Photojournalism: Overflow Living Water event

I really enjoyed photographing this event. The discussion was about the importance of clean water and lack of clean water in the world. We learned that millions of people don't have access to clean water, 88% of disease is caused by water born diseases and much more. 
The group did a fundraiser working with global aid network to get life straws to people without clean water. Basically a life straw can be put it rivers, lakes, any body of water, and will filter that water. They last for at least a year. 
This water talk was held at a weekly event called Overflow where christians can worship, play games and hear a speaker. So I wanted to capture the spiritual aspect too, which is why I photographed Rachel reading her bible.

This last photo doesn't really convey anything about the event, 
I just thought it was cool :)
