Springs of Water in Bumai

Here in the States it is easy for us to take for granted our access to water. If we need a drink we turn on the faucet or even grab a bottle of purified water. If we need to take a shower or wash our hands we turn a knob and the water flows. That is not the case in Bumai.

In fact, quite a bit of water is needed for mixing the concrete and for curing it as well. The problem is there isn’t just a hose they can turn on. The well were most of the community goes for water is a light walk away, but with a few gallons of water on your head that can be a big deal. Thankfully, a group of women and children offered their help in bringing water from the spring to the site as you can see in the photos below.

“Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again; but whoever drinks the water I shall give will never thirst; the water I shall give will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life.”
John 4:13-14

I challenge you to think about that the next time you turn on the faucet. Not as a guilt trip, but as a reminder for how easy we have it and what a gift water is to our lives.
