Imagine for just a moment: The water that flows through your filtered refrigerator to your glass of ice or that pours from your sink faucet to the cooking pan is gone.
Instead, you heft a bucket in each hand and walk to the closest river, which is 300 meters (0.19 miles) away. When you return home with the heavy buckets, you finally take a deep drink to quench your thirst. You know the water you just drank could also contain disease-causing bacteria. But is there any other option?
For far too many, like 60-year-old Sabar, the answer is no. Drinking unclean water is a daily reality.
Struggle for Clean Water
Every day, Sabar trekked to the river to collect his water supply. Unfortunately, the water was not safe for consumption. Sabar often fell sick and his overall health suffered. But there was no other source of water for his village, so he continued to use the unfiltered river water.
One day, as Sabar made his way to the river, he met GFA workers Jamir and Vazir. They greeted him kindly and talked with him about how Jesus can provide for all his needs.
Naturally, Sabar thought of his village’s need for clean water. After all, he wasn’t the only one who suffered from the unclean water.
“If your Jesus will provide our needs, it will be very helpful to us,” Sabar told Jamir and Vazir.
