Bringing clean water to communities in the Democratic Republic of the Congo

Clean water should be available to everyone. 

Seed

Most of us have unrestricted access to basic needs—namely, clean water. For so many others across the world, there is limited or zero access to safe, clean water. I want to help bring this resource to those that need it.

Sowing

I trust the Foundation in the faithful stewardship of my resources. I’m not sure the best way to invest into this clean water cause, but I gave the office a call and they explained the options. We decided to create a Donor Advised Fund so I can contribute regularly, and I know it will make a big difference over time!

We are serving in the Congo.

Story

Our President, Bill Junk, met a local pastor from an annual conference in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC). His name was Kyungu Bertin. Over the early development of their friendship, some needs were very apparent: overcoming the challenge of transportation to remote villages and dealing with the numerous health issues from dirty, unsafe water sources. These issues not only affect the quality of life for the communities in the DRC, but limit the effectiveness of pastors like Kyungu to reach people for the sake of the Gospel. Fortunately, there is something we are doing about it. Because of the generosity and action of donors, there are funds available to create solutions!

Rev. Bertin was aided with a motorbike and a vehicle because of the funds the Foundation has invested for this cause. He was a District Superintendent (DS) in his conference, and the increased mobility has allowed him to maintain healthy connections with the churches, as well as start many new faith communities!

During his time as a DS, he started over 30 churches in an area similar in size to the Oklahoma City Metro area.

The Foundation, in partnership with the Woodworth Endowment, has established 14 wells, and 10 more wells are planned for 2019.

For their communities, these wells are important not only as a source of safe water to use, but they bring people to know Jesus. Many of the wells are situated near church communities, so the fresh water is drawing people into experiencing the Living Water of Jesus Christ.

Having a heart to serve and reach others has led to a connection through the work of the Foundation. Now, people are being led from clean water to the Living Water.
