Woman at the Well
Like Jesus did with the Woman at the Well, we can use water to deliver a spiritual message.
The Samaritan woman said to him, "You are a Jew and I am a Samaritan woman. How can you ask me for a drink?" (For Jews do not associate with Samaritans.) Jesus answered her, "If you knew the gift of God and who it is that asks you for a drink, you would have asked him and he would have given you living water." "Sir," the woman said, "you have nothing to draw with and the well is deep. Where can you get this living water? Are you greater than our father Jacob, who gave us the well and drank from it himself, as did also his sons and his flocks and herds?" Jesus answered, "Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again, but whoever drinks the water I give him will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life."
Clean Water, the gift of life
Water samples from a church in Cuba.
The before sample is contaminated with bacteria (the testing chemical turned the water brown).
The clean sample was taken after the installation of a Living in Faith water purification system.
Clean water . . . something we take for granted in the United States. Without clean water, communities suffer from typhoid fever, hepatitis, amoebic and bacillary dysenteries, giardiasis, and other gastrointestinal infections.
Living in Faith is installing water purification systems in Cuba and Haiti. These systems are installed in Churches and other Christian sites. This creates a unique evangelistic opportunity. People in the community come to the Church for clean water, where they can also receive the Love of Christ.
If you would like to sponsor all or part of a water purification system, please visit our donations
