Who We Are?
Since its inception the work has been based on a foundation of faith and by God’s grace has maintained that position until the present time.
The mission’s name originated in the passage from the Gospel of John where the Lord Jesus, on the great day of the feast, called out in a loud voice, “If any man thirst, let him come to me and drink. He that believes in me as the scripture said, rivers of living water (Vernacular = Jivan ka jal ki nadia) will flow from his innermost being.” John 7:37-38
The mission was founded during 1980/81 as a direct result of a command from the heart of God. A rather infamous former hotel was made available for this.
The people God has called to be part of this Mission are from various backgrounds and denominations. Rev. Greg Denysschen is the Director of the Mission. All who live and work on the Mission live by faith. No one earns a salary. Each day God supplies what is necessary to keep the Mission running.
Over many years God has taught us that the most effective tool of evangelism is a life completely surrendered to Him. In every area of service at the Mission there are opportunities to preach the Gospel without a word… be it through the preparation of a meal, the way a call is answered at Reception, or the hard work in the Workshop and the Market Garden.
Individuals and Groups of young and old alike receive a warm welcome at the Mission. The “Hot Youth Camp” was hosted in 2007 to inspire young people to live fully for Christ. Seminars on Marriage and Family are held, and also training in how to reach people from a Hindu background. Visitors are accommodated without cost in rooms within the main Mission building, or in the Men’s Dormitory. Three meals a day are provided, as well as tea and refreshments at appropriate times.

It is our conviction that if the four walls of the prayer rooms could speak they would tell of remarkable things that have happened to people over the last 40 years when they get right with God.
we often say amongst ourselves that God would have to do ordinary things for us to take note again, because the supernatural is such a daily experience we have got used to it and are in danger of becoming familiar with the holy things of God.
Our Core Values
We are acutely aware that God desires uprightness and integrity at all times. We are also aware that man in his own strength cannot achieve this high standard. Consequently we trust in the Living Risen Christ to enable us in His strength to live lives that glorify His Name!
