Spring of Water International Ministries
Spring of Water International Ministries (SOWIM) is a non-profit Christian
organization (501(c)(3)) formed in December 2009 by a group of dedicated
Christians, called by the Lord Jesus Christ, to carry out the evangelical
mission of preaching the gospel to the world.
The name “Spring of Water” comes from John 4:14, where Jesus answered a
Samaritan woman at the well, saying, “Those who drink of the water that I
will give them will never be thirsty. The water that I will give will become in
them a spring of water gushing up to eternal life.
Our mission is to preach the salvation of Jesus Christ and the truths in the
Bible through multimedia Bible study resources, so that many people can
drink of this water that will become a spring of water flowing from within
them giving them eternal life.
“Spring of Water” is chosen as the name of our organization not only for its
meaning in John 4:14 quoted above, but also for its acronym “SOW”.
SOW Bible study resources are like seeds, ready to plant God’s Word and
Jesus’ salvation in people’s hearts. People who use the materials are like
sowers, who work hard planting seeds in the mission field. Yet, it is God who
makes the seeds sprout, grow, and produce grain. When the grain is ready, it
will be a time of joyful harvest in the kingdom of God.
The Chinese name of our organization, 播種國際事工, can literally be
translated as “Plant Seeds International Ministries”, or “SOW International
