“Now Jacob’s well was there. Jesus therefore, being wearied from His journey, sat thus by the well. It was about the sixth hour. A woman of Samaria came to draw water. Jesus said to her, “Give Me a drink.” For His disciples had gone away into the city to buy food. Then the woman of Samaria said to Him, “How is it that You, being a Jew, ask a drink from me, a Samaritan woman?” For Jews have no dealings with Samaritans.” John 4: 6-9
Sanma Water Wells go beyond just water. They help to heal divisions in the community.
When Jesus was confronted by the effect of a cruel social system of the time that prevented even giving a cup of drink to the thirsty, His offer was not anything to treat the symptom, but a cure that would uproot the cause. The woman would find water that quenches the thirst of her soul. She found strength in joy, became a messenger of peace, healing, good news.
We have built wells in several parts of India and Africa. Honoring the gifts and prayers of people God used these wells as a display of His caring. Families now enjoy the time they saved bringing water from longer distances. When water became scarce during harsh summers, strife was common. In such cases a well of water brings healing, mutual support.
