Our Mission ...

... Jesus stood and said in a loud voice, “Let anyone who is thirsty come to me and drink. Whoever believes in me, as Scripture has said, Rivers of Living Water will flow from within them.

~ John 7:37-38

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Our organization was born out of a desire to follow God. Jesus said, "I only do what I see the Father doing." We totally agree. We have seen the Lord go before us and open doors. He has invited us to partner with Him. His heart is towards the Orphans and Widows.

"Religion that God our Father accepts

as pure and faultless is this:

to look after Orphans and Widows in their distress

and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world."

~ James 1:27

Over the past few years, our founders have adopted 5 children from Ethiopia. These beautiful children lived in conditions that are unheard of in our country. Even the poorest of poor in the US, live better than the majority of people in Ethiopia.

It has been estimated that there are over 147 million orphans in the world. In Ethiopia, out of a population of 78 million, 4.8 million are orphans. The highest life expectancy is an average of 50 years.

But most children don't make it past their first birthday, due to malnourishment, malaria and HIV/AIDS. The ones who do make it, many of those die before their 5th birthday, often due to the lack of clean water and malnutrition. Many die from diarrhea, caused by parasites and worms from drinking dirty water.

They need hope.

Women are abandoned or lose husbands to death. Many are poor or sick themselves and are unable to work and care for their own children.

They need help.

"Once our eyes are opened, we can't pretend we don't know what to do. God who keeps our hearts and weighs our souls, knows that we know and holds us responsible to act."

~ Proverbs 24:12

Our heart's desire at Rivers of Living Water is to spread the love of Jesus through church planting, acts of kindness, child sponsorship and widow assistance ... to help Orphans and Widows in need, wherever the Lord leads us. And He has lead us right back to Ethiopia.

With His help, our Mission is:

To help Orphans and Widows in Need, both domestically and internationally. Currently our primary focus is Ethiopia.

To provide Clean Water by placing water wells and clean water solutions where there is the greatest of need in the remote villages.

To offer Living Water by bringing the Good News of Jesus Christ to children and families in these villages, through love and outreach, evangelism, discipleship, planting new Christian churches and sending out trained in-country missionary pastors to serve.

To find Sponsors for Orphaned & Fatherless Children. To offer them a hope and a chance for a good future, including school, clothing, food, medical attention and discipleship.

To offer a helping hand to Widows, by way of grants or training for Micro Businesses so they can support their families.

To organize and send Mission Teams to villages and orphanages with clothing, shoes, supplies, and help for the ones who remain.

To eliminate the financial barrier by offering Adoption grants for Christian families who have the desire to open their hearts and home to adopt orphans.

To pray for the sick, and see them get healed.

To offer a cup of water in Jesus' name.

To be the hands and feet of Jesus.

... Jesus answered her, “If you knew the gift of God ... you would have asked and he would have given you Living Water ... 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 4:11,13
