SWIM is helping with safe water professional ID cards and sending them into challenging fields.”

Prayers Needed to Fight Demonic Forces
This request came from the North India SWIM team:
Please keep us in your prayers. In Punjab, we have many upcoming meetings and discipleship training programs scheduled, but we are facing technical issues that we have never experienced before. Sometimes the microscope or the projector doesn’t work when we are presenting, but after the meeting everything looks normal. It’s like a demonic disturbance. We need more prayers, binding in the Holy Spirit. This is the time in India when there is a lot of idol worship happening.

Sharing the Gospel with Salt
In Old Testament times, God used salt to save people. The first miracle the prophet Elisha did involved salt.
According to 2 Kings 2:19-22 (NIV):The people of the city said to Elisha, “Look, our lord, this town is well situated, as you can see, but the water is bad and the land is unproductive.”
“Bring me a new bowl,” he said, “and put salt in it.” So they brought it to him.
Then he went out to the spring and threw the salt into it, saying, “This is what the LORD says: ‘I have healed this water. Never again will it cause death or make the land unproductive.’” And the water has remained pure to this day, according to the word Elisha had spoken.
God took care of His people in Old Testament times and He is still taking care of His people today.
Rajasthan, India is a desert-like area. Many people do not drink enough water, due to sickness that comes with the water. These two factors contribute to some people being susceptible to kidney stones.
Consider this man’s testimony as to a huge benefit of using safe water. He told about how he suffered with kidney stones and none of the medicines he tried helped him. After using SWIM safe water, his condition was relieved completely! He praised the Lord – and we praise Him too!
A SWIM member in India commented, “This is the second testimony we have received. Another benefit of the SWIM chlorine. It’s amazing how people have benefited in ways we don’t know.”
Isn’t it amazing something as simple as salt gives an opportunity to share the love of Jesus? Thank You, Jesus!
