When Laul got sick with typhoid fever he lost his livelihood and couldn’t provide for his five kids. No doctors or treatments could help him. But when his village received a Jesus Well—Laul’s life changed in more ways than one.
Lual was stricken with a waterborne illness known as typhoid fever. Aching pains, high fever and poor appetite had overtaken his frail body. No matter how many doctors he visited or how many treatments the father of five underwent, there was still nothing that brought him back to good health. Laul’s days plodded by as his illness stole away his livelihood and plunged his family into poverty.
The need for clean water in Asia is a desperate one. It is difficult to imagine the huge water crisis that many suffer on a daily basis, like Laul and the people of his village. By God’s grace, in 2016, GFA was able to provide 6,822 Jesus Wells in Asian communities. But this is only a drop in the bucket compared to the vital need of today.
