TOGETHER THEY MOVED 6 METRIC TONS
Drive the highways, dirt roads, and byways in Liberia and you notice there is not a lot of livestock farming. The reason is not because livestock is not available, the reason is because feed is not available. For the past three years the Glenns, Sebalds, and the team have worked tirelessly to build a better feed source in Liberia for poultry. There is a plan in place to build a viable production network for the producers, growers, and operators. In order to build this network it takes togetherness as demonstrated early in the month of February with the six metric tons of corn arrived at the ARC that needed to be moved and stored for further processing. By the looks on their faces the team rested well from a job well done.
“The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, because He anointed Me to preach the gospel to the poor. He has sent Me to proclaim release to the captives, and recovery of sight to the blind,
to set free those who are oppressed, to proclaim the year of the Lord's favor." Luke 4:18-19
HOLLY AND RUTH CONDUCT A READING GLASSES CLINIC
The topic of hard work and togetherness continue as Holly and Ruth conducted a reading eye glass clinic at the ARC. Over two days 268 readers were fitted for those who needed them. HITHMI has been blest by Ruth's "vision for vision" since 2014 when she organized the first vision clinic. Over the past 8 years Ruth has ran 12 vision clinics with hundreds of people benefiting from prescription glasses, to sun glasses, to reading glasses. What a blessing!
PUSHING UP FOR JESUS
Not sure we need to say more about this picture. If you have been around "Pas-ta" Bill you know his love for Jesus is vibrant, real, and in reaching to many hearts. His teaching is not lost for lack of energy. In February over 65 people were connected to Jesus by extending agriculture education through Farming God's Way. Bill has a way of meeting people where they are and encouraging them to get all in for Christ.
Konah, Mark, and Michael made a trip to Foya, Lofa County to extend Farming God's Way to two communities; Yalladu Korkorsor and Ndoliloe. According to International Freedom Reports it is estimated that nearly 20 percent of Liberia's population is Muslim and Lofa is where the largest percentage live.
