We are fortunate in America. If we’re thirsty we can reach for another 12 oz bottle of water and enjoy. This isn’t the case for those in Sierra Leone. Clean drinking water is a huge need. Many die from water born diseases from unclean water supplies.
I remember at the beginning of 2009 thinking, “Wouldn’t it be awesome if God would open up a door for Victory’s Crossing to drill a well in Africa.” I thought about it. Talked with my wife about it. Prayed about it. Little did I know that through my friend John Thompson, I would meet Pastor Gregory Bangura from the Ivory Coast this year.
Pastor Gregory was with us this weekend as our special speaker. He stayed in our home. We toured the White House and had much time to talk and dream. The short of it is he has contacts that drill wells. He’s going to help us sponsor a well to be dug in October of 2010. We’ll dig this well next to a church. This is a great way not only to help a community with a tangible need. It is a way to bring salvation in Jesus name as the church shows love.
Love opens all kinds of doors for the gospel. This well will be the first of many. These will be wells of salvation!
