Water Wells in Zambia, Africa

Wayne Eaves, JMM Africa Outreach 

Hand of Hope is partnering with Overland Missions in Zambia, Africa to dig wells for people in the region who do not readily have access to clean water. Overland Missions equips their teams with the skills they will need to go out into the community to share the gospel and dig fresh water wells. The location of each well is carefully assessed and chosen. Before a location is even considered, the Overland Missions teams share the gospel and evangelize in the community. Their goal is to ensure they will have a good relationship in the local villages and on-going partnerships with people who will subsequently use and maintain the wells.

Seven wells funded by Hand of Hope have now been completed. These wells will make an impact in the daily lives and, more importantly, make a huge difference in the health of the people they serve. Providing fresh water seems like something so simple, but when you hear the people in these rural villages tell you about how “God has brought them water” you begin to understand how something so simple is also so very powerful.
Hand of Hope is the missions arm of Joyce Meyer Ministries. Our goal is simply to help as many hurting people as we possibly can, to alleviate human suffering and to help Christians grow in their faith.
