Thirsting for Hope - Sierra Leone

Thirsting for Hope - Sierra Leone

Water—it refreshes, cleanses, and renews and because of it, Global Outreach Mission has a door wide open to share the Gospel. When we bring clean water wells to villagers, we are received with eager and listening ears. We tell them about the Living Water and explain why we care for them. Indeed, this is a ministry of water!

Nearly half of Sub-Saharan Africans do not have access to clean water. In fact, an average of 115 people in Africa die every hour from diseases associated with contaminated water, poor sanitation, and poor hygiene. Villagers walk miles each way to gather water, but many times it only brings sickness or death. By being stewards of our God-given resources and skills, Global Outreach Mission has been able to establish 215 easily
accessible water wells in numerous villages in Sierra Leone. One freshwater well reaches at least one thousand people—as many also come in from neighboring areas. This means that we have been able to reach over 215,000 individuals with clean water!

By bringing clean water in the name of Jesus, villagers who have followed folk religions, Islam, and Hinduism are seeing the love of Jesus for the first time and are eager to learn more. Hardened hearts are opening, eager ears are listening—and through the faithful example and teaching of our missionaries and water well workers—we are experiencing God working in miraculous ways. There is much fruit from our labor in Sierra Leone. Will you join us?

It costs approximately $6,300 US to produce and oversee a clean water well in each village. Recently, we have also been able to repair and upgrade many old open wells that were built by CARE before the civil war years (1991-2002). We have targeted another 10 sites where we greatly desire to bring fresh water. At these locations, the impact will be far-reaching, and there will be many people to hear the Gospel. This requires a total of $63,000. All pledges or one time gifts will be a blessing for us to accomplish this goal in 2019.

We’re reminded of the potent words from Romans 10, “How then shall they call on Him in whom they have not believed? And how shall they believe in Him of whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear without a preacher? And how shall they preach unless they are sent?”

Will you prayerfully consider making a monthly pledge or one-time gift today? You will play a vital role in bringing the Word of Jesus to impoverished villages in Sierra Leone through the ministry of fresh water.
