JOHN HAYS

SERVING WITH HAYS PURE WATER

ABOUT

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: A Wonderful End to 2023!

John Hays Prayer Letter:  A Wonderful End to 2023!What a wonderful end we had to 2023! We saw God’s hand of blessing on the water ministry. In all, we finished the year with 2,354 villages receiving water-treatment systems and the Gospel and a total of 30 new church plants. The water-treatment systems led to countless new believers in Christ and brought much improved health to all who received them. Daily reports still arrive.

This week, for example, Pakistan reported 185 new believers, and Liberia had 200 more. To God be all the glory! Villages are being transformed.

Clean water is flowing in over 2,354 communities, and transformation will quickly follow. Studies will be resumed. Health will be restored. Time will be reclaimed. Churches will be planted, and existing ones will grow. In each of these communities, extraordinary change is just around the corner, because where clean water flows, communities flourish.

This year has been special because God let us work in 21 countries: Ghana, Guatemala, Liberia, Sierra Leone, Pakistan, Honduras, Cambodia, Papua New Guinea, Syria, Turkey, the Philippines, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Brazil, India, Rwanda, Benin, Zimbabwe, Peru, Nepal, Malawi, and Panama.

In January 2023, we set the ambitious goal of installing a new director of Hays Pure Water, Bro. David Boyce. David and his wife Stephanie are traveling abroad, constructing systems, and humbly leading by God’s Word.

Thank you for your prayers and support. By God’s grace, we can go to the world and proclaim His redeeming love in 2024.

God’s water boy,

John Hays
