Most of us take for granted the water which flows freely from our taps. But for many villages in South Asia, this basic life necessity is often in short supply. Village wells may dry up—especially during drought season—and it is not unusual for families to walk several miles just to find water for their household needs.
If you are a Dalit ...
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 ...
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.
Often located near GFA fellowships or Bible colleges, Jesus Wells provide hundreds of opportunities for missionaries to share the love of Jesus with the villagers who come for clean water. Jesus Wells also provide much needed clean drinking water for villages.
