Fresh Drinking Water
Living in the United States or a country that provides fresh drinking water to it’s citizens can sometimes go unappreciated. Especially if you have never had to go without it. Even today with our fresh water supplies, people by the millions drink bottled water. Christianity today demonstrates giving to our neighbors. Christian disciples around the world are striving to be the best in what they do when it comes to making fresh drinking water available to everyone through global missions.
Fresh drinking water however, is not available to millions of others around the world. That’s where a water ministry plays a very important role in providing a fresh water supply with water wells. Fresh drinking water is literally just a few feet below the surface. A lack of fresh drinking water has many lasting effects on people’s lives. Disease and dehydration are common and is a way of life for many.
Love Your Neighbor
water gives life and so does Jesus
It takes compassion, love, desire and finances to put and provide water wells in India, Africa, Haiti, Asia and South America. Anywhere there is a need, as Christian disciples that are Godsent to the nations, we have to do our part in helping or providing fresh drinking water and sharing the love of Jesus Christ. Jesus teachings tell us that we are to “love our neighbor as ourselves.” And I know that water gives life and so does Jesus.
You can see the joy through the people’s smiles when their fresh drinking water well is installed. Now they can wash themselves, have clean drinking water for cooking and water their plants they grow for food. Fresh drinking water seems like such a small thing to many of us, but to millions it can mean the difference between life and death. A clean water supply gives the people hope for a future.
Most times the people have to travel miles and hours just to reach a pool of bug and disease infested water. Where their drinking water is used to wash clothes and feed the livestock. Just think about it, it is not water that most people would even give to their pets.
There are many water ministries that have dedicated their lives, time and expertise. They just need some help from all of us. You can volunteer your time through global missions organizations or purchase a fresh drinking water well in your name. You will feel good knowing that the children and their families will have fresh drinking water that gives them longer life.
Missionary stories from around the globe inspire and encourage us to be about our Father’s business.
Proverbs 19:17 Whoever is generous to the poor lends to the LORD, and he will repay him for his deed.
All people from all countries are our brothers and sisters and we have to show how Jesus loves you through other people. We need to be the example of the love of Jesus so that He can be glorified.
