Darimil is the one of the students at the School for the Deaf in Santa Domingo, Dominican Republic. He is a part of the Life on Life program there.
The lesson on “Dealing with Pain and Death” was life changing for Darimil. He stood before two glasses in one lesson; one was filled with clean water and the other with dirty water. He understood the lesson. A life filled with Jesus is like the clean water; useful for those who are thirsty. But a life without Jesus is like dirty water—useless.
Darimil was inspired that day to make a positive impact with his life, not just on the students at his school, but if God allows, on people outside the deaf community.
“I want to be a light. I want to be a joy-filled person to all the people around me. I want to be clean water.”
But those who drink the water I give will never be thirsty again. It becomes a fresh, bubbling spring within them, giving them eternal life. John 4:14 (NLT)
God, when our hearts have become like a dry and thirsty land, go on ahead of us; travel deeper within us and strike the ground until we are filled with your living water once again.
Children in other parts of the world face death far more often than we do in the United States. To help them cope, Life on Life has a couple of lessons in the curriculum to help like “God Helps Me Grieve” and“Dealing with Pain and Death”.
