In this brief time of radio – available for hearing right now — Dr. Jerry Wiles shares exciting, amazing stories of the works of God.
He tells of how God even used “unsanitary drinking water!” A short-term church mission team to Africa from Houston in the 1990s returned home, appalled about the people there were often using for drinking water! That gave birth to “Living Water International,” with a mission of overseeing the digging of fresh-water wells worldwide for those in need.
Their mission was not just to provide fresh drinking water but also to bring the Living Water found in Jesus!
As of this writing, Living Water Intl (www.water.cc) has overseen the digging of more than 21,000 worldwide … in Jesus’ Name!
In the 1990s, there was an estimated 1,200,000,000 (1.2 billion) in the world who did not have access to safe drinking water, that number is “down” to 700,000,000 (700 million). 500,000,000 (million) more worldwide now receive acceptable drinking water than in the 1990s!
Jesus-followers have been a significant reason for that remarkable truth!!
While Dr. Wiles maintains his connection with Living Water as President Emeritus, he now maintains a focus on the world’s majority, those who primarily live, communicate, and best comprehend through “orality.”
