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 presents the Gospel of Jesus Christ in a clear, simple, Biblical and effective way. I have seen and been involved in many ministries that desire to preach the Gospel, and go to great lengths and expense to reach people with God's message of salvation. But coercion and pressure do not make for true repentance. We have been made with intelligent minds and a conscience. I have and will continue to support Living Waters with my prayers as well as with my giving. I have personally met with many of the people involved with Living Waters and can say that they are not just sincere and dedicated. Because there are many who are so without being Biblical. But what is being accomplished through this ministry is changing many lives by accurately presenting the Gospel according to God's Word.

By the provision and resources given us graciously by our Heavenly Father, it has been a true blessing to find a ministry like "Living Waters Publications", to donate to. Their commitment to the furthering of the gospel, combined with their stewardship, integrity and tireless efforts in reaching the world with the Good News of Jesus Christ, are the reasons for choosing this ministry above most others to partner with whenever the Lord allows. The relationship longevity of the staff, volunteers and partners connected with this ministry, are yet another example of it's trustworthy reputation. We count it a privilege to be a very small part of this outreach and pray that others will come along side in support of L.W. ongoing projects, so that an increase of the great harvest is realized before that beautiful trumpet sounds!!!!

I first learned about Living Waters by reading Kirk Cameron's book "Still Growing". In it he talks about his involvement with Ray Comfort on their tv show "Way of the Master" and provided a website for the show. I checked out the website, looking for ideas to teach to junior high in Sunday school. I came across "The Good Person Test" where Ray Comfort takes you through the 10 commandments to show you what sin really looks like to God and how serious is it in His sight. I had attended church for 24 years and had never been confronted with the reality of my own sin. I thought I was a good person (I had done many good deeds and stayed out of trouble). Though I had believed in Jesus, I had never repented of (turned away from) my sin. It took 2 years for the Holy Spirit to work in me to bring me to repentance and genuine faith. Living Waters was instrumental to my journey to repentance. I had attended the "Transformed Conference" (a free conference put on by Living Waters) and began to read "School of Biblical Evangelism" (a book by Ray Comfort) and God began to soften my heart and open my eyes. I surrendered my life to Jesus in 2009 and since then I have learned more about the Bible than ever before. Living Waters provides creative, eye-catching gospel tracts, which have really helped me to share my faith. I have purchased and watched all of the episodes of Way of the Master and have learned so much about how to share the gospel with all types of people. I attended the "Deeper Conference" by Living Waters and received so much biblical teaching. My husband and I also were able to attend the "Ambassador's Academy", a 4-day intensive training on evangelism. We were so very grateful to be able to attend this Academy at half-price. It has dramatically changed our lives. Thank you to all the Living Waters staff and volunteers for always being available to answer questions and for your prayer support.

I am 77 years old. I was baptized at age 14. In and out of churches for the better part of my life. I always knew it was wrong to lie or steal; like most people we do it any way. My life truned around at age 40 (1975). Evangelism became a serious matter for me during those years. About 2005 the Lord led me to Living Waters ministy where I learned that my main issue from sinning is that I was sinning against God. Through their ministry I now use their gospel tracts as a way to share the life changing "GOSPEL" message. Their current promotion of www.180movie.com, which I whole heartly support, has changed lives and souls. From their tracts and this movie I have seem several people have their eyes and conscience open to information and issues that will change their life forever. I have found the Living Waters staff and their love for the gospel and their programs to be invalubale to help me and others share the gospel which is the power that leds to salvation of a soul which will live forever; somewhere.

Living Waters created the Way of the Master evangelism course that has changed the eternal destinations of likely millions of people. They created the Ambassadors' Academy to train interested Christians in the use of The Law (God's 10 Commandments) as the way to convict a person that we are all sinners deserving Hell. Once that was established it was a great pleasure to share the fact that God doesn't want anyone to perish, but all to come to repentance and trust in Jesus Christ. The Way of the Master is based in the manner that Jesus interacted with the Samaritan woman at the well. I was blessed to be one of 50 individuals across the nation who participated in the first Ambassadors Academy. It was a 3-day, real-time training in the Way of the Master. We had one day of intensive training by pastor/evangelist Ray Comfort and Kirk Cameron, TV star and a superb group of other evangelists. Day two was a street evangelism experience on Hollywood Blvd, interacting with complete strangers walking along the street. Day three we went to Huntington Beach to share the short Way of the Master message with those at the beach. After returning home to Wichita, Kansas I immediately started conducting street evangelism. I have trained over 50 people in the Way of the Master and have approached hundreds of people personally. My wife and I are enthusiastic donors to the Living Waters Ministry.

Living Waters is a bright light shining in this nation and throughout the world. Through books, tracts, videos, and live teaching seminars, they have been equipping Christians to biblically carry out the work of the Great Commission. Jesus told us to "go," and Living Waters is there to teach us how to do it in the most biblical and impactful way. I would never hesitate to recommend them to someone looking to support a ministry.

One of the things that I have always appreciated about Living Waters is that their main mission is to preach the gospel and that they are a equipping ministry. In order to do this they provide much free material and asked nothing in return. I've never felt like I've been pressured to donate but I joyfully give to this ministry. Also the resources that they produce and offer are extremely helpful in equipping my group and I to administer the gospel and fulfill the great commission. Their entire staff is and has always been extremely helpful and encouraging.
