It is now the two year anniversary since Living Water for the Thirsty was founded. We have seen God work in amazing ways during this time, and we are believing that He has many exciting things still ahead. I would like to provide you with an update of the work He is doing through LW4T.
Since our founding, God has used us to complete over 110 water well projects in Nepal. These projects have brought clean water to over 9,000 people, with thousands of them hearing the good news of the Gospel at well dedication ceremonies, and hundreds making decisions for Christ while being connected to the local church. Clean water is a blessing and something we celebrate, at the same time reaching people for Christ is why God formed this organization, and is what drives everything we do.
In September, God used this ministry to complete the first, of hopefully many mountain wells. This project was constructed in Western Nepal, in a very difficult to reach village. It required over 3,500 feet of pipe to be run from the nearest clean water source to the village, across different elevations and terrain. He has blessed LW4T to provide two water wells in this region, with one of them being for a school in the village that had no clean water on site prior to our visit. These projects are more expensive given the amount of labor and pipe needed, but are a great way to show the love of Jesus to those in need.
Discipleship training is ongoing, and is a huge part of the mission given to us by our Lord. We are equipping our church partners to provide the training without outside assistance. These leadership sessions have been provided to over 100 church leaders in three districts, with plans in motion where they can begin to work with hundreds of believers to equip them to make disciples and advance the Gospel for the glory of His name to many who have never heard.
As the end to the year rapidly approaches, we have an exciting blessing to announce. Mission Increase Foundation, a nationally run mission support organization, has a wonderful year end offer. They are matching all first time and monthly gifts, in addition to new campaigns up to $5,000. Many people think about giving at the end of the year, and this allows your gift to glorify Him to be multiplied and impact even more people in Nepal! To learn more, visit www.lw4t.org/donate in order to set up a one time or monthly tax deductible gift, or www.lw4t.org/campaigns in order to launch your new campaign today!
Finally, we are excited to announce another mission trip to Nepal, Lord willing, in March of 2018. If you would like to join us and see the impact the Lord is making with unreached people groups, now is the time to register. We are planning this trip for March 8th-18th, 2018. During this trip, you will have the opportunity to personally witness multiple well dedication ceremonies, help to encourage and equip our church partners, train and disciple young adults in a youth camp, and much more. If you have not been on a mission trip before, they can be worldview altering and life changing. If you want to learn more about taking a mission trip with us we are partnering with CCV (Christ’s Church of the Valley) for this trip in 2018. They will be hosting informational meetings early next year. If you are ready to go with us you can register for this trip by visiting this website.
For those of you who are supporting this work with prayers and donations, thank you. Your generosity and investment of time and resources is making a difference in meeting physical needs while expanding the gospel to unreached areas for the glory of His name. If you have yet to partner with us, we challenge you to join us. There are countless people in urgent physical and spiritual need that we can reach one at a time together for the Glory of God!
