Well of Life: Part 3
11/15/2020 Washington, D.C. (International Christian Concern) – Christians in the Nineveh Plains have been rebuilding from the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) attacks since 2014. ISIS displaced millions, destroyed infrastructure, and intended to commit genocide against Christians.
ISIS specifically targeted water foundations to make surviving in the desert impossible. International Christian Concern (ICC) gave restorative aid to 10 Christian families living on God’s grace. Christians are returning and bringing life back to their homeland.
Trusting that God will provide clean water, they dug through the rock with metal piping and eventually found abundant water, supporting all ten families. By digging a well, Christians living in this community have a better quality of life as they seek to rebuild their lives locally following the destruction of ISIS.
“Just less than 100 meters from the well, there is a group of apartments that were not useful for a long time because there is no source of water there. The owner of that building decided to take the initiative and offer free accommodation for Christians in the city since there is water now.”
It has restored confidence to those who consider returning to their homeland. These persecuted Christians do not live without hope. They know that the water they drink from this well will not eternally satisfy them.
Jesus said in John 4:13-14, “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.”
Thank you for your prayers that native Iraqi Christians are victorious in reclaiming their land from evil.
