As you may know, within the next few weeks a team of men and women will be embarking on a pioneer mission to South Sudan. Without breaching any confidences or going into too much detail which would jeopardize the team’s security, we want to share an exciting project with you which will undoubtedly make a difference in the target area.
“And if anyone gives even a cup of cold water to one of these little ones because he is my disciple, I tell you the truth, he will certainly not lose his reward.” (Matt 10:42)
It is our goal to minister to the greatest needs wherever we go. In this particular area, fresh clean water is not available. Women and children carry buckets of water — polluted, disease-filled water, sometimes for quite a distance. They use this water to feed their children, to drink, to cook their meals, to wash their bodies and clothes. Sometimes the water is nothing less than what we would consider to be sewer water.
What an opportunity to make a difference! The door is open, but we need your help … we can’t do it alone!
Because Jesus made a very profound example of water in the Scriptures, it is our hope to give the people an object lesson using clean water, the washing/cleansing provided by the blood of Jesus, and the plan of salvation. By pairing this with the well, they will be reminded each time they draw from the well that Jesus loves them, that His blood cleanses them, and that there is refreshing for the soul found in Him.
We have a challenge before us to raise the funds for this well prior to departure. This leaves less than four weeks. Can we count on your help? Can you provide a few dollars to invest in a life-giving well that will remind the people of the message of life-giving well flowing from the Throne of Grace just for them?
