One of every ten children dies of diarrheal diseases in this area of Southeast Asia because their homes and schools have no access to clean water. Other children are chronically sick, dehydrated and unable to thrive because of these conditions. Your gift will provide ceramic water filters to homes and schools to stop these preventable diseases and deaths. Just $25 will provide one filter to a family or classroom, installed by believers who share the gospel with the family and community.
Christian workers trained in community health and evangelism return to each home or school to help change the filter as a demonstration of God’s love, care and compassion and again share the gospel of salvation through Jesus. Clean water changes lives physically and opens the door to change lives spiritually as people learn of the Living Water.
Project coordinators identify rural villages with no access to clean water and assess their needs. Local believers then transport water filters to schools and homes and offer them at affordable rates; widows and those who cannot pay each receive a free filter. The team of believers follows up with each community to teach them to clean and care for the filters and to share the gospel again. This project leads to changed communities, healthy schools, better futures, and many opportunities to hear the Good News. Give now to help children and families in Southeast Asia thrive physically and spiritually as they receive clean drinking water and learn about Jesus, the Living Water.

From the skyscrapers of Hong Kong and vast plains of Mongolia to smoky rainforests hiding winding rivers edged by golden sands, the natural beauty and long history of these Asia-Pacific Rim countries testify to God’s creative hand. This vast region houses four of the most populous global cities, as well as the country with the world's largest nominal population of Muslims.
Spirituality swirls through cities and countryside like the smoke from temple incense sticks. Buddhists, Muslims, Hindus, animists, Daoists and ancestor worshipers live here, comprising 851 unreached people groups who have never heard that freedom is found in Christ. Pray for divine appointments for Christian workers to share that Jesus is the way to peace with God and eternal life. Ask God to glorify His name among the peoples of the Asian Pacific Rim Peoples affinity.
