When people ask us how the Living Water Project thrives by an all-volunteer model, the answer is simple: We have outstanding, dedicated local partners in every country where we’re active. The newest of these partners is Alfred Beyan, who lives in Monrovia, Liberia. After being introduced to Alfred through a common acquaintance in 2016, it immediately became clear that he is passionate about reaching the people of Liberia with not only clean water, but also serving various other ways and bringing the Gospel of Jesus.
Alfred works with a team of evangelists who go all over Liberia, having to trudge through jungle-like terrain to reach some remote villages. Since our partnership with him began in October 2017, Alfred has overseen the completion of five new LWP wells in villages where he and his team serve. This October he identified five more villages in dire need of clean water, and construction is already well underway on three of those wells.
One of the initial five Liberia wells constructed in July 2018 was in the village of Wee Town. These pictures show the dirty stream the community had been using for drinking, cooking and cleaning, and the newly completed well bringing forth clean water. After returning from praying and dedicating this well to the village, Alfred remarked, “I give God the glory that this well is finished. I actually shed tears when I saw the water they had been drinking, cooking and washing with.”
The Living Water Project is grateful for Alfred, and for his hard work and dedication to serve the people of Liberia in the name of Jesus. When you think of the Living Water Project, remember Alfred and our other local partners - the “hands and feet of Jesus” that make this work possible.
