We’re not in this for the short run - we drill wells to last. In India, our driller and his crew revisits every well each October and November to make sure they are still working well, make any repairs as needed, and mark the well as revisited. When you make a donation to Water of Life - know that you are making a gift that lasts.

"The drilling of the new well by the water of life team in Kaya Mathabi, Sierra Leone has brought new hope and joy to the people. The chief, elders and people of the community people welcomed the team and were happy about the news of the well though they were doubtful of how it will be done because they only had an idea of borehole wells. Several questions were asked but the leader of the team asked to them wait until the drilling commenced and they see all their questions being answered. When the water gushed out of the well, there was great jubilation and the chief declared that libation be poured at the stream at the god of the village to appreciate him for the new well. The team leader told the leaders that it was Jesus who gave them the well and not their god. The team introduced Jesus to them through the Jesus film and the entire village was in attendance with the exception of few and one hundred and thirteen gave their lives to Jesus."

Friday the 13th was certainly not unlucky for the people living in Lumah Kala, Sierra. Here is an excerpt directly from their well report: The drilling of the new well in this community has brought new joy and hope to the people. According to the confession of the village head, he said that when his second wife who went in search of water told him that she met a group of people who gave water to the community they gathered their water through a machine, he was surprised especially so when the wife told him that it was that water that she fetched. According to him, he drank from the water and automatically set out to meet this team to enquirer about the possibility of getting a well through them. He approached the leader of the [Water of Life] team with the promise that if they could them water, they will in exchange give them land. The leader of the team responded by saying that they don’t need land but they will give them the water with no condition. The chief was happy about the news and when they say water gushed out from the new well, there was celebration and on the handing over speech, the team leader introduced Jesus to the people and all of them accepted him as their Lord and personal Savior.

Laxmi came to the village of Jaggayyapet Mandal in hopes of marital bliss, but all of her hopes were dampened after learning of the severe water shortage in her village. Her son and daughter were both born amid great tensions over the water supply. Government water supply tankers arrived irregularly. When they did not show, she had to make the long trip with other women from her village several times each day to try and find enough water from various sources for her family. This was not the life she had imagined for herself. After Pastor Praveen arranged for a Water of Life bore well in her village, she heaved a great sigh of relief. She heard about Jesus, and immediately knew that God had seen her struggle. She, along with her entire family, were baptized. With tears in her eyes, she conveyed her heartfelt thanks to Pastor Praveen and offered prayers of thanksgiving to God.

God continues to prove how wide His love reaches. The Masoko village in Sierra Leone struggled daily for clean water. Health workers regularly had to visit this village to combat outbreaks of diarrhea. Drilling the new water well made an impact, but sharing the Gospel has made an even bigger one. Pa Yamba Thallay founded this village and was a commanding a platoon of the local militia fighting during the Civil War. As a chief in the traditionalist poro society, he has said he has the power to disappear and appear - an ability he used to conquer the rebels during the war. However, Jesus continues to change everything. Pa Yamba Thallay heard the good news of Christ, accepted the gospel with his entire family, and lead the way for 32 members in his village to be baptized. Thank you for your support in making this happen and praise God!

Boy's Town Community, Liberia was founded in 1969 by a group of boys who decided to open an eight room dormitory for people of their ages along the highway leading to the airport. This community has grown from the small group of boys to over 600 people. However, there was still not a good source of water in the community. Most often, people would cross the main highway headed to the airport to collect water. Many of their children have died from being struck by cars along the road. Also, many were drinking from an open well which was filled with rusty nails and old clothing. Last month, Water of Life came to this village and drilled a new bore well. This community has literally gone from death to life by no longer having to cross a busy highway or drink from a polluted well. During the dedication ceremony, the community chairperson remarked, "We give God the glory for Water of Life to come and save our lives from these health hazards."

The pastor of the Saluknoor Village in India used to tell his congregation to offer prayers to Jesus to give them water. Now they believe that God heard their prayers and sent Rev. Praveen (Water of Life's Indian partner) to give them water. For the last few weeks since the bore well was inaugurated, people say that good things have been happening in their village. Families who had left the village have now returned home. One older woman had previously lost her sight and was being treated as a burden. She could not move without physical help. Since receiving the gift of clean water, this woman has regained some of her sight and is able to move a little without help. The villagers have attributed these things to Jesus' mercy on them. Most of this village have now been converted to Christianity and are all attending church regularly.
