How did we get started in clean water projects?
In 2010 our first water ministry partner, Design Outreach, approached us about creating a monitoring system that could monitor the health of their LifePump™, installed in remote locations in Africa. We took on the challenge and created the spigot-mounted remote water monitoring system for pumps. As word spread, other ministries approached us about monitoring their clean water systems. So we repackaged the monitor for pumps into a unit that could be used in a wider variety of water system applications.
Why do we care about providing clean water systems?
According to the World Health Organization, hundreds of millions of people worldwide still use unimproved drinking water sources, including unprotected wells and springs, and surface water. Globally, at least 2 billion people use a drinking water source contaminated with faeces. Contaminated drinking water is estimated to cause 485,000 diarrhoeal deaths each year.
Does monitoring really make a difference?
Listen as Eddie Andersen, a missionary in northern Kenya, shares how our SonSetLink monitor helps him in his ministry.
How does this advance the Gospel?
We believe that everyone in this world should have the opportunity to hear the Good News about Jesus dying on the cross for them. Clean water projects help meet the physical needs of those people, which then builds trust and opens doors of opportunity to share the gospel and meet their spiritual needs.
We believe the words of Jesus: “Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again, but whoever drinks the water I give them will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give them will become in them a spring of water welling up to eternal life.” (John 4:13-15 NIV)
Who uses our Monitors?
We are currently working with 15+ international NGOs. We continue receiving requests for assistance from new ministries. These are groups who use clean water projects to advance the gospel.
