Thursday we hosted clinic in a poorer village full of women and children. In this community, most of the families get their water from a local well or rain water. There were many kids sick with amoeba or worms. As a part of the fourth year project and thanks to the generous donations of Briarwood Presbyterian, we were able to pass out 26 water filters that can filter up to 300 gallons of water per day and last for up to 10 years. This is going to make a huge impact in the overall long term health and financial situation of many families. Ashlyn taught the community how to use the filter and then Fowler followed with the gospel presentation—we now think he either missed his calling to be a preacher or should be a bi-vocational minister. There was not a dry eye in the church as Fowler connected the cleansing of the dirty water via the filter to the blood of Christ that cleanses our hearts from all sin and impurity. Amens rang out from the church and our team began to realize the impact we are making.
Thank you for being our continued prayer partners as we return to this church tomorrow and continue to share Jesus, the Living Water, with all we meet.
but whoever drinks of the water that I will give him will never be thirsty again.
The water that I will give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life.’”
