Living Water through the Bottled Water Ministry
Preposterous! Ridiculous! Absurd! This idea defies human understanding!
These are the kinds of words that people must have used when a certain Samaritan woman ran to share her excitement with them. “Come hear this guy! Come to the well and see for yourself! He told me everything I’ve ever done. Could this be the Messiah?”
More than Jesus’ ability to relate the Samaritan woman’s past, was His bodacious statement about living water…Jesus answered, “Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again, but whoever drinks the water I give them will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give them will become in them a spring of water welling up to eternal life.” John 4:13-14
What if we could be a part of providing both the water that is essential for all life forms and the Living Water that comes through a relationship with Jesus Christ?
We CAN! The 2017 Bottled Water Drive will be used to support two different ministry areas:
-Providing cases of water to Lansing City Rescue Mission and the Volunteers of America Homeless Shelters in Lansing. We will also be conducting a “Prayer Walk” on June 21st at 4:30 pm to distribute cold bottles of water and pray with those we meet.
– Providing solar-powered audio Bibles (called Treasures) to our missionaries in Jos, Nigeria. These Bibles are translated into the primary languages of the Nigerian people in the Jos area. (There are over 400 languages in Nigeria!) These Bible Treasures can bring God’s word- His Living Water- to people who cannot read it for themselves. Want to know more?
