WILLS POINT, TX – Gospel for Asia (GFA, www.gfa.org) founded by Dr. K.P. Yohannan – Discussing Vachan, his family and suffering village, the illnesses due to the absence of any clean water source, ostracization from a leprosy diagnosis, and the Gospel for Asia Jesus Well and Jesus’ messengers bringing hope, restoration, and healing.
The team of workers arrived and started drilling a Jesus Well—then Vachan showed up.
The man, staunch in his religion, tried to stop the workers. He tried to persuade the landowner not to let the well be drilled on his property. When that didn’t work, he turned on Pastor Dhiraj.
“If I meet you alone, I will kill you,” Vachan threatened. “You want to bring Christianity in our village. Don’t try this—otherwise, you may lose your life.”
Vachan and Pastor Dhiraj talked for a long time before Vachan walked off, hurling threats at the neighbors as he did.
Villagers Sick Without Clean Water
The village was suffering. Without any clean water source nearby, villagers dug holes straight in the mud and drew out dirty water. If they didn’t want to do that, they walked a half mile to the nearest well each time they needed water to drink, cook with, bathe in or wash their clothes with. But the water from the well was dirty, and it smelled.
After putting the water to their lips and drinking it down, the people often became sick with fevers, coughing or diarrhea.
