John 4:13-14 “Jesus said to her, ‘Everyone who drinks of this water will be thirsty again, but those who drink of the water that I will give them will never be thirsty. The water that I will give will become in them a spring of water gushing up to eternal life.”
Water . . . without it, life would not exist. Our bodies are mostly made of water and without it, we would die. Water is used to give us life, to clean our bodies, to clean our clothes and houses. It is used to bring life to our livestock and our gardens.
We also know that millions of people die every year all over the world because of a lack of clean water.
Recently, Elizabeth Thompson traveled to India with India Partners to Koyalagudem, which is in the region of Andhra Pradesh. They met up with Pastor Eliezer and his wife Prema who founded Living Sacrifice Ministries. Pastor Eliezer and his wife, pastor a local church, run an orphanage with 34 children and train up disciples to pastor in remote villages.
Elizabeth saw first-hand the plight and impact that the lack of clean water has on the people of these villages. One village visited during Elizabeth’s trip had a small reservoir of “not very clean” not too far of a walk from their village. However, this water source will dry up due to the hot season within a few months. Consequently, this will have a major impact on these women causing them to travel three times a day to another village an hour away one way. Not only do the villagers drink from their water sources but also is their place to do their laundry and where animals drink and soil the water
This is what Elizabeth says about Pastor Eliezer. “Pastor Eliezer is a man of integrity, hard-working and has a huge heart. He travels to remote villages and first garners a relationship with the villagers and finds out their needs. After he meets their practical needs, he plants a church.
The cost of putting in a well can average from $2,500 to $4,500.00 depending on the depth needed to drill and area.
Elizabeth also partners with Geeta Khora who operates Mighty Women of Vision and Youth Ministry in SE India. The location is a 10 hour drive from Pastor Eliezer’s ministry. Geeta also works with remote villages in her area of Malgingery in Odissa District developing relationships, installation of wells, schools and churches.
By donating financially to Living Water Well Fund, you will be supporting Pastor Eliezer and Geeta in their efforts to provide physical and spiritual water to their region.
