If you've ever visited our home, more than likely you have smelled our water. We have well water that sometimes smells like rotten eggs, lol. It is so hard that all of our bathtubs and toilets are orange (unless they've just been scrubbed) and we wash our whites at Andy's parents' home. We have bottled water delivered to our door, because even the filter on the refrigerator door is not able to take away the iron taste.
At night, Levi's typical prayer is, "Thank you, God, for my family, for my home, for my clothes, and for my water." After listening to that prayer over and over, God has helped me to be more thankful for our water. Because while I rarely drink it, I could if I needed to, and it would quench my thirst. My children could drink it and not be in danger of bacteria and disease. Please consider joining us in giving toward a Jesus Well.
The following is from Gospel For Asia:
If you are a Dalit, one of Asia's "Untouchables," you will likely be barred from drawing water from the village well at all because of your inferior social status. And Christians suffer too, as persecution commonly comes in the form of banning them from the local water source.
But God is providing Jesus Wells for such communities. Bearing a plaque with the inscription of Jesus' words in John 4:13-14 about offering eternally satisfying water, each well is a tangible expression of Jesus' love. The well not only provides families with life-nourishing physical refreshment, but also points them to the true source of Living Water.
Imagine the joy of Christians in Asia—as well as "Untouchable" Dalits—when a Jesus Well is dug in their village! Not only are the believers encouraged in their faith, but by God's gracious provision, hundreds of communities have been transformed—for now and eternity—through the Jesus Wells outreach.
