Le Pont – A Bridge to Africa

Living Water for Two New Villages

  • July 12-23 I was in Togo for the inauguration of two Living Wells in villages with no electricity or clean water. 
  • Powered by solar energy, these wells give hope to women and girls who are tasked to fetch water for their families. Girls can now attend school and women can start small businesses through our Prisca Peace Project.
  • Watch these two short videos to see how your gifts are turning dreams into reality in West Africa – Rex

Get Water. Make Disciples.

I just received a call from a new friend who wanted to know what we do at Le Pont International. After a thumbnail sketch of our work, he said, The Lord spoke to me from Revelation 7:17, “Get water. Make disciples.”. While he was talking I read the passage. “For the Lamb in the midst of the throne will be their shepherd, and he will guide them to springs of living water, and God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.” Revelation 7:17 My heart burned as he shared these words with me. Please pray for our African Director, John Laba this weekend.

He is in Benin with Pastor Moustafa praying and planning for a Living Wells Project in this Muslim region. Moustafa’s wife is receiving a small loan along with another woman in the church to start businesses in Basilla, Benin through our Prisca Peace Project. 
The other woman recently became a Christian after Jesus healed her daughter of an incurable disease.  Her husband kicked her and the three children out. She fled to Basila where Moustafa and his wife took her in, rented them living quarters, and provided food. 

We are partnering with Moustafa to help protect, provide, and train this new muslim background follower of Jesus.
