I Thirst International
The mission of I Thirst International is to bring the blessing of clean water to the suffering primarily through water filtration, pump repair, and well drilling. We partner with missionaries, Christian organizations, and the local church as they reach out to their communities with the love of Jesus Christ in word and in deed.

FIVE14 SOCCER PROJECT
Pearson Seamless Gutters is supporting I-Thirst International’s first official kick off to their Five14 Soccer Project.
Five14 players are a team with a strategy to end human exploitation in Nepal.
The team motto is, “IN IT TO END IT!” They have a passion to play with a purpose, stir community awareness, raise funds to help prevent and ultimately end human exploitation in Nepal, and of course have fun!
It’s a summer soccer adventure, and you can play too! We would love your support on the side lines, spreading the word to friends and family, or by giving toward the vision.
You can make a onetime donation, or you can make a pledge for every goal the team scores. We will play 10 games this season and will post updates of our schedule on Pearson Seamless Gutters’ Five14 Facebook Event Page.
Door of Hope Palawan
In 2007, the first Door of Hope home for children was built at a beautiful location on the island of Palawan, Philippines. It is a duplex that can accommodate about 15 girls on one side and 15 boys on the other. The property consists of 12 acres, about four of which have been planted to pineapple, citrus trees and a variety of other fruit trees. A lovely stream intersects the property, supplying fresh water all year long.
The cornerstone of their staff consists of house parents who are drawn from a large fellowship of churches called Philippine Christian Fellowship. The hundreds of mature men and women of high integrity provide them with a wonderful resource of people with proven moral character, who are willing to lay down their lives for children who otherwise would have no hope. The children do not enter an institutional atmosphere, but in every way possible they strive to make them feel a part of a loving family. The house parents will fulfill the need in each child to have a mother and father image that will care for them as if they were their own children.

A few years ago, John and Heather Early began to be moved by the plight of children, particularly orphaned children living in horrible conditions in many parts of the world. They decided at that time they wanted to be a couple that was more than just grieved by their suffering, but moved to action.
In October of 2009, John was able to travel to Haiti where he felt that Heather’s Home was already being established by God’s hand. While there, he was able to reunite two orphaned sisters who became the first two children to live in the home.
Their desire is to take children from the jaws of hopelessness and poverty and lavish upon them all the joy, love, and prosperity that they enjoy in their own home. They are not interested in owning a warehouse where children’s basic needs are merely provided for – they are building a home where children will be loved, nurtured, fathered and mothered.
