Jesus Wells Solve Village Leader’s Problems
Gospel for Asia
For Immediate Release
SOUTH ASIA (ANS) -- Poojan Manasi had many ideas for developing the village he lived in. As the village chief, he was in charge of solving all the problems in his area, so he set out to tackle each issue starting with the village’s lack of clean water.
Finding the Solution
Poojan searched for other possible solutions to this problem, but he kept running into dead ends. He was losing hope of meeting the villagers’ expectations and needs when he heard about Jesus Wells through Gospel for Asia’s Compassion Services ministry. He immediately met with the local GFA-supported pastor, Peter Goyary, to talk with him about the possibility of getting a well for his villagers.
Pastor Peter presented the need to his leaders. After surveying the village, they decided to install two Jesus Wells in Poojan’s village.
“The villagers were very happy to have the Jesus Wells,” explained a GFA field correspondent. “The village head was overjoyed because the Jesus Wells solved a big problem that he was unable to solve.”
Meeting More Than Just a Physical Need
Poojan was even interested in learning more about the God Peter served. He would listen intently whenever Peter shared the Good News with him and told him of God’s great love.
Today, Poojan and his family have committed their lives to Christ.
“They are living peaceful lives in the grace of the Lord Jesus,” the GFA correspondent said.
