Carson-Newman takes part in Missions Emphasis Week

Carson-Newman student Bevan Brown plays with a young Guatemalan girl in her home in the mountainous region of Joyabaj where clean running water is a luxury.

Carson-Newman University is raising awareness of global water needs as a part of its Missions Emphasis Week, Nov. 4 − 9.

Events throughout the week serve to educate students about the need across the globe for access to clean water. During the week, students are raising money to purchase water filters to help families in Guatemala who do not have access to clean water.
