Living in and by the open sea and yet having no drinking water can seem absurd. However, this is true for many families in the Moken islands. One of our ministry partners discovered at least four locations where families in the Moken islands are struggling to find a good drinking water source. So, our ministry partner’s team set up a water purification system in these areas for the community. These families enjoy clean water today.
Spiritually, many people today are in a situation like the people on this island, having no real drinkable water. The people at the time of Jesus searched for the true Savior who would quench their thirst for the purpose and meaning of life. A Samaritan woman was one of them. Based on the water from the well, Jesus helped her find the true living water saying “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 4:14).
Let’s pray that the islanders will find Jesus and drink the living water from Him like the Samaritan woman did.
