Water Well for India

The old man stepped forward and said, "I'm not interested in what you're saying. We don't need nice words, we need clean water."

Mike Viser told me this story on the Beer with Jesus  podcast. He told of how he promised this man to get him water--dig a well--within a year.

The man said, "Why should I believe you? Many have come and promised to bring water. But they left and never returned."

But Mike made good on his promise. That was 2001. The organization he started, Wells for Life, now has over 700 wells completed in India.

You don't often get a chance to change the world and save lives. Giving clean water to those without it does both. It changes their world.

At the end of our conversation, I told Mike that our podcast would sponsor a well. 

Your gift will be used to bring a well of clean water to a village in India. Wells for Life is a grassroots organization with few administrative expenses. Listen to Mike's story and you'll hear his heart to make a difference for the people in India.

You can join with us and change the world for the people in one more village this year. Giving even a few dollars makes a difference when there are hundreds of us involved.
