Water Projects Fund 00-635

00-635-well

 

The most basic physical need is surely clean, safe water. Those who persecute Christians know this and sometimes use it against them. Nearly a hundred converts from Islam to Christianity in a village in Uzbekistan were refused access to drinking water. Twenty-two Vietnamese Christian families were forced to leave their village and settle in another area where there was no source of clean water. In Sri Lanka a pastor and his family were attacked by an angry mob and the well where they got their drinking water from was deliberately contaminated, causing children who drank it to fall ill.

A number of Barnabas Aid projects help to provide drinking water for Christian communities in situations of discrimination or persecution. Recent examples include 160 water filter systems in Pakistan at a cost of £5.50 (US$9; NZ$13; AU$10; €6) each, 80 wells in Sri Lanka costing £45 (US$75; NZ$103; AU$81; €50) each, and a grant of £25,690 (US$42,874; NZ$58,960; AU$46,218; €28,421) to provide clean running water and sanitation for five Christian villages in an Arab country.

    • “The cathedral in Damaturu now has only about 40 members instead of 450 members. The church in Potiskum now has only about 15 members instead of 500 members… the southern part of [Yobe state] is still very dangerous and most of the churches here have closed down.” A senior church leader in Nigeria wrote to Barnabas Aid in August about the impact on the Church of Boko Haram’s violence. Nevertheless Christians were still holding worship services every Sunday, discipling the young people and even commissioning pastors. Praise God for such perseverance, and pray that a Christian presence and witness may remain in north-east Nigeria. Subscribe to the prayer points rss feed Tue, Oct 2014 11:20
