People are alive and healthy today because of one organization's resolve to share the gospel and provide clean water.

GFA World's Daniel Punnose says the "Jesus Wells" are providing fresh and clean water to more than 39 million people in Asia and Africa.

"Each Jesus Well has hundreds of people showing up every single day," Punnose relays. "It is really their means of life and survival in many of these rural places. Millions and millions and millions of people have been helped and benefited and kept healthy because of the water projects that we have put in."

He asserts that GFA World's work does not end with the wells' installations.

"It opens a door for us to be able to share about Christ's love in a very unique way because we can show them Christ's love tangibly and practically," Punnose states. "They ask us, 'Why are you doing this?' and we tell them, 'Because of the love of Christ.' And it just really breaks their heart that someone would care that much for their needs when no one else cares about them."

Each well displays a plaque quoting Jesus in the gospel of John: "Whoever drinks of the water that I shall give him will never thirst."

This year, as an estimated 2.2 billion people on the planet lack safe drinking water, GFA World aims to bring the wells and the gospel to their 40 millionth person.
