Reaching The Un-Reached Through Our Water Project
"And let our people also learn to engage in good deeds to meet pressing
needs, that they may not be unfruitful."
Here are some of
our pictures from our work in South Sudan.
Many people in East Africa, and certainly over the world, do not have
sufficient clean water. These pictures in South Sudan are representative of
the conditions there. They also tell a story of a portion of the work
that we do and the reason we call our organization
While living in South Sudan, Mike Vincent supervised and participated in the
repair or replacement of over 40 hand pumps. As you can see from the
pictures above, the existing water source was very bad and the access
difficult. We found that many people carried water a long distance.
Some carried water as far as 10 kilometers (over 6 miles) each way, each
The community is required to participate in the repair or replacement of the
hand pump so that they will have a vested interest in their water source.
When an Afridev hand pump is installed tools, spare parts and training are
provided so that future repairs can be made by the community. The wells are
chlorinated and hygiene training is provided so that it is possible for the
community to maintain a clean source of water. Of course, the kids are
always ready to pose for pictures!
As we have said, this benevolent act will never overshadow
evangelism and discipleship. At each well our message is simple, we always
share with the community that we do this work because God loves them, we love
them and are here to tell them about His love. We then present the Gospel
and provide a time for the people to accept Christ as their personal Savior.
We then pray
with them a prayer of commitment. Please visit our
