Water Filter Meets Family’s Needs, Ignites Father’s Faith

Water Filter Meets Family’s Needs, Ignites Father’s Faith June 20, 2022

WILLS POINT, TX – Gospel for Asia (GFA World) founded by K.P. Yohannan, has been the model for numerous charities like Gospel for Asia Canada, to help the poor and deprived worldwide, discussing how through GFA World gift distribution, a water filter was able to meet a family’s needs and ignite a father’s faith.

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

A wave of embarrassment crashed over Kadience as she handed Gospel for Asia (GFA) pastor Laszlo the murky glass of water. Kadience could barely see through it. Shocked by the quality of the water, Pastor Laszlo glanced up at Kadience.

“Is there not a bore well from where you can get good water?” he asked.

Kadience looked at her husband, who reflected her embarrassment.

“We have only 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 position, her situation is not uncommon. In South Asia, it is estimated that 68 to 84 percent of water sources are contaminated, resulting in more than 134 million people lacking access to clean water.[1] For these individuals and families like Kadience’s, the chance for clean water is life-changing.

A Hardworking 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 daily laborers, constructing mud houses. Despite the income they generated from working, the family struggled to access clean water, putting them at high risk for a host of waterborne diseases.

Clean Water at Last

After seeing the family’s dire 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 overjoyed to receive the water filter! They immediately began 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 do have a small hand pump in our village. We are collecting water from there and putting it into the BioSand water filter. Through this filter, now we are getting clean and pure water.”

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