they do makes a tangible difference every day. Their filter is literally saving lives every day. Children, adults, entire families. I work with a large organization that has over 20,000 employees and has been around for 70 years. In partnership with Filter of Hope, their organization has asked one question to us over and over again. How can we help you meet your goals. Not once has Filter of Hope asked for anything in return. They are selfless and put others ahead of themselves. They are the definition of what great partnership truly is.
In the fall of 2017, I was introduced to Filter of Hope and became more aware of the water crisis that plagues our world. Such a simple filter demonstration (manure water turned into safe drinking water) intrigued me and peaked my interest to learn more about Filter of Hope and their mission.
I have been to numerous third world countries and have seen the effects contaminated water has on people and communities. Being a plumbing design engineer, I understand how important safe, clean water is to families and communities throughout our world.
I was very impressed with their solution for this global crisis and how offering the gift of water, both physically and spiritually to those in need was so simple, I felt the call to become more involved.
In the fall of 2018, I became an Ambassador for Filter of Hope, raising awareness of this global crisis as well as fundraising to supply filters for those in need.
My wife and I journeyed with Filter of Hope for the first time in July of 2019 to Cuba to distribute filters in local communities. Seeing children and adults take a drink of clean water and hearing the Gospel, sometimes for the first time ever, is a feeling that is very hard to put into words. It is an experience I soon will not forget. I look forward to my next trip and beyond with Filter of Hope.
They are very well organized with very passionate people, who believe in mission and are very good at what they do. It was a blessing to be part of something way bigger than myself.
It was truly an amazing experience and honor to team up with such a great organization that is literally changing the world we live in, one cup at a time.
Since 2015 we have been on 4 mission trips with Filter of Hope. I've come to know their team personally and have seen firsthand their integrity and faith. They are organized, efficient, reliable and well connected in the areas they serve.
I really enjoy how giving filters to needy families takes us into homes and face to face with them. We get to know them before we share the gospel so it's a very personal connection. I prefer this to missions that are service only and don't put me in front of the people I'm helping. Below are some of the people we met this year (2019).
Filter of Hope has been an easy, turn-key way for our church to get connected to international mission projects that actually matter. The staff and team leaders are gospel-centered, ooze compassion for locals, and are patient with those on our teams who need a little TLC. I wholeheartedly recommend this organization and their mission to bring clean water and the news of the risen Christ to the nations. -Jon Quitt, Vineyard Community Church
We went on a FOH trip to Cuba this July and were incredibly impressed with the team and the work they are doing. The trip was extremely well organized and we were able to install every water filter we brought with us. Spending quality time with those we met and seeing their reactions to the filters was worth the trip.
As the mission director of Grace Evangelical Church, I have seen, heard and read numerus articles on water contamination around the world! I have had the privilege of going on over thirty mission trips, seeing firsthand the effects of what contaminated water does to the health of men, woman and children, even to the point of death. I have traveled and spent time in remote and not so remote parts of the world and have personally seen the need for clean water. I have seen how dirty water affects people lives and drains their meager resources. I began looking for ways our church could help stop the effects of drinking, cooking and bathing in contaminated water.
As I continued searching for a better solution, I found a product called Filters of Hope. These filters took out the issues that all other methods and solutions could not. It’s a small portable filter unit that will produce 150 gallons of safe clean drinkable water a day. As I read about this filter, how it is constructed and how easy it is to use and maintain, I was sold! They are small, light-weight and packaged in a zip-lock bag, perfect for packing several in your checked luggage.
I contacted Filters of Hope to find out even more about their filter, their distribution, their cost, and how Grace Evangelical Church could take these filters with us on our mission trips, and even help get them distributed to the rest of the world.
I have seen firsthand how these filters remove 99% of the contaminants from the water. I have seen the joy and relief of the people when they know this will keep children and themselves from suffering from water born illnesses. We have seen and heard great testimonies from those who have received these filters and from our members who have gone and given them out. I witnessed an orphanage in Haiti that had a well but couldn’t drink or wash with this water. They were purchasing water for the children and staff. We set up two Filters of Hope filters and started filtering their well water, saving them the need to buy water. I’ve seen the tears of mothers (tears of joy) whose children had been suffering with sicknesses from the contaminated water and now they have a way of ending their children’s illnesses by having clean water. The filters are also an opportunity to share the Gospel, showing how the dirty water is an example of what I was like before Jesus cleansed me, like the filter cleans the water and makes it pure.
