“…but whoever drinks of the water that I will give him shall never thirst; but the water that I will give him will become in him a well of water springing up to eternal life.” John 4:14
Water = Life!
Yes, that’s right. Water does equal life. Our Real Life team has brought clean drinking water into 6 homes already. Teaching the homeowner how to use and clean the filter, so they can have clean pure water. The families were very happy and excited to be receiving a filter – – – no more need to buy drinking water (can use the money to provide food for the family), and no more intestinal concerns due to parasites in the drinking water. Additionally, the family was introduced to the church pastor and invited to worship services. The families selected for the filters have also agreed to share their pure water with their neighbors. The local pastor and leaders from the church will check on these filters throughout the year. This allows them to also check on the family and continue to bring them the Good News of Jesus Christ, so they can not only have pure water, but also learn about the Living Water…
The team also assisting in building a wall at the church. Carrying cinder blocks, shoveling sand and pebbles, mixing cement and carrying it all down a slope to the construction site. True labor of love for our team and the village!”but whoever drinks of the water that I will give him shall never thirst; but the water that I will give him will become in him a well of water springing up to eternal life.” John 4:14
Additionally, on Monday, the team lead the first Women’s Ministry Study! To quote, Tonya, the team lead: “It was awesome!!! I cannot even explain how these women prayed for each other and the community and their families. It was so good to see them in community with each other. Each of them made bracelets with words important to them: FE, AMORE, VALOR, etc..”
The kids’ ministry played four square, jump rope, bubbles. They made salvation bracelets and used the EvangeCubes to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Following this, they held a bible study with the kids of the village.
Please, continue to pray for our team and for those they are ministering to. Together, they are changing the world one community at at time!
