One of our members is involved in a church program to convert guns to rope pumps.

The people of Columbia Presbyterian envision a world where devices associated with death are turned into implements that give life. The congregation asked its members and people from the surrounding community to donate guns to the project. These were taken to a local artistic blacksmith who forged a symbolic, working rope pump with wood and metal from the guns.

This project sends a powerful message of peace to people in the United States and will raise funds to meet an urgent need for safe water in Malawi. (video by Laura Grace Bordeaux).
