Project Description




John Birthday 12/06

I grew up in church. I do not remember ever hearing the Gospel. It was in college that I was asked what the Cross of Jesus meant to me. I did not know.  I studied the Bible and realized He loved me and died for my sins. I accepted Jesus as my Lord and Saviour on September 21, 1974. I was baptized shortly after in the university swimming pool. I am now a member of and sent out of Marion Avenue Baptist Church under the leadership of Pastor Joseph Brown.

Farming was my god, but I followed Christ’s calling to enter public water treatment for three decades, starting in 1980 till 2010. He placed on my heart the need to invent and distribute a water-treatment system in 2004. I believe these Scriptures for my ministry:  Matthew 25:35 and John 4.  I serve Jesus in each thirsty person and witness to offer living water. I am in my second decade of this ministry. God has let me manufacture 5,000 systems and distribute them in 50 countries. In Sudan, Africa, for example, 1,200 villages were given both waters.  More information and testimonies can be found at Hays Pure Water.

I began working in the ministry in 2005 and have seen many in 50 countries in 5,000 villages saved, grow in Christ, and become fruitful soul winners. My burden is to reach more around the world with both drinking and living water and to train them to become effective and fruitful soul winners. I have developed and manufacture a water machine that perfectly treats water for up to 5,000 people for several decades.

My desire is to work with the missionaries of Fundamental Baptist Missions International and assist them in planting churches. I want to see people saved and then train them to become soul winners. In addition, I have a strong burden to reach their entire village for Christ. This will be most effective through the water ministry-serving missionaries.

This will take much labor and sacrifice. I am ready to reach more of the world. I invite you to pray and consider partnering with me in this effort through your prayers and finances. Please contact me if you would allow me to share my burden and calling with you and your church.

If I can serve you in any way, please allow me to do so.

In 2006, after traveling around developing nations on missions trips, John Hays was burdened to create a low cost, portable solution for water purification. After reading the historical account of Elisha cleansing the water of Jericho in II Kings 2, John put his 30+ years of experience with municipal water works to use and developed the Khlor Gen system.

Through the years, the design and look has been changed and improved, but the mission has stayed the same. Provide people with clean water, reaching out to them through word and deed. Eight years and 4,000 units later, that mission continues full steam ahead.

John Hays Prayer Letter: Update on Ministering to Liberia

John Hays Prayer Letter: Update on Ministering to LiberiaI will bring to light the work in Liberia. Through $20,000 of donations, the Pure Water Foundation put this funding into Liberia. This money purchased 150 complete water systems (at $100 each), food, lodging, transportation, and fuel for our water team in country.

At the end of traveling in country and many training meetings, the country was greatly encouraged with healings from waterborne diseases, such as typhoid and cholera. For example, a man called to let us know that he was dying from one of these waterborne diseases. He was traveling to a clinic to receive medicine; however, the clinic had no medicine. But, he heard of a church in that town that did. He sought them out and was given treated water that had ozone, hydrogen peroxide, and chlorine. Within two hours, he was healed and returned home. He was given Living Water too.

Many people are still sick and unsaved. They are calling for Pure Water systems. Two hundred are being sent as soon as possible, with 700 more getting prepared for shipment, as promised, into multiple nations.

I responded to “the greatest problem the world has never acknowledged.”

I am sharing the Living Water with the world, using the “five loaves and two fishes” God has given me.

My finances are only at 10% of the need, but God will multiply what I have.

I am responding with compassion for the poor and needy. I’ve placed this in Christ Jesus’ hand.

I’m a blessed man because Christ has removed from my hands that which I don’t need.

My joy is sharing with His church. His mercies are new each morning.

God is allowing me to continue the water ministry in over 50 countries and in 12,000 villages.

Can you help by praying for or by supporting 1 Klor Gen system for $100?

Your support will give up to 5,000 people both drinking water and the Living Water for many decades.

His Water Boy,

John Hays
