God is changing the world through water. By delivering the most important human need, doors are being opened to get the Gospel in.
Everyone needs it – the body can survive without food for about 30-40 days, but without water, the body can only survive about 5 days. People need to drink water, it can’t be avoided, because of this waterborne diseases are the world’s most prominent killers. They hide in what you need the most, a cup, bucket, lake, well, or stream of water.
Thanks to the efforts of many organizations across the country that work to provide safe water, the gospel is being spread.
Bibles and Christians are entering countries they never could before.
In one of the projects that Water Missions International sent a water system to for disaster relief – a previously Hindu man recently asked for a bible and has started witnessing to others. Not only is he witnessing to people within his own ethnic group but also to members of the opposing party! Christ coming into this man’s life is breaking down the barriers of years of political conflict!
It is amazing how God breaks down walls and opens doors when you serve him. His love overcomes even the fiercest of ethnic divisions, and can spread to the hardest to reach areas.
By meeting a basic physical need, spiritual needs are being met. What an amazing blessing and challenge! Let us continue to work diligently, using our unique gifts to craft creative solutions to the water crisis!
