Water filter meets family needs, ignites father’s faith

WILL POINT, TX – Gospel for Asia (GFA World) founded by KP Yohannanserved as a model for many charities such as Gospel for Asia Canadato help the poor and needy around the world, explaining how, thanks to the distribution of gifts from GFA World, a water filter was able to meet the needs of a family and ignite the faith of a father.

With a BioSand water filter like this, Kadience (not pictured) and her family can have clean water and experience God’s love for them.

A wave of embarrassment washed over Kadience as she held out Gospel for Asia (GFA) pastor Laszlo the cloudy glass of water. Kadience could barely see through. Shocked by the quality of the water, Pastor Laszlo looked up at Kadience.

“Isn’t there a borehole where you can get good water from?” He asked.

Kadience looked at her husband, who reflected her embarrassment.

“We only have one hand pump fixed in a public place, but the water is not clean,” they replied.

As difficult as it may be to imagine yourself in Kadience’s shoes, her situation is not uncommon. In South Asia, an estimated 68-84% of water sources are contaminated, resulting in more than 134 million people without access to safe drinking water.[1] For those individuals and families like Kadience’s, the chance to clean water changes life.

A working family

Kadience lived with her husband and son in a small village in the hills of South Asia where she grew up following the traditional religion of her culture. But after God miraculously healed her son of pneumonia, Kadience put her trust in Jesus. Since then, Kadience had regularly attended her local church led by Pastor Laszlo, who had prayed diligently for her son’s healing.

Kadience and her husband worked as day labourers, building mud houses. Despite the income they earned from their work, the family struggled to access clean water, which put them at high risk of contracting a host of waterborne diseases.

Clean water at last

After seeing the family’s urgent need for clean water, Pastor Laszlo shared his concerns with church leaders and was able to give Kadience and her family a BioSand water filter. The family was thrilled to receive the water filter! They immediately started using it and enjoying their clean water with gratitude.

“I am grateful to God, who provided us with a good water filter,” Kadience said. “We have a small hand pump in our village. We collect the water from there and put it into the BioSand water filter. Thanks to this filter, we now get clean and pure water.

After observing his wife’s unwavering faith and the Lord’s provision, Kadience’s husband realized that there was a God who provided for all their needs. With the donation of a water filter, Kadience and her family’s need for clean water were met, and they were reminded of the powerful truth that God loves them and cares about all their needs..
