Clean water. It's something that is so easily taken for granted for those of us who live in 1st world countries. But it is something, unfortunately, that many people around the world have little to no access to.
Gospel for Asia is a ministry that I have supported for years as they take the Gospel of Jesus Christ to so many un-reached areas in Southeast Asia, sometimes risking their own lives in the process. They do so by not only preaching the Word, but taking to heart what our brother, James, spoke to us about in his epistle about taking care of people's physical needs. In this case, a Jesus Well.
Many people die every day in Southeast Asia from drinking dirty water. We cannot end this issue, today, but by providing a Jesus Well, we can help provide clean water for an entire village. Hundreds of people!
I have helped purchase a well, before, and recently feel a desire to do it, again. But this time, I want to raise funds by creating a unique challenge to us...a dry fast.
What is that, you might ask? Well, it is a fast in which you abstain from all food, and drink for a particular amount of time. You can do your own independent research, but fasting has many health benefits. The reason why I chose such a unique challenge is because of the nature of this campaign.
If we can sacrifice all food, and even clean water for a short amount of time, how many of us would quickly grow an appreciation for what we have, access to clean water?
I have done this one time, before, and it was hard, but it was also a sweet time of intimate prayer with the Lord. Instead of a 5k race, or some other challenge, my plan is to set aside one 36 hour period where I consume neither food, nor water.
My challenge to you is to set aside a time, even if it's half a day, to do the same. Of course, you do not have to. If you wanted to donate money without the challenge, then great. But I believe the dry fast will help you foster a deeper appreciation for our blessings, and maybe even really help detoxify your body, in the process.

About Jesus Wells

Read below to learn about where donations go.

Jesus Wells increase the health standards of a village, allowing for children to be nourished and animals to be watered. The wells you provide are located in the village or community, so women and children no longer have to walk hours to find water.

With one well you can save an entire village from waterborne illnesses.

Unlike the dirty water from stagnant ponds, streams or old shallow wells, this water is clean and creates an awareness of good hygiene, leading to fewer medical problems and healthier people.
