Sharing Hope in Nepal
The SWIM team in Nepal was able to distribute chlorine to people in one of the slum areas in Nepal and show them how it works.
Devastating Floods Happening in Nepal
The floods from the Melamchi and Indravati Rivers have left 50 people missing, damaged the Melamchi drinking water dam, and all kinds of pools, plus completely destroying other parts of the region. The estimated loss is in the billions after the demolition of the river bank.
Sharing the Gospel Amidst the Bricks
A SWIM team member shared the Gospel with a family who lives in a bricks factory. The family was also given safe water drops.
Students Learn How to Produce the Chlorine
Students of a secondary school in Pokharbhinda, Nepal learned how to purify water and practiced producing chlorine with SWIM’s chlorine producing unit (CPU).
They have formed a team to produce chlorine every month for people in their villages.
Teachers also received dropper bottles for their personal use.
Why Support Safe Water International Ministries (SWIM)?
Because it is making a difference! One of the SWIM team members from Nepal, Ram Pukar, sent this post about how others are being helped in the Name of Jesus.
This family has accepted Jesus as their Savior and is coming to church with us! The man lost his sight when he was a child, so his daughter would lead him around on the street begging. His wife’s hands are paralyzed, so she can’t do anything with her hands. They have four kids and are very poor. One day the father was walking on the street, holding his daughter’s hand. As they were begging, they came to my house. I asked them about their life. God spoke in my heart to help them. I offered them food, gave them some clothes, and shared the Gospel with them. After meeting with me again, they received Jesus as their Savior!
Living under the poverty line, these ladies are being loved with the love of God by receiving needed winter clothes (scarves) as Christmas gifts.
Making Disciples in Nepal with SWIM Chlorine
Like everywhere around the world, the lockdown in Nepal due to the Corona virus is causing hardships for many people – but your support of SWIM is making a difference!
A SWIM team member sent a message saying, “By the grace of God, we are safe…It is a very hard life. No jobs, all are stuck at home, no sources of income. It is very difficult to live these days. Please pray for us.”
The SWIM team there, however, has not been idle during this time. His message continued with, “We are visiting our friends and relatives and sharing the love of Jesus, making disciples with SWIM chlorine! These days are filled with giving discipleship training to our people. Praise the Lord!”
