"Meet Jesus at the Well, Meet God in the Garden: Developing Churches as Centers for Clean Water and Nutritious Food”
Water and food are obvious physical needs for every human. By working together, communities can meet these needs for themselves. Sometimes, facilitation is needed to bring together a community’s collective knowledge. Workshops and experiential learning build local capacity to grow nutritious food or access clean water. Kingdom Workers facilitates this growth through local Lutheran churches, while tying the work to Jesus’ parables. We pray that people would turn to Jesus as the Water of Life and consider the seed of the Word sown in their hearts, as they strengthen their bodies and families.
Coral Cady has been with Kingdom Workers since the summer of 2014. Her work is centered in Southeast Asia. There she partners with local congregations in health and education-related issues. The need for clean water is the biggest issue facing the people in remote villages where she works, yet she realizes that water is only one piece of the puzzle. A holistic approach is necessary to bring health and healing to an area that has been long neglected. For fifteen years Coral served as a teacher in WELS schools in the US and then spent another fourteen years as a teacher in international schools in Indonesia and Vietnam.
