WHO WE ARE
In January 2012, after a time of corporate prayer and fasting for 40 days at home church, I heard the Lord say, “Now what?” I clearly heard, “Women at the Well of Living Waters reach ladies like the woman at the well (John 4:10) who are broken, lonely, discouraged and thirsty for more.” Not only did the Lord give the name for the ministry, but also a beautiful upper room facility to host monthly gatherings.
In March 2012, with seven women hungry and thirsty for more of God - not religious programs or traditions - but deep desire to draw closer to Heavenly Father and His plans and purpose for their lives and go tell others. Women at the Well of Living Waters (WWLW) was birthed, through prayer, Bible study, encouraging one another and fellowship. Outreach consists of donating to homeless shelter toiletries, socks, and baby items, school supplies along with hats, gloves, scarves, and jackets to shelters during winter months. Our Street evangelism consists of passing out “Bless You Bags” to homeless individuals and “You Matter Gift Bags” to ladies who need encouragement. We also collect donated items to prepare food/turkey baskets for families in need during the Thanksgiving holiday.
At our May 2012 meeting, some of the ladies brought their daughters and granddaughters ages 13 and older with them who were eager to return each month and bring their friends (Matthew 19:14). They share their various concerns regarding family, school, peer pressure, relationships, and social media as we listen, pray for them and mentor. We call them our “Daughters of Destiny.”
OUR VISION: To reach women and girls who feel discouraged, lonely, and brokenhearted seeking more as was the woman at the well. It is our desire to encourage, assist and point them to Jesus who saves, heals, delivers and transforms lives. We also edify and strengthen believers in their faith and discover their spiritual gifts. Throughout the Bible, Jesus loved, encouraged and ministered to women at their point of need like the Samaritan woman at the well (John 4:1-30).
MISSION: To empower ladies regardless of age, race or social status to know and have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ through prayer, read/study God’s word and disciple others. Along with the importance of having a Bible-teaching church home, fellowship with other believers and have another woman of faith to share, pray and be accountable during life journey and distractions. Our monthly gatherings purpose is to build up one another in faith to increase our knowledge and understanding according to God’s word. Our physical bodies are 70% water yet becomes dehydrated when we don’t drink sufficient amounts of water. Likewise, our soul/inner man becomes weak in faith and dehydrated spiritually when we don’t spend sufficient time in God’s word our spiritual manna, “Living Water” and to be filled with the Holy Spirit.
After the woman at the well talked to Jesus, she dropped her water bucket which she brought to be filled for physical thirst. Instead she ran into town evangelizing telling others to: “Come, see a man, which told me all things that I ever did, Is this not the Christ?” Many Samaritans came, saw and believed (John 4:29, 30; 39-42). The harvest is plentiful and ripe with people in our cities and nations going to and fro seeking to fill an inward void with temporal worldly things needing to hear “Good News” the gospel of Jesus Christ (John 3:16-17). Women at the Well of Living Waters Ministry seeks to be obedient to “Great Commission” (Matthew 28:19-20) “Go” tell others about Jesus Christ, who knows all things, changes lives, and is coming back!
