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.”

Scripture:

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)

Prayer:

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.

Handling Death:

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”.
