Heart changer projects (program expenditures - $597,302. 74)in 2011, living waters produced a "world changing" pro-life documentary called "180 - changing the heart of a nation.

To date, over 230,000 copies of the dvd have been given out for free by staff and volunteers at high schools and universities domestically and internationally, and in total, 1,091,778 "180" dvds have been either given away or sold. The film continues to be broadcast internationally on several cable and satellite outlets like the daystar and enlace networks. In 2014, living waters continues to market this vital pro-life message that compares abortion in america to the jewish holocaust until every household in america has seen this documentary. The film is offered for free viewing on youtube. In 2012, living waters release a new documentary called "genius," which used discussion of the lives and statements of the beatles as a backdrop for exploration of people's attitudes toward commission of crimes all as commentary for the condition of man and his sinful nature, and the dire consequences of dying without christ's payment for your sin. As of december 2014, 121,109 copies of the dvd had been sold or given away. This film is also available for free viewing on youtube and has received 597 thousand views to date. And in 2013, living waters released its third documentary in the heart changer series, entitled evolution vs god. This riveting documentary simply asked questions of noted evolutionary scientists, biologist, and other scientists about their belief in darwinian evolution, and asks them to give one piece of observable proof. At the end of 2014, approximately 480,000 dvds have been distributed for free or sold, and the film has received approximately 2. 1 million views to date on our youtube channel. In 2014, our new film noah and the last days was released. This film examines the current sinful state of our society, and compares that to what the bible reveals about the last days. Over 87,000 dvds were sold or given away, with 1. 8 million views on youtube. In june of 2014, we began work on our 5th short film to be entitled audacity. This film will explore the hot-button issue of homosexuality in our society, and show christians how to share their faith and the truth of scripture in profound love. This will be our first scripted drama, and will entail much more use of outside production work for primary filming. Most filming was completed in 2014, leaving pick up filming and editing for 2015. Expected release date is june /july 2015.

web / radio outreach (program expenditures - $289,514. 20)production of the way of the master radio program was discontinued at the end of 2008. But in the latter part of 2010, living waters began webcasting the archived way of the master radio shows on oneplace. Com, as well as on our own webpage. Additionally, we began similar webcasts of our instructional videos called living waters university - short 5 minute witnessing tip videos - on oneplace. Com, lightsource. Com, and our own webpage. Monthly podcasts continue to trend anywhere between 40,000 and 50,000 downloads and mp3s. In 2014, living waters continued its sustained production of our new daily live web program, called the comfort zone with ray comfort. This program features a live, interactive talk-show format with live chat room, centering on the teaching of biblical evangelistic techniques and tips. Current news events are also discussed. The comfort zone is approximately 30 minutes in duration, and streams live over the internet, with archived shows available for later viewing on youtube, oneplace, and lightsource. Com. In 2014, we continued to see the popularity of the program grow in our archived youtube viewing (between 4 thousand and 10 thousand per program). We continue to look for more internet media outlets through which to help christians learn to share their faith, and continue looking to take the program to television. The program took a hiatus at the close of 2014, so that we could focus our efforts on our new film project audacity. The comfort zone should resume programming toward the end of 2015.

spanish language outreach (program expenditures - $195,650. 55)this program serves as a means for supporters of the organization to partner with us to have certain evangelistic teaching and resource materials translated in different languages. While we are actively translating some of our simple messages and resources to accessible digital resources, our primary focus remains on translating a wide variety of resources to the spanish language, as is befitting our current area demographic and the explosion of growth in the christian body in latin america. We continue to build our spanish web and television broadcast presence through continued engagement with various broadcast companies. In 2014, living waters continued to work with international broadcasters and supplied them with our current line of spanish language resources. Stations have been added domestically and in southern and central america. We continue to team up with organizations which are able to print and supply our resources locally to people in latin america, so the cost is feasible for the people in those locales. In 2014, the spanish dubbed version of season 3 of our way of the master television program was released, as well as evolution vs god, and two different gospel tracts. The dubbed versions of two more of our films are pending for 2015.

Living Waters passionately believes in their mission. Each person I have met in this organization is dedicated to the message they present. I am encouraged by their desire to be current in their products while at the same time remaining rooted in the Word of God. Being involved in a similar ministry I am challenged to keep up with their ever-increasing level of professionalism.

Living Waters is an excellent non-profit that actually performs the ministry it claims to. I have never felt as though I had wasted a donation to them as I knew it would be used for the furtherance of the Gospel. Their training is life changing and their love of the Gospel is awe inspiring. You will not go wrong by donating to this ministry.

For over a decade Living Waters has been instrumental in educating Christians in the area of evangelism. By utilizing modern media tools and techniques they have successfully engaged and instructed a whole new generation to defend and share their faith in Jesus Christ. I have found their resources to be easy to understand and use and their theology to be sound and scriptual. What a wonderful blessing they have been!

Evangelism is something every Christian should do, but unfortunately many do not. As a Christian I struggled with sharing my faith for many years. After being trained in evangelism with Living Waters resources and materials, God turned my life around and I am no longer afraid to talk about Jesus Christ to unbelievers. I now actually lead evangelism teams at my church! It's amazing to me. I believe in what Living Waters Publications is doing, so strongly that I am currently working as a full time staff member with LWP. After working with Ray and the other leaders here, I can honestly say that they are genuinely committed to teaching the Christian world how to share the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Living Waters is a trustworthy ministry proclaiming the gospel of saving grace found only in the Lord Jesus Christ. For those who have posted one star, it should be noted that they are not followers of Jesus Christ and therefore do not understand the ministry and mission of Living Waters. God bless Ray Comfort and all who work at Living Waters for their tireless efforts to reach the lost with the gospel. The ministry outreach of the 180 movie (180movie.com) has saved lives of unborn babies and convicted sinners of their need for a Savior. I do not work FOR Living Waters, but I have worked WITH Living Waters on ministry outreach. They are good stewards of the financial support that donors provide.
