Who We Are
Current statistics reveal that there are at least 663 million people on the planet that do not have access to clean water. The divine wisdom of God through the guidance of the Holy Spirit has given the founders of Life Well International an understanding of the physical and eternal spiritual needs of the people in underdeveloped countries; and a passion for meeting those needs through active ministry by being the hands and feet of Christ.
In 2010, Life Well International co-founder John Gates traveled with Hearts for Honduras to drill a well for a rural village near Tocoa, a village without access to clean water. For a couple of years, John continued sere with Hearts for Honduras and felt a calling to share the joy and blessings he experienced. In 2012 John led a small group of people from his home church to Honduras. Each year John and a core group from his church returned to Honduras and drilled wells.
In 2016 John, along with Erik Beishir, Mark Clements, and Jim Mangels, felt a need to expand the clean water mission in both geographical reach and number of wells drilled each year. This sense of need led to the formation of Life Well International, which has now provided five wells for rural communities in Honduras.
