Living Water Gala.

Last weekend we volunteered at the Living Water International Gala along with some friends.  If you haven't heard of Living Water, it is a great organization that, among other things, drills and fixes wells around the world in places where there is no clean water.  Along with helping people get water, they also share the gospel.  Living Water's website describes it much better here.  It is amazing to think that many people lack something as fundamental as clean water and what a big impact on society it really has (read here).

We were just thrilled to be a part of such a fantastic organization and event.  There were about 1,000 people in attendance at the Gala.  They had tons of cool exhibits (created by Josh, below in the blue suspenders) demonstrating what people have done to raise money for Living Water (one guy actually ran from the Pacific Coast to the Atlantic Coast -- amazing, right?).  In addition, they had a fun photo "booth" set up through Smilebooth.  We definitely took advantage of it!

Here we are after the night's festivities being goofy. 

Justin and I thought it would be funny to reenact the typical homecoming pose.  We are pros, if I do say so myself, but we did have 3 years of worth of practice plus our senior prom.

Last, but not least, we did a cheesy "family" portrait of sorts with our adopted "child," Kevin.  It was nice that we all wore purple -- totally unplanned.  Awesome.

During the program, Justin and Kevin changed from their suits and put on coveralls, boots, and helmets and demonstrated using one of Living Water's drills.  Sadly, I didn't get a good picture of them onstage.  We had a blast both volunteering at and attending the Gala (and playing around in the photo booth too).
