Being poor never kept Sadhana and Edhas from a party lifestyle: They sold wine for a living and drank without restraint at home. The couple’s addiction to alcohol was matched only by their devotion to drugs and their many gods.
But their lives were about to be turned upside down by something completely mundane: water.
Like millions in South Asia, Sadhana and Edhas struggled to find clean water for drinking, cooking and cleaning. When they heard that a local pastor could get them a water filter for free, they were eager to find out more.
Clean Water Turns to Friendship
Pastor Aabheer was excited to see the couple at his door and listened intently as they explained their problems. He took the opportunity to share the love of Jesus with them and decided to do what he could to help.
After sending word to his leaders, Pastor Aabheer received a brand new BioSand water filter to give to Sadhana and Edhas. Now they could have purified water whenever they wanted it.
The grateful couple was happy to continue building a relationship with Pastor Aabheer. As they became closer friends, Sadhana and Edhas began to visit the pastor’s house frequently, listening as he shared the Good News with them each time.
What they learned about Jesus was unlike anything they’d heard before, and over time, they decided they wanted to embrace Him the same way Pastor Aabheer had.
Together, the couple began to follow Jesus. Now they are growing in their faith, and instead of drowning their cares with alcohol and drugs, their drink of choice is Jesus, the Living Water.
