Water Cisterns

A Water Cistern project and a School Children Project were among the projects benefited from our Christmas Offering in 2000. A China Short Term Mission Team went to south China and had the privilege to witness the fruit of this fund.


Guangxi is a dry province and water is very precious. The water cisterns give a significant economic boost to the communities who benefited, allowing them to take in several harvests each year. Our fund provided forty families to build 40 water cisterns. The two types of cisterns allow for irrigation of crops and drinking water. The villagers are very grateful to receive this gift. Now they have clean water to drink and are sick less often. What is most exciting is that many families experienced double and even triple harvests. This certainly has led to the improvement of their lives. A lot of their children no longer need to help in the fields and instead are able to attend school.
