Every week our teams of local workers are going out to remote villages on our island to help with a very specific physical need—clean water. There are still many communities on our island that have little or no access to clean drinking water and it is still common practice for them to travel by motorbike with a jerry can to collect their daily water.
Our teams are working closely with the village leaders to identify how our foundations can help bring water access closer to their homes. Most often we develop a community water supply that is operated and owned by the village. Each family in the village is involved from day one in the development of their own community water supply! Clean water transforms villages in ways they have not experienced before, even more so, many people are hearing about Jesus, studying stories and some are making a commitment to follow Him. Being in the village is key to meeting those people whose hearts God is stirring, and our teams are meeting these people all the time. What an amazing opportunity to introduce these people to the living and eternal water.
Please pray for our teams as they seek to be obedient in following Jesus by showing compassion for the poor and making disciples!
