Donate to Jesus Wells
A Jesus Well costs $1,400; these funds provide for equipment, digging and installation. The wells are often located near church buildings or Bible colleges, and the well provides for both the physical need of clean water and spiritual needs. Wells can provide hundreds of opportunities for workers to share hope with the villagers who come for clean water. A Jesus Well provides pure water for an entire village full of thirsty people for only $1,400. With clean water, the health of the people improves significantly.
Provide Clean Water for an Entire Village
Jesus Wells Are Bringing Water, Breakthroughs and Redemption
GFA’s clean water ministry is delivering safe, disease-free water to families across Asia through Jesus Wells.
Finding water that will not cause death in the family is a challenge many people in Asia face.
Women and children are forced to walk hours a day to distant water sources, such as filthy ponds or lakes, and even then the water may be contaminated. Sometimes they know this will bring death and sickness to their families, but they have no other choice.
But the Lord is using Jesus Wells profoundly. The water is freely offered to all, regardless of their religious or social background. Providing safe water is a practical way to show people how much God loves and cares for them, and Jesus Wells can open the door for people to see the love and mercy of Christ.
Millions in Asia Are Still Without Clean Water
- 663 million people worldwide don’t have access to safe water. That’s almost 1 in 10 people.**
- Every year, 361,000 more children could live to see their fifth birthday if they had safe water and good sanitation habits.**
- Water contaminated with something like arsenic can give a person headaches, confusion, stomach pains, vomiting and diarrhea. Long term exposure to arsenic can lead to skin diseases, cancer or—if not treated—coma and death.

Jesus Wells Are a Wise Investment
Although other water well projects can cost several times as much, GFA is able to support the drilling of a well for only $1,400*. Each Jesus Well serves an average of 300 people for about 20 years, and the wells are drilled up to 600 feet deep, providing pure water in even the worst droughts. Local labor and materials are used to drill the wells, which keep the costs low.
Jesus Wells Help Entire Villages
