It is going to be a Slow, Non Commercial Christmas

Life really slows down here as December advances.  Limited commercialism, a number of business closures, and from 15 December through the first week of January, nearly everyone goes on holiday(vacation) of some sorts.  Luckily, we should be starting work on the farm at that time with renovations for the Intern housing.

We look back at the year gone by and are so grateful to YOU for your prayers and support.  Here is a glimpse of what you have assisted us with this year, and what we are believing for next! :

We are not fond of "quantifying" the Lord's work and find ourselves running the extreme opposite direction at times.
With that said, we do want to give you an accurate report of the year gone by and where we need your help in the year ahead!  Praise GOD!
In 2014 The Lord allowed us to be part of the following with your support and partnership along with local churches and missions agencies here on the ground:
Helped plant a new church
Secured a ministry farm / ministry base
Feeding and biblical care efforts for over 1200 children at 15 locations
