It is hard to imagine life without clean water. A matter of fact, clean water is so common-place that most of us don’t even give it a second thought. We grab a glass, place it under a faucet and a few seconds later we quench our thirst without worry of sickness and disease, but not all people have that luxury.
We have been working throughout Nicaragua for many years and our focus has been, and always will be Jesus. We are growing though, and the Lord has put a stronger burden on our heart for the physical needs of the people. It is hard to ignore the faces of men, women and children suffering from the lack of the most basic of needs. We have travelled into very rural areas where families have no other choice but to drink out of stagnant ponds or polluted rivers. We’ve seen areas given “clean water” only to have it regulated by the government where they only have an hour or two of use a day. We know that these conditions lead to horrible, daily suffering and we want to reach out and allow God to use us to help these people.
We were recently given the funds to buy a well-drilling rig and we are excited about the doors God will open with it. We will be trying it out and learning how to use it at our facility in Harlingen then we will ship it to Nicaragua. Once it is in Nicaragua, we will be ready to start drilling!
We would like to invite you to be a part of this exciting new ministry. We need teams who can help with the wells as well as minister to the people in the village. Each well-drilling mission trip will be set up in one village for 3-4 days. We will have an opportunity to not only give that village clean water, but to spiritually pour into their lives during that time. If you would like to get involved with bringing clean water to the people of Nicaragua, but don’t think you can go yourself, please consider taking part in the cost of one well. It will cost approximately $1000.00 to purchase the well casing and pump and any donation toward this cost would be a great blessing.
Please keep us in your prayers as we start off on this new adventure for the Kingdom of Heaven!
