South Asia (MNN) — One in nine people worldwide has no access to clean water. What those individuals do have access to looks and smells like something you’d find in a dirty fishbowl.

This month, Gospel for Asia (GFA) is highlighting the need for clean water in South Asia. They’re praying for enough funding to dig 5,000 more Jesus Wells which will bring clean water and the Gospel to poor villages.

GFA-supported Gospel workers who dig Jesus Wells don’t limit their clean water to Christian families. Entire communities are invited to use the well, regardless of religious background. As Christ’s love is demonstrated to nonbelievers through the provision for basic needs, hearts soften and become receptive to the Gospel.

So far, GFA has raised 68% of their financial goal. If you can help them cross the finish line before 2014 comes to a close, click here.

Pray for enough funding to dig 5,000 Jesus Wells. Pray that the provision of clean water will improve health and open doors in communities to share the Gospel.
