LWV- The Vision Coming To Life

Set in the heart of the West Kalimantan Jungle, Living Waters has not only grown to be a home for over 600  Dayak children but a family too. With a vision to provide accommodation for 1,000 neglected children and school for 2,000, Living Waters is truly a Miracle Zone. 

           We have over 300 hectares of land on our property (that's over 700-800 acres for you Brits!), which is set in the midst of the dense jungle. With God's hand and providence we now have finished various buildings and others which are still planned and in process. Homes for girls and boys, various Asrama's (homes for about 30 children in all ages together with house elders), workers’ and teachers’ accommodation, training centre, Praise & Worship centre, clinic, bakery, administration building, a nursery for the babies, visitors quarters, radio station, sewing rooms, Primary school, Senior High/High School. God is truly at work and alive here at Living Waters.

           Each child in Living Waters is able to grow, not only physically and educationally but also fed and trained spiritually. Every child which God sends to Living Waters is equipped so they are able to return to their villages later, as well as other villages that are still unreachable, to bring the good news to those who are still lost and be able to plant churches where there is none. They are able to be testimonies of God's love, share of miracles, share of the love they've received and how free it is for others to receive. We don't just have children here in Living Waters Village. We truly believe that here we have children which are growing to be future teachers, future Pastors, future Politicians, even future Presidents!

THE PROJECT

         

 

So, How Did It Actually Start?

 It all started many years ago when Ronny and Kay Heyboer left their home in Australia and followed God's calling to Borneo in 1995. With no money, few belongings and many people against the idea of their move they were completely trusting in the Lord and his plan. Beginning their work in the city of Kuching, East Malaysia on the Island of Borneo where Ronny was assisting the planting of churches in a local ministry.

           Later in 1997 they found themselves relocating to the Indonesia part of Borneo, all the way to West Kalimantan, where they continue to minister today. In 2002 they moved to the city of Sintang, where they bought a large plot of land further into the jungle where they saw God's vision taking place for these neglected children to have a home. Through being obedient and trusting in the Lord fully He has been able to use them mightily and help them overcome all the obstacles that came their way. All of which prepared them to be able to do the amazing task which God has given them.
