Pure Undefiled Religion is in part to look after orphans and widows. It is the primary focus of our efforts carried out in two divisions, PUR Service serves needs internationally while PUR Compassion serves needs domestically. We provide emotional, financial, and organizational support to orphans and widows and other unique situations where we feel called.
Pur Service is designed to reach people and communities outside our own. Our history in doing so began in Uganda, and continues to expand to Ukraine, Costa Rica, Haiti, and wherever else the Lord may lead. If this interests you, get involved by viewing our current campaigns.
Take a moment to google Haiti. Read the news headlines. EVERY ONE OF THEM. Haiti is currently listed as one of the most dangerous countries on Earth. Don't get me wrong, Haiti is amazing. Most Haitians are beautiful, amazing, loving people. The percentage that aren't, are crippling the country. We have a partner outside of Port-au-Prince that is providing incredible opportunities for Haitians. Farmer John's is a butcher shop & processing center that gives Haitians a place to sell their livestock, to buy inexpensive meat and provides necessary, clean meat to NGO's around the country. It's one of the only (IF NOT THE ONLY) sanitary butcher shop in Haiti. If you read the headlines, the volatility in Haiti has surpassed any level of sustainability. Fuel prices are unreachable. Roadblocks and violence make delivering meat borderline impossible. Access to supplies (especially fuel) is extremely limited. Farmer John's is saving lives. No question. In order to keep operating, we need to install a solar panel system to keep their coolers running and to limit fuel consumption so we can save the limited fuel reserves for emergencies (which seem to be weekly). Please partner with us to try to make a difference in the lives of these beautiful Haitians that seem to never catch a break. Life is a constant battle there and this is an opportunity to save lives, continue income sources for them and to help keep NGO's in operation in the country. We're personally involved at a big level and would love support from anyone that can! The whole project is around $300,000. An amazing family has already covered $200,000 of that. They understand the need! Please consider joining us in this fight! Ricky and Becca #Finnsarmy
On October 22nd, 2022, Calvin Weber, age 37 was taken home to heaven. Calvin was kind and gentle in nature, always willing to help anyone out whether he knew them or not. He was a devoted husband and father to his wife Kayla and two children, Lola (7) and Lane (5). He enjoyed watching football, hanging out with family and friends, attending sporting events for his kids, nieces and nephews and drinking Diet Coke --- lots of Diet Coke. Calvin's legacy is one of humble service, deep love for family, and compassion for others. Our hope is in Jesus knowing that we will see Calvin again. Until that day, he will be deeply missed. _____ Here is another opportunity to step up and help stop the collateral suffering. For those that don't know, Finn's Army, was created because we became excruciatingly aware of the perpetual pain that is created in these times of tragedy. The thief wants to expand the hurt as deep and far as he can. What he didn't count on was the army that God has put here to step in. Please join in that mission. Kayla and Calvin were friends of ours. Rebecca had coached with Kayla and their family lived in the first house that was our home. At a bare minimum, we want to step in any "BUY" time for Kayla, Lola and Lane to be together and grieve. To have time to spend healing their hearts. Please step into this opportunity! We love you! Ricky and Becca
We along with our partner groups are hoping for 100,000 filters for Ukraine. We need donations, but also connections. Billions have been given to “Ukrainian aid” and water is number one when it comes to survival. We need to find connections to tap into that aid to use it for good and where needed most. Every filter system is $65 and includes a three year filter, water bag, a bottle of prenatal vitamins/vitamins and a Ukrainian New Testament (if wanted). We know that the distress in Ukraine and surrounding areas continues and we as Pur International hope to enter it with hope. waterall.org has additional resources and descriptions of their vivoblu filters.
Is it possible to die of a broken heart? ABSOLUTELY. We had a campaign a few months for a tragic accident in Tishomingo, OK. Blue was involved in this accident. Although he in no way was responsible for what had happened, his compassion and empathy really had left him with a broken heart. Blue is an amazing man that didn’t deserve the situation life threw at him. Finn’s army is established to try to help stop the perpetual hurt that happens through these tragic situations. Please join with us to try to help stop the cycle! Stop the thief in his tracks. Thank you in advance. Ricky Waitman #Finnsarmy Pur Compassion _____ On October 3rd, 2022, the Burton family lost their father and husband, Blue. Blue was a proud father and grandfather who loved God and showed his faith in all circumstances, setting a great example for his boys. He always had a smile on his face and was always more than willing to help anyone in a time of need. Blue loved fast cars and big motors, and spent countless hours working on trucks with the boys. He drove semi-trucks as a trade and still yet had a passion for traveling. Those left to cherish his memory are his wife, Sarah Burton and three sons, Wesley Burton and wife Lindsey, Crook Burton and Cutter Burton and his girlfriend Mackenzie, as well as grandchildren, Dallie and Madelyn. Please join us in raising funds for the Burton family as they deal with this unexpected loss and the path here forward.
