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.” John 4:14 ESV
In India recently my team had the amazing opportunity to share in a village celebration at the Sathur Learning Center as they opened their water purification center. Our children were so excited to get their first tastes from the tap; I have to confess I was excited too. I felt so privileged to share this joyful moment with the children and staff of Sathur. It was truly God’s hand through a generous church that brought this rain to the drought devastated village—a new well and their first taste of clean, safe water.
We need water every day for drinking, cooking and personal hygiene. Despite impressive gains made across the world over the last decade, more than 748 million people do not have access to an improved source of drinking water. In the US it’s so easy to take safe water for granted; I never question as I turn on a tap if there will be water or if it is safe to drink. March 22 is World Water Day—a day for us to pause and thank God for the precious gift of water.
VisionTrust is currently working to bring not only clean water to our 30 programs in India, but we are reaching out in the name of Jesus every day to share God’s word and living water. We hope you will join us in our challenge to support all of these children who desperately need at taste of clean, safe water. Our goal is big, provide over 1,500 children with clean water for over $100,000. Please consider blessing children in India with their physical and spiritual need for living water!
