One Man’s Trash is Another Man’s Treasure

If any of you drive by our compound and see my husband hugging an enormous bag of rotten cabbage, know that we have not lost our minds. We are composting! Why? Because our students want to turn our compound into a demonstration ground where local believers suffering from famine in nearby villages can come and learn how to grow large… (more…)

The New Minisry Schedule

Prison Minstry Update

So delighted with Prison ministry results. Peter got saved from Prisons and continued with discipleship class. Now he is released from prison and still thirsts for more intensive discipleship.
