Projects In Honduras

El Paraiso, Copan Honduras

Filter Project

El Paraiso, Copan, Hondruas is where this ministry began. We use El Paraiso as a cental location. A place to live and work, building the filters so we can then carry them to the surrounding villages. When we started this pure water project, we choose two villages to work in; Joconalis and Manguito. We first had a town meeting with the people of the villages to present the project and to see if they were interested. The were excited about finally having pure water that they could not wait to start. During the second meeting we had with the people we were able to share the gospel message using the story of Jesus and the woman at the well.

We then took down the names of people who were interested in having a filter and would be willing to take some time to help us with the installation as well as learn about the importance of clean water and how to care for the filter. We have also decided that if there were 2, 3, or sometimes 4 houses on the same lot, it would be better to put just one filter in a central location.

With ever filter we install we ask that the people who will be drinking from it will be there. It is important that they know what the filter is, how it works, and how to take care of it. It also gives us an opportunity to be able to pray over the filters and the families that will benefit from them.

We have completed installing filters in Joconalis and Manguito bringing pure water to over 1000 people. With the success of these first two villages and the positive response of the people we have decided to continue this project in other villages as well as individual houses. We always have a 2 town meetings before we begin installing filters to make sure the people are interested in the project, and it also gives us the opportunity to share the Gospel of Christ.
