Click the play button and learn about the HAPPY SNAIL PROJECT happening at the ARC.
The leadership team, Mark, Peter, and Konah, meet every Tuesday to discuss operations at the LICC Agriculture Research Center - they recognize the role they have to ensure that the teachings of Farming God's Way is carried over into their daily work. Listen as the team explains how they are working to break the dependency cycle in Liberia by building a Happy Snail habitat.
The purpose of this habitat is to demonstrate to community members and ARC visitors that by starting with what you have in your hand you can grow bigger as you manage what you have to high standards.
The team is working on a larger more farmable snail production operation as they work to generate income and viable operations.
FARMING GOD'S WAY TRAINING IN PERU
In 2022 a team made an exploratory trip to Peru to see if communities would be interested in engaging in Farming God's Way training. The answer was yes and one year later Brian Smith from AgriStewards joined the Vargas family in Peru to lead two Farming God's Way trainings. One took place in just outside Moyabomba and the second one near the village of Naranjillo. A special thanks to the Smith family for the work they do sharing the Gospel through agriculture in-reach around the world, Brian travels, Jennifer holds down the home front and we appreciate their service. Also we would like to thank both Vargas families for once again working with Hope In The Harvest to share the Gospel in Peru.
FARMING GOD'S WAY AND THE WORLD FOOD PROGRAM
Konah Drogbay is working with representatives from local Cooperative Groups because the World Food Program will buy from Liberia farmers homegrown food for the WFP school feeding program. This is really exciting to encourage local farmers to engage in more productive farm practices and generate local pride that they are feeding their own school children. It is the desire for Liberian to produce more of what they eat and sell the excess - this is what we are praying and working hard for it to come to reality in Liberia.
May the resurrected Saviour Jesus Christ who gives wisdom, understanding and abundance life to anyone who faithfully asked of Him grant you agape love as you go through this communication. May God multiply your resources as you continue to help the helpless. Thank you for your continued support of Hope In The Harvest Missions International.
FINAL EXAMS WRAPPED UP AT LICC
Greetings everyone, trust all is well with you all. I am grateful to the almighty God for the successful end of this academic semester and also the end of the month of June.
The last two weeks I have been working with the students on their Final Exam and submission of grades.
With that, I have been working with the students to make sure that all of the projects (Tomatoes, Carrots and Lettuce) we've been working on be finalized and turned over to the ARC for completion.
Furthermore, We have been working on changing our brooding system in the poultry building in order to reduce the mortality of our day old chicks. So currently, we are using the LAB to do our brooding.
Finally, we are trying to do some ground work with the snail project which we hope you watch the video and support our work.
Thanks for your continue supports, we will continue to do our best.
APPRECIATING THE PLACE WE HAVE
Up and running again. I believe it is important to maintain the beauty of the Liberia International Christian College where the ARC is located. We built this fountain eight years ago and as we got busy we forgot to maintain it. Today this fountain has been restored as a welcome point to the campus, demonstrating a higher standard we have as Liberians for the area around us. No where in Liberia will you have a campus like we have at LICC. We hope you can come see it when the group comes in January. We are mindful of the support you have given us and we use the funds wisely and maintain what we have.
Did you see our snail video? We want to build a large place for the snails but are starting small so that the local community can replicate this work and make small money for themselves.
We are busy as a management team some months we have over 300 visitors to the ARC to train, learn, observe and share practices to grow Liberia. We are trying to do God's work here. Thank you good people.
