What I love about my job is that I get to see how the global Church responds to crises like COVID-19, demonstrating the good news of the gospel. While the pandemic has brought the world to its knees, church leaders and members around the world are living out their calling as the hands and feet of Christ.
In Northern Sumatra, Indonesia, one of Water Mission’s church partners hosted a COVID-19 awareness training and handwashing demonstration. The educational program and resources that Water Mission developed and that the church helped to implement are essential to combating the spread of the virus.
At this educational program, the congregation was also able to share about Jesus’ redemptive love. After attending the training and hearing God’s word, local community leaders committed to providing safe water containers for the community’s handwashing needs.
Reflecting on their partnership with Water Mission, a pastor said, “People can get safe water that is close to home. We are happy because we can live healthy lives. Now, we have access to safe water and we know how to wash our hands properly.” The adults and children in the congregation can wash their hands before entering the church because Water Mission has provided handwashing facilities.
With your faithful support and prayers, Water Mission can share safe water and the Living Water with thousands more people in some of the most under-resourced communities in the world. Together, we can be salt and light during a difficult time.
