Buckets & Water Bottles

Many Americans can't be without their water bottles & cell phones. They take them everywhere... in their cars, to the office, to church... & the list goes on! They use them more than 6 times an hour & they wear them hooked to their belts.
Recently, we journeyed with pastors down a dusty African road, to be shown the water needs in their villages. Glenda took many pictures of people on the road. Reviewing the pictures later, these women with their heavy bucket of water captured our attention. In the foreground of this picture, was also our water bottle, waiting to be enjoyed in the comfort of our air conditioned vehicle.
The reality of this stark contrast further motivates us to continue to bring clean water closer to those who walk so far, on hot dusty roads, burdened with heavy buckets of water.

What Makes the AFRICA OASIS PROJECT so Unique?

You will find us...
  • Traveling with Pastors to needy villages in Africa
  • Listening to the needs expressed for clean water
  • Preaching that Jesus is the Living Water
  • Providing clean water for thirsty people

We use donor funds carefully...

  • The National Church in every village is enabled to be the keeper of the well
  • Missionaries already supported by USA churches, network with the Africa Oasis Project to help bring water solutions throughout Africa
  • AOP does not have a big office with a huge PR budget. We work from offices in our homes or in our vehicles as we drive down dusty African roads
