Welcome to Namibia, the Land of the Desert. You have been here a while, walking through brown, brittle grass for what seems like forever. You stopped sweating long ago, as you simply have no more moisture to lose. Your mouth is so dry that your tongue is clinging to the roof of your mouth. You try to swallow, but you cough instead. The sun stares at you with an unblinking eye as it has done for so very long now. You know that you cannot make it without some refreshment, just a drop of water. Just enough to give some small illusion of relief. You look down, and your family is no better off than you. They struggle to keep going in the harsh conditions. You daughter's lips are cracked from exposure. You need water. You need it now. You are Namibia.
Namibia is a very dry country, with massive deserts covering the majority of the land and rain totals often staying under four inches per year. The Lord found a woman at a well and told her that what if she'd just ask, He would give her Living Water that would sate her soul's needs for all eternity. More than Namibia is in need of water, they are in need of the Living Water, Jesus Christ. Their families have not had evangelical missions work in roughly one hundred years. Generations suffering in meager conditions just trying to scrape by with their physical needs being narrowly met need to know that their is so much more to life than just surviving. They need what you and I have; A Savior.
Take a moment to consider the rich man and Lazarus. While he was being tormented in Hell he asked for a drop of water to ease his suffering, but when that request was denied, he asked for something greater. He asked for his family to be warned of the impending suffering that awaited them apart from the grace of God. Now look back at Namibia. They live such hard lives trying to put food in their mouths and clothes on their backs, but they have yet to realize that this life is as good as it will ever be for them if the perish without Christ! Go and warn them of the fire that awaits. Tell them of the Savior that will redeem their souls if they only trust Him. Partner with us to send the Living Water to the Land of the Desert.
