Living Waters for the World is a mission project of the Synod of Living Waters, Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) that sends short term mission teams to install systems that deliver clean water. A news article describes the grateful response in one barrio in Matanzas, Cuba: “In November 2011 Living Water for the World installed one of its water purification systems at Prince of Peace Church, and life for the people of this community changed dramatically. “As soon as the system was installed,’ Pastor Leticia Ramos says, ‘the people in the community said, “Hey, the church has living water!” and started coming.’

In the Sudan, Ginghamsburg United Methodist Church has been drilling water wells for the past decade. Water wells for a country torn apart by war and civil unrest. Water wells for a thirsty people. Mike Slaughter, Senior pastor, said every village with a new well flourished. People came, people helped each other, and people became a community. Living water does that.

One may have city water, and own water wells here in Karnes County. One can turn on the tap and get water. Easy. One’s life isn’t in danger when they walk into the kitchen for a glass of water or to make a pot of coffee. Almost without thinking they fill their glasses with water.

Living water makes a huge difference in the lives of the people of Cuba, the Sudan and everyone. Jesus offers everyone something they cannot get on their own. He offers everyone living water, life sustaining water, water that fills them, washes them and heals them. Water that makes them whole. Once you have tasted living water nothing else will satisfy.

The United Methodist Church is located at 201 N Esplanade in Karnes City. Sunday worship is at 11 a.m.
