I once saw a birthday card that began its greeting with “Everything I love in life is illegal, immoral, or fattening.”

One of the highest suicide rates in America is found at the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation located in South Dakota. Drugs, beer, and child molestation pervade this small community. The streets are lined with abandoned homes that were built to raise families but are now used in the late hours of the night by addicts. It is a town mostly void of hope.
Matthew grew up thirty minutes outside of the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation. God has given him a heart for the people of Pine Ridge.
“The problem is not the beer or the drugs, the problem is idolatry. They’ve created gods for themselves.”
Being white can make it difficult to evangelize on the Indian Reservation. The people are skeptical of him. But that doesn’t stop him from sharing the gospel.
“Living Waters helped me overcome my fear of man.”
He spends several days a week passing out tracts door to door. Recently, he was allowed to go to the jail where he showed “EXIT.” After several of the inmates confessed to having suicidal thoughts, they placed their trust in Jesus as their Lord and Savior!
“I don’t know if I’d be evangelizing if not for Living Waters. I hope to share the gospel with people for the rest of my life.”
Our partners make it possible to inspire and equip people like Matthew to proclaim the gospel. With your help, more Christians like him will be led to proclaim the good news of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior.
Will you prayerfully consider partnering with us this year?
