Story number 4 for 5 May 2003

(International)–Meanwhile, a ministry that provides clean safe drinking water for villages in Jesus name has a new leader. Jerry Wiles is Living Water International’s new president. “We have offices in 16 countries and projects going in about 50 some odd countries. 1.1 billion people in the world today do not have clean safe drinking water and more than 30,000 people die every day because of water borne diseases. One of the things I’ll be focusing my attention is developing more partnerships.” According to Wiles, the only thing keeping Living Water from expanding further and having an incredible impact for the kingdom is funding. Wiles says it doesn’t cost much to help one person physically and spiritually. “And, we’ve broken it down to basically a $1 will support one person to have clean water for one year. So, you break it down that’s a pretty high impact opportunity. And, of course, we do more than drill wells. We’re involved in providing the message of Christ.” Pray that additional funding will allow for expanded outreach.
