Our focus at Water of Life is bringing the Gospel of Jesus Christ to West Africa and India. We use the gift of fresh water to open doors for our local pastors and ministry partners to share the Good News of Christ's salvation for all of mankind.
Below are some books and articles that come highly recommended about what we do and how we do it. Links are to Amazon Smile for purchasing (be sure to select Water of Life as your charity!), but buy books and read them wherever you can.
