Alex Jimenez has been running our appropriate technology site in Santiago for the past five years. He hit a HUGE milestone earlier this month when he delivered his 200th water filter, and as of this week, he’s delivered 224 water filters!
This milestone is wonderful news because it means we have provided 224 families with filtered water. As a result, Alex has been able to connect with these families to share about God’s love and mercy.
Many of the families in Alex’s community do not have running water and are forced to use water from a local canal to bathe, clean, and cook. This water is often contaminated and unsafe to consume. By providing water filters at a low cost, we are able to meet a physical need, but we’re also able to meet a spiritual need. Each water filter gives us the opportunity to share the love of Christ by praying for the families and talking about Jesus.
We rejoice in being able to provide the physical water that our body needs in addition to the spiritual living water that provides us with salvation! Today, we hope that you’re reminded of Jesus’ living water and the truth we find in John 7:38 — “Whoever believes in me, as Scripture has said, rivers of living water will flow from within them.”
