Jabbar, 50, and his wife, Sachi, 45, suffered like the rest of the villagers, but Sachi even more so. Severe pain shot through her stomach. It hurt so bad she underwent surgery twice to alleviate the pain. Neither surgery worked.
One day, while in a neighboring village, Sachi caught the sound of voices praying. She went to the church of Gospel for Asia (GFA)-supported pastor Mrigesh, and he prayed for her. He later shared with her and her family about Jesus and His great love, and as he continued praying for Sachi’s healing, the Lord healed her!
As Pastor Mrigesh came to know how the village suffered from dirty water, he also began praying for an opportunity to drill a Jesus Well nearby. The Lord answered through the generosity of believers around the world.
A Jesus Well now pumps fresh water for Jabbar and Sachi’s village. They have clean water to wash their bodies, clean water to scrub their dishes and clean water to quench their thirst.
Through what the Lord did, Jabbar and Sachi and another family saw His love for them and decided for themselves to trust in Him. They gather for weekly worship services, and other villagers join them for regular prayer meetings.
