Myanmar church initiates clean water evangelism after well installation

Myanmar church initiates clean water evangelism after well installation

by | 12 Aug, 2016

Community members near 4 Mile Church of the Nazarene have been praying for an accessible and stable clean water supply. Their prayers were finally answered in June.

In cooperation with Nazarene Compassionate Ministries, the church was able to successfully install a tube well in the community. In the past, the community had only a hand-dug well on the church campus, which dries up every summer. As a result, people around the church had to collect water for drinking and cleaning from distant wells. Some even had to buy water from sellers. With the new tube well, the community has easily accessible access to clean water.

Now that there is readily available water, 4 Mile Church can host more ministries and events, especially during the summer. Since the church is able to provide the local people access to clean water, they are able to reach out to them and build better relationships.

Jubilee Thanga, zone coordinator in Yangon, said the well is now open to everyone in the village. Many are coming to get drinking water.

“I hope and pray that Pastor Ma Wah and the 4 Mile Church leaders will have a wider contact with new people and plant small groups to plant churches in Taungoo Area," he said. "I am planning to help the church in their strategy of clean water evangelism and to conduct outreach programs in this very well.”

The Church of the Nazarene in Myanmar is grateful to God for blessing them with people who made the water project possible.
