Turning Vegies into Meat

Now that Gavriella is old enough to travel around, the two of us got to go on a field trip! I’ve been cooped up in the house since my last trimester (we feared the¬†bumpy roads might harm her), so it was a big day for the two of us. Our destination?

To teach our main four Bible students that they can support themselves off of agriculture, we planted an acre of watermelon during the hottest time of the year and gave them the responsibility of doing the labor, and praying for its sucess.… (more…)

Bible Study in Ateso

It was a little over one year ago that I was sitting in Nairobi waiting on College Hills’ Team to arrive while watching my future husband pass the late hours by translating a simple Bible curriculum into his tribe’s language. After many months of hard work, those deep in the village learning organic farming from our students are now also… (more…)
