UNTIL 100% OF PEOPLE IN A COMMUNITY HAVE ACCESS TO CLEAN WATER.
What do you saturate your life with?
For many of us it’s social media, or staying busy, or climbing the corporate ladder. It’s so easy to become consumed by these things, truly letting them saturate the core of who we are. We often forget about the millions of other people who also populate our world. The world is so much bigger than we think. What if we focused more on saturating this big world with good? What if we saturated our lives and the lives of others with meaning, purpose, and joy?
Through Healing Waters International’s Holistic WASH Model, safe water bring jobs, economic growth, and infrastructure. It gives local community members dignified work as water operators and distributors. Water is sold at a price that is affordable to even the poorest families in the community but also builds revenue for the community to pump back into it’s people. Families spend less money on doctor visits because they no longer deal with the effects of water-borne illnesses. This is real trickle-down economics (pun intended).
Access to safe drinking water really does change lives. Children can attend school, no longer sick from water-borne illnesses. Women can start small businesses, rather than spending their time boiling dirty water or caring for sick children. “No other single intervention is more likely to have a significant impact on global poverty than the provision of safe water.” (United Nations University & the International Network on Water, Environment & Health)
By equipping a local church with clean water, they have a tangible way to saturate their community with the love of God. Jesus met people’s physical needs first, then their spiritual needs. By offering safe drinking water, the church can then share the Living Water with their community, meeting both physical and spiritual needs. This is the Gospel being lived out.
Stay focused. Keep building. Sign up for reminders about Saturate.

CHIAPAS & OAXACA
Chiapas and Oaxaca rank among the bottom 3 states in Mexico in regard to clean water access. Not only does this mean that access to clean water is limited, but that the quality and consistency of water in people’s homes is often unreliable.
Our goal at Healing Waters International is to saturate communities around the world with access to clean water. We are partnering with Nazarene Compassionate Ministries and hundreds of local churches in Mexico to saturate Chiapas and Oaxaca, two of the poorest states in Mexico.
Many of the Nazarene churches in Chiapas and Oaxaca are located in and serve communities where there is little to no access to clean water. After hearing about our implementation system, local pastors realized that launching their own projects will not only create access to clean water in their communities, but will also create a new way for them to reach others with the love of Jesus.
By 2020, we want to saturate 250 communities in Mexico! And then we’ll go even further!
