Message from Ashley

Our Lord and Savior teaches us to act out our faith and provide for others who are unable to do so for themselves. My husband and I want to pass this very important lesson onto our children by giving them the opportunity to provide for others out of the funds they would normally have for gifts of their own. My husband mentioned it to me, and I spoke to them while sitting down at the dinner table.

The conversation went like this...

Me: "You know how you get to eat three times a day and go to the sink to get a drink of water?"

Them: "Yeah."

Me: "How would you feel if you were not able to do that?"

Them: "We would be hungry and thirsty."

Me: "There are people in this world that live like that. What do you think about this idea? Instead of getting presents this Christmas we do what God teaches us and help these people?"

Ty (age 6): "I will give them chocolate cake and spaghetti!"

Me: "Well, we can't send them that, but we can give them clean water to drink."

Them: "Yeah! Let's do that!"

Sadly, we are unable to do this on our own, so we want to give everyone an opportunity to take part; thereby, giving clean water to those who have no opportunity to provide it to their own children. This is no small thing for them. We go to the water fountain or faucet, but they drink from water sources that could kill them. We can change that. Please help us reach our goal and bring real meaningful change to lives that desperately need it.

Thank you & God Bless,
The Ward Family

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.
