Central Asia: Waterwheels

Project #71839
Church Planting Middle East

Avant seeks to reach the Tajik people through an avenue which will help their livelihood – crops. Surrounded by mountainous terrain, many farmers and landowners lack sufficient water for crops and drinking. When an Avant team installed a new style of waterwheel in the area, the Tajik people were elated to see this simple machine lift water up 30 meters from a canal. Now, 17 waterwheels have been installed and our team knows that many more would benefit from a waterwheel.

To expand the project, they plan to employ a local believer, experienced in welding, to build waterwheels for those communities. As more waterwheels are built across the country, we expect that good drinking water and water for irrigation will be more readily available, improving the health and economy of this impoverished land.

As doors open for interaction among the Tajiks, this will bring opportunities to reach the people in the villages with a different kind of water - the living water of Jesus Christ. Your support makes these waterwheels possible. As Jesus is glorified through this project, we believe it is only natural that the rivers of living water will flow.
