In partnership with:
The Dagara are a previously unreached people group. They’re particularly receptive to the gospel’s message of hope and salvation, and water plays an important role in what has quickly become a completely African-led church-planting movement.
When Dagara children are sick to their stomach, their parents bring them to the tituolo (translated witchdoctor, sorcerer or fetisher), a tribal healer. Adults pin the child down, and the tituolo invokes spirits for guidance. He cuts the child’s belly over and over with a razor blade and applies “medicine”—natural elements like ground tree bark, ashes, or bits of termite mound.
People described how children scream and how their mothers can’t hold them close to comfort them afterwards because of the pain from the cuts, and it’s all for nothing. The problem is dirty water. Just imagine the difference it makes to provide clean water and hygiene and sanitation education—and to do it all in Jesus’ name
Living Water International (LWI) implements sustainable water, sanitation and hygiene programs in partnership with local churches all over the world, bringing life to communities and sharing Living Water—the gospel of Jesus Christ.
Pray for parents to no longer attribute sickness to evil spirits, and turn to God.
Pray that these children will be the last generation to visit tribal healers.
Pray for church planter, Yobamcheri, that many will experience the Living Water through his ministry.
