About For the Least of These...
Living Water Ministries
Micah and Dawn Turner founded For the Least of These... Living Water Ministries in June 2015. After a tragic accident in which he lost his son, daughter, and brother-in-law, Micah was charged with 3 counts of Vehicular Homicide for their deaths. He subsequently was sentenced to 8 years in the Florida State Prison System.
It was during this time that Micah answered the call of Jesus upon his life. The closed and concentrated setting of state prison allowed Micah to see the many different facets of societies, religions, and cultures. It was then that he began to see the need for the love of Jesus to be shown before the Gospel can ever be preached if it is to be received.
For the Least of These... Living Water Ministries is committed to showing the love of Jesus to those who might not experience it otherwise. In Matthew chapter 25 Jesus gave a parable of Judgement Day to His disciples. He said to them, "For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in: Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me" (Mat 25:35-36). They asked Him, "Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink? When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee? Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee?" (Mat 25:37-39).
It is His answer to these questions that is the foundation for For the Least of These... Living Water Ministries. "And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me"(Mat 25:40). The word MINISTER comes from the Greek word diakoneō, which means to be a servant, to wait upon. If we are to be servants of Christ Jesus, then we must serve others. Jesus said, "And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me" (John 12:32). By showing the love of Jesus to a lost and dying world we lift Him up to be seen above all.
The second part of For the Least of These... Living Water Ministries is the Living Water. The Bible declares that Jesus is the Living Water by which we will never again thirst. We are dedicated to preaching the Truth of Jesus Christ to all. At For the Least of These... Living Water Ministries we are committed to helping others fulfill their ministry calling to minister to others as well. We stand on Deuteronomy 4:2, "You shall not add to the word which I command you, nor take from it, that you may keep the commandments of the LORD your God which I command you." This principle of God was carried through to the very end of scripture in Revelation 22:18-19. We stand on the Bible alone... nothing more and nothing less.
"In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, 'If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink. He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water'" (John 7:37-38).
